Be My Valentine Series - Day 5 - Minimal Cards



Today's cards use minimal supplies, minimal time and mini stamp sets to help you send big love!  Each of these cards uses the following supplies:

It only took about 10 minutes to create each card; I definitely became faster as I went too!  

  1. Place your sentiment stamp on an acrylic block and fill the white card panel, using the lighter of the two ink colors, leave room in between the sentiments for a cute heart!
  2. Stamp your hearts in between each sentiment with the darker ink color
  3. Adhere your card front to the matching card base.
  4. Place your circle die on the darker piece of cardstock and tape in place, now center your heart die inside the circle and tape in place, run through your die cutting machine!
  5. Remove just the circle die from the darker paper and place on your lighter paper and cut one circle
  6. Place the lighter circle on the adhesive sheet, rub well to transfer the adhesive and remove the cover sheet exposing the adhesive, adhere the darker circle with the heart on top, your negative heart shape should now be sticky!  
  7. Place a pinch of glitter inside the heart and burnish it onto the adhesive with your finger, brush off any excess with a large dry paintbrush.
  8. Using foam tape, or squares, attach the circle in the middle of the card front.
  9. Stamp your images and color.  Cut your images and adhere to the card front overlapping the circle edges.
  10. If you want to place an epoxy heart in the center of the glittery heart!
