Lets Brighten it up a Bit!

Happy Wednesday!

Love is, Not just for Valentines day!  I got a message from Val in Spain last week saying she had already started her Valentines day cards for her daughters shop!  This got me thinking hearts, although this is early I had to make a card featuring a heart and I found this red felt die cut I had cut for a Christmas decoration but not used.

I know its strange to base a card around a small embellishment however I wanted it to blend in not stand out and so this card was born.



I started by hand cutting a 15cm x 125cm card blank in red PMD cardstock then added a cream layer.  Next I cut a square at 14 x 14 and die cut the first two dies from Spellbinders adorning Square die and placed a red layer underneath to show through.  next I die cut each of the other dies in the set in red and cream and layered them, using foam tape, on top of each other.

A strip of ribbon hold s a tag die cut (sorry not sure which set) then the heart then the centre piece from the tag set stamped with hearts and LOVE.

Enjoy...

  1. Hola John
    Fabulous card.Red and white is a great combo at any time. I've got to do some Valentine cards/decs for the charity shop for their Valentine jewellery display so wish me luck with that!
    Have a great day.

  3. Good morning John, I don't do Valentine cards unless asked but this would make a very suitable anniversary card as well. Nice design, best wishes Jackie

  4. Hi John. I so love this. You always have great ideas. I wouldn't dream of copying it outright but you might find something very similar in Lynn's shop in the next few days!!!
    By the way Ollies start a three day sale today so you can snap up the bargains tomorrow.
    Love Val x

    I love the understated heart set off against the squares. So elegant. I agree with an earlier comment about it being suitable for an anniversary.
