Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

Nathalie DeSousa with you today with my first blog post as part of the SCT Design Team, and right on time to celebrate Valentine’s Day.  There is nothing sweeter than creating a card for your loved ones, especially when they come together in a short amount of time.

For this card, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the background, using the “heart is full background” JustNick Studio cut file.  Two cutouts were created from white cardstock and the third one from gold shimmer white cardstock.  These were glued together (with the shimmer cardstock as the top layer) to form a dimensional die cut.   Each heart was then backed with papers from the Kissing Booth collection from Simple Stories, and then a piece of vellum was glued to the bottom of the die cut.

I used Pop Dots under some of the heart to attach it to a piece of white cardstock.   To pop the colours of the papers,  a piece of paper from the Kissing Booth collection (cut slightly larger to frame the cardstock) was layered between the front panel and a base card created to fit the front design.

A simple sentiment was then added to the bottom of the heart background (from the Kissing Booth Sticker sheet) along with a small puffy heart.  To finish the card,  a few shimmer white sequins were added, and then I used my envelope punch to create a matching envelope for the card.
