Valentine`s Card from Gerry

Hello Everyone!
Today I`d love to share with you
how I created a Valentine card using the gorgeous and so
beautiful "Love You Madly" collection.
{LOVE YOU MADLY} collection

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1:
  • Use the beautiful frame from the "Peek-A-Boos" and cut out the rectangle in the middle.


STEP 2:
  • Use 12"x12" white cardstock to outline the shape of the Peek-A-Boo Frame
  • Outline once again the frame but this time exactly above the other one.
  • You`ll fold the card in the middle (see photo below)
  • Ink the edges of the card, adhere the Peek-A-Boo on top
  • Optional: Hand-stitch a rectangle along the edges of the middle frame
  • Cut a rectangle from "Ampersand" pattern paper with size approx. 2.5" x 4.5" and adhere in the centre.


STEP 3:
  • Use your favourite die cut stencil (e.g. with swirls) and your favourite circle punch or die cut stencil. You need these die-cuts for your layering.
The beautiful dies are from...
{658946} Sizzix Thinlits Die - Decorative Border & Heart

{658605} Sizzix Thinlits Die - Doilies, Lovely
{658038} Sizzix Biz Die - Frame, Fancy

STEP 4:
  • Use the rubber stamps "Love you Madly" - Nr 1 & Nr 4 - and stamp on a piece of white cardstock. I used the same color ink as the inked edges of the card.
  • Once you are ready with the stamping cut the numbers 1 & 4 out
  • Outline the edges with a black pen (with a fine point)


STEP 5:
  • Now you can begin your layering.
  • Place the die-cuts on top of one another 
  • Choose your favorite Giant Rhinestone from "Love you Madly" collection and adhere in the centre of your top layer.

  • Use twine or string to make a bow
 I Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today!
Have a Glitzy weekend!
Hugs,
