Using Stardream cardstock as the base for my card, I created a Valentine’s Day card. Testing out the usability of the Stardream cardstock, I used a variety of different techniques. Drawing on the cardstock with markers, gluing an element down, and adding vinyl, the Stardream cardstock accepted all without any special effort.

Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I will be sharing projects with you twice a month along with a free SVG file.  

The card stock used for this project was Stardream Metallic in Eris. CutCardStock has a ton of different colors of Stardream to choose from, they are all just beautiful and my favorite cardstock from CutCardStock.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut vinyl and draw on the card base. The Cricut only draws the outlines of letters so if you want solid letters you need to color them in.

Here the letters are colored in and I have added a small heart over the apostrophe that I colored in to match the coloring, and I am checking out the placement of the vinyl heart.

A close-up of the card shows the little heart better. Looking closely, you can also notice the two colors of the word valentine’s, which gives a slight dimensional look to the letters.

Please visit me at Try it – Like it – Create it to see a video tutorial of the construction and grab the free SVG file. Valentine’s Day (available1/13)

Hi, I am Janet. I am married to my husband Dan and we have two teenaged girls. Nowadays I work from home. I have always loved to create. As a child, one of my favorite things to do was talk my mom into a trip to the craft store. I took my love of art and craft and studied Graphic Design in college. Then I pursued an MFA in Graphic Design and an MS in New Media. I left a prosperous career as a college professor to raise our girls. Looking for a creative outlet, I started a website; Try it - Like it - Create it
