Well Written Valentine - No Stamping Card - Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Happy Valentine's Day! :o)

In celebration of today, I have created a Love / Valentine's card - not something I generally do :o)

I haven't any specific products relating to Valentine's so I had to improvise a little. What I do have is the lovely new Heart punch pack, so chose to use them for my card today. 

I decided to do patchwork hearts and use the beautiful papers from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty pack. These papers are very soft and romantic so they were perfect for my project.

I haven't any Valentine sentiments as such so looked to my Well Written dies - you have so many words in there to choose from!

I picked out 'Love You' and also thought the Flourish would work well in the Champagne Foil to match the foil in the papers.

This was my first version of the card. I used papers from the Best Dressed 6" paper stack for the Hearts this time. I also embossed the background and the Hearts using the Parisian Flourish 3D folder.

The colours here are Blackberry Bliss and Purple Posy. The sentiment is made up of four layers all stacked together. I added this to the front of the card but I don't like it ... it's just too much - which is why I changed it for my later card.

Of course these Hearts don't just have to be for Love or Valentine cards ... I created a Birthday one too.

I only used one Heart this time and embossed the background using the Absolutely Argyle folder.

The papers are from the Regals 6" paper stack and the yellow used is Crushed Curry. I thought this would work well as a Masculine card.

The sentiment is again made up of four layers stacked together, this gives it a lovely dimension when added to the card.

Here is the Video ...
