Today I’ll show you how to make envelopes. Yesterday I gave you all the details about this heart-shaped valentine. Today it’s all about making the envelope that’s perfect for your special card. NOTE: This envelope is not a standard size. Please see measurements below.
The trick is not only to make the envelope but to make the envelope so that your pattern on your paper is heading the right direction! For example, if I just cut a square from the papers pictured above and placed my diagonal score lines to create my envelopes, the hearts would be on the diagonal instead of facing up. Oh, dear. That won’t do.
Of course on the flap the pattern will be necessarily upside down, but that’s ok. 😉 The front is what matters. Check out the video tutorial on how to create this custom envelope.
On today’s video tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how you can make this heart-shaped valentine. I used the Heart Collections framelit dies to snip out this little wonder that opens just like a card. Super fun!
In tomorrow’s post and video tutorial, I’ll show you how to create the matching envelope that is just the perfect size for this little number.
I am so excited about this Jar of Hearts valentine card made with the outline heart from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and, of course, the Perfectly Preserved jar stamp with the coordinating Cannery Set framelit dies.
The title of this post reminds me of the Wheel of Fortune category – is it called ‘before and after’? Jar of Hearts and Hearts a Flutter to make Jar of Hearts a Flutter.
Here’s another valentine project video for you! In the video I explain how I made the jar and the chalkboard background for this card. Enjoy! The supply list is below.
More clean and simple collage stamping in this greeting card created with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden stamp and flowers die bundle and the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous set available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product purchase.
I stamped this on yummy Shimmery White cardstock. It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely, you can see the shimmer! And using the framelit dies made masking and layering these flowers super easy. (You can watch the video below to see how!)
I tried stamping the black sentiment directly over the flowers, but it didn’t show up the way I liked so I stamped it on a piece of vellum to layer over the top. Using the vellum allowed the thought to stand out more without completely covering the flower design. A perfect solution!
I love the crossword puzzle look in the Cross My Heart stamp and was anxious to make a simple valentine card with the I love you puzzle and the adorable little elephants!
Here’s another Valentine card video tutorial! (If you can’t see the video in your email or feed, just click to the post to view.) A few years ago our dog chewed up the end of my heat tool, but the darn thing keeps working so I keep using it. I need it to stop working because I need a good excuse to buy the new heat tool, which is AWESOME.
Using the heart from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper made this project extra special and easy.
And embossing the I Love You on the Pink Pirouette cardstock gives it a crisp, clean look.
