“Simply Handmade Magazine” had a great Valentine’s issue “be mine.” In it was a project that inspired me similar to the one I made here. This is a quick and easy card to make that is absolutely gorgeous when finished.

  1. Cut a 12″ x 6″ piece of white cardstock. Fold it in half. Set aside.
  2. Cut a heart 4-1/2″ wide by 4-3/4″ high from white cardstock.
  3. Cut pieces of lace and ribbon so you completely cover the heart from Step 2. The edges should hang off of the heart.
  4. Using Aleene’s Tacky glue adhere the pieces of ribbon and lace to the heart. Slightly overlap some of the pieces. Let dry.
  5. Turn the heart over. Using sharp scissors trim the lace and ribbon around the edges of the heart. If any of your lace or ribbon begin to fray, dab a small amount of Aleene’s tacky glue to the edges and let dry.
           
  6. Cut a 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of fuchsia cardstock and glue it to the front of the white base card you made in Step 1.
  7. Using the Xyron tape runner glue the heart on to the fuchsia cardstock on the front of the card.
  8. Stamp your Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment on white cardstock with the pink pigment ink. Sprinkle with embossing powder. Remove any excess powder. Use your heat gun to set.
  9. Tear the edges of the stamped sentiment. You will end up with a 2-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ rectangle when done.
  10. Using the foam squares adhere the Valentine’s Day sentiment at an angle to the bottom left corner of the card. It should overlap the heart.
  11. Fill in the two hearts on the sentiment with the Stardust Stickles. Let dry.
  12. Using the glue dots adhere a silk flower to the top left and bottom right corners of the card. Voila! You have a beautiful one of a kind Valentine’s Day Card!!!

  1. Ohh! Sophia this is SOOO pretty! Love all that lace and ribbon, how clever of you to cover the heart with all these different textures. I love the distressed look of the paper the sentiment is stamped on. Lovely Card!! 🙂

  2. Gee… how’d you know I procrastinated until the last minute on making a Valentine’s Day card? This is beautiful, Sophia! I don’t have all the ingredients at my finger tips, but I may try it anyway, with some modifications for inventory. I need to check out that embossing powder. Sounds cool! Thanks for the tutorial! 🙂

    • Hi Beth! Before I started this card my other idea was to use different patterned papers instead of the ribbon but I wanted to add a bit of texture. The embossing powder is the amazing – I love it! But don’t forget the heat gun to set the powder. Good luck with your card!!! ~Sophia

  3. There’s nothing more beautiful than getting a card made by hand with lots of loving thoughts to go with it. Wonderful! Happy Valentine’s Day. Have a blessed day.
