Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm back! I'm starting 2020 with my birthday month. I know it has been some time, but due to a medical condition I found myself out of commission for some time. That being said...I hope that you are as excited about Valentine's Day as I am. This weekend I'm heading to a craft event with a bunch of ladies and it really was just a crop and craft, but we decided to make some items for trading.
That will be for a latter post though. First I will be walking you through how to make this cute little number!
Once you have all your supplies ready, you can start by coloring in your images. I like to do this first so that I can focus totally just coloring and fussy cutting (if you have the die set for your images, even better).
First off, I used various images from the Cricut shop. I love using my machine for making projects, but I know that a log of you like to use dies for your paper crafts due to the nice cuts made.
Second, you can use your dies for this project as I didn't use any specific dies and you may have them all in your stash!
As you can see there are not a lot of dies involved. For the Sky printed background paper, you can simply use a paper trimmer to the desired size. As for the those that are using a die cutting machine, you will easily be able to find and use all of these items in your system library.
Once you have all of your cuts ready, start assembly.
** If you are making multiples, then make an assembly line by adding all your tapes, foam adhesives, etc first.
Glue the smaller heart to the larger heart with a slight turn to the heart. Not perfectly straight. Once you have those glue together, you will add foam tape to the back of the larger heart and a foam square to the back of the light pink heart. Because we used foam tape on the banner as well the foam square will help with the height variance. Once you have adhered the heart duo to the upper portion of the banner, you will add the pearl embellishment on the smaller heart.
For the sentiment I used one from the stamp set on a light pink strip, trimmed it down close to the sentiment and created a fishtail banner for it as well. I glued this down directly to the white background. Next I used foam squared to adhere the cupid and mail to the lower right of the card, just above the twine bow.
