Clean and Simple Valentine Cards!

Yes, I am fully aware this is the wrong season for this but after I made this for the Rubbernecker Slimline release I looked it over and realized it’s a perfect idea for clean and simple Valentine cards! And it was so super easy to make! Of course the hearts could send any kind of love message but, I don’t know, I am seeing a Valentine!  My favorite thing about this new Slimline OPC Hearts is all the tiny hearts that can be stored and used on all kinds of projects.  I used them here in the center of the frames along with the tiny leaves cut from the Flower Stems and Tiny Flower Buds.

The Slimline Heart Frame and Card Base

  • Cut the slimline frame using pink cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the white card base.

Love Sentiment with Flowers and Ivy

I love to use red, white and green to create Valentine card with a die cut love sentiment embellished with flowers and foliage.  The decorative framing in all white creates dimension and interest but still allows the sentiment , flowers and ivy to be the main focus.  For this project I used the Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo #3, Love, Small Flowers #2, Large Ivy, Small Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.

It's always fun to use red, white and green to create a love sentiment card with flowers and ivy for Valentines. Click thru to see how I made this elegant card.

The Frame and Card Base

  • Create an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Cut the Rectangle Combo frames using white cardstock.
  • Turn the frame sections face down and apply 1/2″ double stick tape all the way around to attach the sections together.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

The Love Sentiment

  • Cut the love sentiment using red cardstock.
  • Place a strip of double stick tape on a clean surface and roll up into a string to use on the back of the sentiment.

double stick tape 2

  • Attach the strip of tape to the back of the sentiment and attach it to the card base.  Note:  I like using rolled up double stick tape on the back of delicate die cut sentiments.  It is thin enough not to show and yet holds the sentiment away from the card base.

The Flowers and Ivy

  • Use red cardstock to cut the flowers and green cardstock to cut the ivy.
  • Trim the ends off the large ivy and attach two to each corner of the frame using glossy accents.
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
  • Assemble the two flower sections together and attach using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching two small ivy leaves and one tiny flower bud to the O on the sentiment using glossy accents.

A die cut love sentiment is perfect for Valentines.

Die Cut Heart

I have an elegant yet simple framed die cut heart card to share with you today using the Rubbernecker Stamps 5100-14D Smart Heart Outline Stitch Die, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Frame, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack and 5110D Small Leaf Group

Use a die cut heart for a Valentine and anniversary card.

The Frame Layers

I cut the rectangle frame die out once in red and again in white.  I separated the red and white frame layers and then attached them back together using double stick tape alternating the colors to create lots of colorful contrast. Once all the layers were attached I applied pieces of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

Use a die cut heart for a Valentine card.

The Die Cut Heart and Flower

The die cut heart was attached in the center of the framed opening using mounting tape.  I formed the tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and attached them together using glossy accents.  The leaves were gently formed with my fingers. I attached the leaves and flower to the heart using glossy accents.  I attached one tiny white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drop to the center of the flower using glossy accents to finish.

Use a die cut heart for an anniversary card.

You can find all the blog hop details on the Impression Obsession Blog. I know you are going to enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects our team has to share with you. 

My project today was made using Heart Beat and You & Me.

making a clean and simple die cut heartbeat Valentine card is fun

I cut the Heart Beat in the white layer, turned it face down and applied double stick tape over the die cut opening. I cut the Heart Beat again in red and inserted it the negative opening.  The Me & You sentiment was attached to the card base using a strip of rolled up double stick tape.  It doesn’t get much easier than this.

Impression Obsession Spring Release Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of the Impression Obsession 2018 Spring Release Hop!  We have some beautiful new stamps and dies to share AND Gift Certificates to give away! You can find all the blog hop details on the Impression Obsession Blog. I know you are going to enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects our team has to share with you.  

My project today was made using the Layered Heart Frame, Mailbox, Lacy Hearts, All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2, Grass Border and Small Grass Border.

would you like to learn to make a Heart Framed Mailbox Valentine Scene card

I love making scenes on my card fronts and I think this fun framed mailbox Valentine card is so fun.  I started by attaching the two grass borders to the back of the frame using double stick tape. Next I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached the Layered Heart Frame.  The last step was to apply double stick tape to the back of the frame layers and attach to the card base. 

Making a Heart Framed Mailbox Valentine Scene card is so fun

The mailbox pieces were cut and assembled using glue dots and were attached to the card base using mounting tape.  I used the small hearts from the Lacy Heart Frame that I used on my post yesterday to decorate the letter, mailbox and to create flower bed full of heart flowers.

Impression Obsession Spring Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the Impression Obsession 2018 Spring Release Hop!  We have some beautiful new stamps and dies to share AND Gift Certificates to give away! You can find all the blog hop details on the Impression Obsession Blog. I know you are going to enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects our team has to share with you.  

My project today was made using the Lacy Hearts, Love Arrow, Flourish Heart and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.

A Die Cut Heart Valentine Card is easy and fast

This was such a fast and easy Valentine card to make.  I attached the Lacy Hearts layer to the back of the frame using double stick tape.  I then applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the red background layer and then attached it all to the card base using ATG adhesive.

Die Cut Heart Valentine Card is so much fun to make

The heat is the leftover piece from the Flourish Heart frame and it was attached it to the card front using mounting tape.  I used a rolled up strip of 1/8″ double stick tape to attach the Love Arrow to the heart.  It doesn’t get much easier than this. It’s a perfect Valentine card for me to give my husband.

I hope you enjoy the hop.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
