Today, we would like to welcome designer Carla Peicheff to the blog to share a FABULOUS Valentine’s Day card tutorial with us. Here is her tutorial:
Hi Everyone! Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I’m going to show you how to make a quick and easy card for anyone on your list this February 14th!
Now…let’s get started, shall we?
Cut your main piece of cardstock to 4 ¾ x 4 ¾” and adhere to card base.
Cut 4 squares of patterned paper to fit; approx 2 ¼” each pc. I made my squares 4 different sizes, which is another option to be a little unique. Adhere to card.
Stitch around 4 squares of patterned paper. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can hand stitch, pierce holes along the edges, distress, or just leave it as is.
Layer your smaller blossom over the larger button; adhere with a glue dot. Insert embroidery thread through button, tie knot in back, and adhere to blossom using glue dot.
Adhere chipboard letters as shown; with the L and O on top 2 squares, and the V and E, on the bottom 2 squares. Adhere the blossom to the side of the “V” and the heart on the right hand side of the O.
Adhere the final touch of bling on sides of flower, and at the end of the heart.
And that’s all there is to it! I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! If you try out my card, I’d love to see! Please link me up from either here or my blog so I can take a peek and leave a comment!
Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day everyone!
