Individual dies...one of my faves.  Some I just can't get enough of.  I want to figure out every little trick I can do with those dies.  Well in this case a set of 3 dies, Caprice Heart dies from Birch Press Designs.  These dies are perfectly symmetrical from front to back so you can actually layer them in the front and the back as well.  Really pretty for banners and ornaments for a Christmas tree.  I hope Birch Press comes out with more of these types of designs soon :)  But I digress from the task at hand, Valentine's cards for my spouse and daughter.  Here we go :)

Layers:

4 1/4" x 11" 100 lb white cover card stock folded in half
White, Pink, and Red (or any color you choose really) scraps to cut out 2 hearts of each color



This beautiful die set makes the perfect Valentine's Day card a breeze and is also wonderful when you want to just send your love to someone.  After you cut out the hearts in each of the colors then go about adhering each of the hearts together.  I start with the middle heart and put adhesive on its back and then adhere it to the bottom heart.  I just use simple dotted tape runner from tomboy but wet glue would work as well (be careful to not put too much of course).  I then put adhesive on the top heart and attach it to the middle middle on bottom hearts.

After the two hearts were completely assembled, I positioned them on my card front, which was already stamped with the Happy Valentine's Day stamp from Lawn Fawn's Celebration Scripty Sayings set, to assess how they would fit.  I then carefully picked them up being sure to hold them in position and then snipped the top corner of the bottom heart.  Some more Tombow dotted adhesive on the back and I adhered them to the front of the card carefully tucking the cut heart up next to the whole heart.

I added some interest to the card with some tiny hearts from Lawn Fawn's Happy Wedding set and used the whimsical words from the Hero Arts Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia on the inside to top off the love.

I made the card pictured below for my daughter.  I switched it up a bit so it would appeal to a 20 something year old.  She loved it!  Comment below if you would like to see instructions on this card too :)

  1. Really nice looking cards. I LOVE those heart dies! I really like the look of them stacked. And I think it is clever how you clipped the one to nestle the other into it. I'm sure your loved ones loved them.
