Valentine's Day is just two weeks away. Today I designed a card using the new Love Struck die set, Susan's Garden Notes Pansy and Leafy Berry Branch, and the beautiful A Way With Words Wishing You A and the Cherish die sets.
This is a 6-inch card.
Use a piece of White Soft Finish card stock cut 6 inches square. Lay the back of the Love Struck die on the card stock with the back facing the card stock. Use the embossing plates and embossing pad and run through your die cutting machine. This will 'deboss' the heart into the card stock. Use a Scoreboard and score around the edges of this piece.
Use the Garden Notes Leafy Berry Branch die set to die cut one branch. For the berries, use Nuvo drops. Let the berries dry while working on the rest of the card.
Die cut the Love Struck heart using the pink section of the ModaScrap Fly & Scrap design paper. Attach the pink heart down in the debossed heart.
Use the Garden Notes Pansy die set and create 10 lavender pansies (violets). Use 85 lb Soft Finish Cardstock to die cut. Color the flower petals, shape with the Flower Tool Kit, and assemble. Add Prills to the center of each flower.
Use the A Way With Words Cherish die set and die cut four Cherish die cuts. Glue the sentiments together for dimension. Attach to the Love Struck heart as shown.
Use the A Way With Words Wishing You A die set and die cut the 'you' sentiment. Attach the ModaScrap Fly & Scrap card stock, that has clear double sided Adhesive on the back to white card stock before die cutting. This will give it some dimension. Attach the sentiment on the lower right corner of the heart.
Attach the Leafy Berry Branch to the left side and bottom of the heart, as shown. Attach the pansies and pansy leaves.
Have you started your Valentine cards yet? Valentines are always beautiful when completed with any of Susan's beautiful flowers.
