A Valentine's Card

Hey there.  Time has slipped by me lightning fast this week.  Here it is already Wednesday and this is my first post.  Oh well, better late then never.

Are you late getting those Valentine's Day cards made??

I have a quick share for you today.  Quick as in, I don't have tons to say but I have a Valentine's Day card idea to share that is super quick to make!

I used a Tim Holtz Sixxix die, Stacked Words: Valentine's to create this card along with some white and red cardstock, a heart punch, some mist, some ink and a Studio Calico gem.  This card goes together super quick but I think it has great impact.

The die I used is all sold out over at Blue Moon Scrapbooking, but you could get a very similar effect using an alphabet die such as this and cutting out a few of the x and o.

(Psst, Blue Moon Scrapbooking has been getting in a ton of the new goodies from CHA including lots of new Crate, Maggie Holmes, Amy Tangerine, Studio Calico and so much more!)

Ok, back to the regularly scheduled programming.


All you need to do is cut your shapes out of white cardstock, with exception to one of them, which you'll cut from Red Cardstock.  Mist one using red and pink mists.  Ink one using a very pale pink ink.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad SPUN SUGAR.  Line them up along the edge of your card and glue them down. 

Finish by punching a small heart shape.  Add a foam dot (these are my favorites) to pop it up and glue it in the center of the red 'O'.  Add a gem to the heart and you all are set.


You can do this concept using a variety of shapes.  Hearts, the word 'LOVE'.  Really, the possibilities are endless.  Have fun!
