Valentines Card using Stacked With Love DSP Stack


I hope everyone is having a lovely Valentines Day! 


My husband surprised me with some lovely presents, I am very thankful to have such a thoughtful husband. I received a lovely personalised frame noting all of the key dates since we got together, a 
red rose and a box of Malteasers.




Here are the presents that I gave to my husband. A handmade Valentines card using techniques I have never used before and a handmade Valentines gift bag which contained a wooden star and also 2 heart cookies which I bought from Not on the High Street.



I used the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack to decorate the front of the card and used the Hello You Thinlits die to add 'Happy' to the front of the card along with 'Valentine's Day' which I stamped in Versamark Ink and covered Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then set the Embossing powder my with my heat gun and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. You can find a similar stamp in the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.


I got the idea for the inside of this card from watching my upline, Michelle Lasts Youtube video tutorials. It's difficult to see in the photo below that this card is actually 3D when opened. The photo to the right shows you that the base of the card has two layers. The card folds flat when the card is closed (it's so clever!) Click here to see Michelle's video tutorial on how to make this 3D card.

I cut out the heart using the heart die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set and at the same time created the embossed border. The technique is really straight forward. Click here to watch Michelle's tutorial on how to make the embossed border.


I used the Real Red Brights Designer Series Paper which was left over from the Valentines Gift Bag in my previous post to line the first layer. This is so that you see the lovely paper where you have cut out the heart shape.




I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects today. Have a great weekend! and if you want to order any of these products, please go to my online shop by clicking on the pictures below.
