Instructions

BASE CARD

Cut a piece of dark pink card stock measuring 7" x 10", score it at 5", and fold.

BACKGROUND HEART and MAT LAYER

Cut/emboss pink card stock using the largest Scalloped Heart die. Adhere a pink Nestabling heart sticker of the correct size to the heart. Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8". Mount the pink heart on the left side of the patterned paper. Tie a bow, and mount it with a strip of ribbon across the heart and patterned paper using double-sided tape.

IMAGE

Stamp the heart image onto white card stock, and use the matching scalloped heart die to cut it out. Stamp it again, and use the Bella Rose die to cut out the main rose from the image. Use scissors to clean up any edges that need a closer trim.

Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Roses: RV63, RV66, RV69
  • Leaves: G24, G29
  • Baby's Breath: R30, Peach SPICA pen

Mount the heart over the pink heart and ribbon using foam squares. Mount the trimmed rose over the matching rose image on the heart using foam squares.

INSIDE

Cut a piece of pink card stock measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8". Mount this inside the card, and using dark pink ink, stamp the Happy Valentine's Day greeting on the right upper part of the inside of the card. Cut/emboss a small scalloped heart from the patterned paper, adhere a pink Nestabling heart sticker around the border. Cut/emboss a smaller scalloped heart from the pink card stock. Mount this on the patterned paper heart, and mount the stack to the left of the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
