Hi crafty friends! Simon Hurley has released new products that are just perfect for Valentine’s Day. In today’s card, I’ll be using the new Big Hugs stamps and dies and the Happy Heart Layering stencil. These two are great for any Valentine’s Day crafty projects like bookmarks, cards, gift tags, and more. I really enjoyed making today’s card, and I hope it gives you inspiration to do something fun and creative today!
Step 1: Trim a front panel piece for an A2 car base out of Stark White cardstock measuring 5¼” x 4”. Then, use one of the layers from the Happy Hearts stencil set to ink the hearts using Rosy Cheeks ink.
Step 2: Next, use the other layer from the Happy Hearts stencil set and the Love Struck Lunar Paste to add dimension to the background. Then, leave aside to dry.
Step 3: Once the background has dried, ink the entire background with Piggyback ink.
Step 4: Use a square nested die and place it in the middle of the background. Next, use a die cutting machine to make the die cut.
Step 5: Next, trim a piece out of Dina Wakley Media Transparencies and glue it to the back of the background to cover the opening.
Step 6: Use two small plastic cups to mix some Mica Flakes. In one cup, add a couple drops of Pink Sherbet alcohol ink. In the other cup, add a couple drops of Pearls Intrigue. Then, use a popsicle stick to mix the Mica Flakes and alcohol inks together.
Step 7: On the A2 card base, ink blend some Minty Fresh ink where the opening of the background will go. Then, place the mica flakes on the inked background.
Step 8: Add foam adhesive to the front panel piece and tape it to the card base.
Step 9: On a separate piece of Stark White Cardstock, stamp the pug image using Jet Black archival ink. Next, heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Step 10: Use a brush and Love Struck ink to color the dog’s tongue.
Step 11: Use the coordinating dies from the Big Hugs set to die cut the pug. Die cut extra pieces then glue them together to add dimension. Next, glue it on the transparency window.
Step 12: Heat emboss one of the sentiments from the Big Hugs stamp set on Tim Holtz Distress Black Heavystock using white super fine detail embossing powder. Then, trim the sentiment to fit the card, and add foam adhesive applied under the pug image.
Step 13: Next, pair the card with a complimentary envelope. Now it’s ready to be sent to a loved one on Valentine’s Day!
