An Easy Valentines Day Card


Hello everyone today I have my DT make for papermilldirect, a quick Valentines Day card.  This is something different for me, no stamping, die cutting or machine cutting. I used only papers and toppers from a paper pack which came free with a magazine (back in 2014), papermilldirect smooth white and Christmas red card. 

To start I cut three oblong shapes from the heart patterned paper, folded one short end in half without creasing and snipped the bottom off at an angle to create the flag.  The topper and sentiment were attached  to 250gsm card before cutting them out to give them more substance.  The flags were layered onto a piece of red card and the topper and sentiment attached with sticky fixers before being added to a super smooth white 300gsm card blank.  Thick bakers twine was tied round the card with a charm, I embossed the charm with red embossing powder to match the card.

I used the following materials to make this card:
  • Papermilldirect super smooth white 300gsm, plain whie 250gsm and Christmas red cardstock
  • free paper and topper pack from Making Cards magazine (2014)
  • distress ink
  • scissors
  • glue
  • bakers twine
  • charm
I have a box full of these paper packs and decoupage pads which I have saved with the intention of using, this is the first time I have used any, and some date back years.  Well I may get round to using some more one never knows!

Thank you for calling in today, and a big thank you to all you ladies who supported the Oak House Studio One Stamp Event this weekend, and all those who popped over to leave a comment on my posts.
