Milagros Rivera shares a clever way to use leftover Dylusions Christmas Image Sheets to create these charming Valentine's Day Cards.


Instructions 

 

I love when a product transitions from one season to the next and I can take advantage of every piece. I was able to create three Valentine's Day cards with remnants of my Christmas Image Sheets. Yup, I said Christmas in the same sentence as Valentine's. Here I show you how to make the most of your Dylusions treasures! 
 

 

Dylusions Love is in the Air Valentine Card 1

Card 1, With Love 

 

 
 Dylusions Love is in the Air Valentine Cards Step 1

Step 1: Use your Dylusions The Classics Journal to sneak paper to create an A2 sized card, fold in half. They will be top folded because I’m using a vertical journal. 


This is how the inspiration came. I love the Grandkids Silhouette Stencils & Masks for so many reasons, they’re absolutely adorable and they also fit inside the heart stencil!

Step 2: Use the black pages of the journal to cut the silhouettes.

Dylusions Love is in the Air Valentine Cards Step 13 
Step 13: Bear with me the craziness of using jolly to create the word love, I sneaked the e from Merry from the previous card and flipped jolly to use the L O and twist the J into a V. To unite them I mimicked the black of the e to fill the other letters 

 

 
 Dylusions Love is in the Air Valentine Cards Step 14

Step 14: I gave the love bird a heart to carry from one of the background papers and painted it with Cherry Pie.  

 

 

Dylusions Love is in the Air Valentine Cards Step 15

Step 15: To finish the petals I used the Quilt It Stencil with a gel pen.
