I’m really trying to get ahead of the game with my Valentines this year. Usually it’s my husband’s card that gets done at the very last minute. So this year, his is among the first…because he does deserve to be FIRST!
Today’s card is a slimline that measures 8″ x 3 1/2″, so it would be cut at 8″ x 7″ and scored at 3 1/2″. I finally cut into the pretty SU Tartan Foil paper that I’ve had for some time now. I think the colors and patterns are perfect for a masculine card. I used a couple of heart punches for the layered hearts. They’re popped up with dimensionals on a panel that was embossed using the SU Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Because of the length, I had to run it through twice.
The sentiment is from a Simon Says Kit and is heat embossed on Lost Lagoon card stock.
For my slimline cards, I create my own envelopes. I use 32lb cardstock as it’s just a little heavier that regular copy paper but not as heavy as regular cardstock. I’ve created a tutorial HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your week is going well. We’re finally seeing some of our snow melt after last week’s two snowfalls and this little girl is pretty happy about that…Olive was not impressed with her first introduction to snow!
