Valentine’s Day card #3 Using alphabet dies from Altenew

Hello everyone. Today I am here with my 3rd Valentine’s day card. When I come up with one idea for a card and start working on that project it usually happens that I come up with another similar idea to make another card. I am sure all crafty people will totally understand what I mean. It’s like a chain reaction.

Here’s my card for today.

Same kind of idea but this time I popped up the die cut word “LOVE” on foam squares.

I used pattern  paper that is perfect for Valentine theme to cut out the word using my Silhouette cameo.  I love how there are millions of things you can do with your Silhouette machine. It’s totally worth investing in one of those machines.

The word “YOU” is cut out using Altenew die. I bought that die a few months ago when they released it. I can’t tell you how many times I have used that die so far.  Seems like I reach out for those on every project that I start doing.

Just background is a pretty pattern paper that looks like a watercolor piece.

I thought It was a little plain and simple with just the words on the watercolor background. But it doesn’t hurt to add extra bling to any project. I had this dark silver washi tape that I bought at staples a while ago. I decided to use a strip on the washi in the bottom and a little flag on the top left corner.

And that finished my card.  I love the combinations of pale pink and hint of red from the pattern paper with the dark gray of the washi tape. And of course black and white to contrast the look. How do you guys like it?

Love

Valentine’s Day Card Featuring Altenew Flurries 3D Dies

Hello Everyone. Hope you are having a great January so far. Today I am here with my bright floral Valentine’s Day Cards.

When I saw this Rose Flurries 3D dies online on the blogs and instagram pictures, I had to have it. So i ordered this along with the Peony Dreams Die right away. They arrived last week. But I have been so busy with work and all , I finally got a chance to use it and turn it into beautiful cards just in time for Valentine’s Day.

I cut the word “Mine” using my Silhoutte Cameo. I thought a heart for the letter I would look cute. Then I cut a panel of 4 inches by 5 and 1/4th inches red cardstock aligning the word in the center of the panel.

Then I cut another panel of white cardstock the same size and adhered the letter cut outs on it. Stamped the word “Be” from one of the Simon Says Stamp stamp set.

I had already die cut some scraps of red shades of cardstock with my Rose Flurries 3D dies. It’s a layering die. What I love about these dies is that I can use up the tiniest scrap that I had been hoarding in my scrap stash. Adhered the layers together and amazingly beautiful roses were created. Did the same with the leaves.

I cut the main base of the card using Red cardstock. My card is 4 and the 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches in dimensions.

The final job was to assemble the parts together. Which I found was the most fun.

Finally this beautiful Valentine’s day card was done. Hope you guys will like it. Please coment below. I always love to hear what you have to say.

Love

Jyoti
