Hanging Hearts Valentine’s Day Card

Hanging Hearts Valentine's Day Card

(inside: have a happy day!)

I went with a simple design and traditional colors on this 4 1/2 inch square Valentine’s Day card.

The beautiful hanging hearts die cut was made with the “Frame Love” die by Scrap Man. I made the die cut into a sticker by adding Super Tacky Tape by Creek Bank Creations to the back of the red card stock before die cutting. The die cut was adhered to a white panel embossed with the “Subtle” embossing folder from Stampin’ Up.

This die cut is very thin and delicate and does not hold it’s shape well when trying to adhere it to the card so I created a template by positioning and cutting the image from plain white card stock that was the same size as my card front. I was able to place the template over the actual card panel and drop the die cut into the negative space on the template and shape it before sticking it down. 

The greeting is from the “Miniature Type” stamp set by Clearly Besotted. It was heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut with a die from the “Sentiment Strips” die set from Photoplay. The sentiment on the inside is from the “One in a Million” set from Gina K Designs (retired?).

If mailed in a square envelope, this card would have required a trip to the post office so I used a regular A2 size envelope. It was a little too big for the card but much easier!

Thanks for checking out my card project!
