Impression Obsession “I Adore You” Valentine Card

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession “I Adore You” design team Valentine challenge.  The new line of Valentine stamps and dies are so pretty.  I love the Heart Flourish framing the Hinged Heart die cut window with the small image from the String of Hearts set on the front and the larger heart and flower image inside the window. 

Making a Handmade Die Cut Flourish Heart Valentine Card is so fun and easyI secured the stamps and white cardstock in my MISTI and stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut the images out and colored them using Memento markers.  I used the Hinged Heart die to cut the window opening on the white layer and cut a second Hinged Heart in red.  I used my craft knife to cut the front flap of the red heart off and attached it over the white using glossy accents. 

It's so fun to make a Handmade Die Cut Flourish Heart Valentine Card

I placed a long section of 1/2″ double stick tape onto my table and rolled it up with my fingers to create an adhesive rope to attach the Flourish Heart to the card base.  I tucked the larger heart image inside the heart window and attached with glue dots.  I finished the card by adding white Nuvo crystal drops to the flower centers and around the board of the red heart.

Die Cut Valentine Card

I like to use red and white to create a clean and simple die cut Valentine card. Silhouette images appear so crisp and clean with the colorful contrast.  I love using the Impression Obsession Songbird Branch cut in white and layered against the red Essentials by Ellen Folk Hearts. Layering the heart with the white Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables adds another element of contrast for the images.

making a die cut valentine card is so much fun

I used a large stylus and molding pad to form the leaves and the birds. The white scalloped background, the heart and the songbirds were attached using mounting tape. I never like creating projects where all the layers are attached flat to each other.  Adding space between the layers creates an element of dimension and interest to a clean and simple card.

I really enjoy making projects with lots of detail but it is also fun to create an interesting clean and simple project.  Thanks for coming by today. I hope I have inspired you to create a clean and simple die cut valentine card of your own,
