Will You Be My Valentine?

Hello, everyone!

It's Nancy here with a new project! 
Today I'm sharing a fun Valentine Card:

Here's how I made it:

I began by cutting the Pink Glitter Chipboard down to A2 size.
I then adhered it to an A2 white card base.

Next, I cut a piece of pink cardstock just a teensy bit smaller than A2.
I used the Heartbeat Punch across the top of the cardstock, 
reserving some of the punched out hearts.

I adhered the cardstock in place over the Glitter card.

In the photo below you can see where I positioned the punched out hearts into the open spaces.
I've also stamped the XO border along the bottom of the card, 
and the sentiment in the center of the card.

The Glitter is so pretty!

Here's a closer look at where I added the punched hearts into the open spaces.
I used some Tear Drops to create some shiny red hearts on my card.

Then I added some random clear Dew Drops to some of the O's in the stamped border.

Here's one final look at the finished card:

Other Materials Used:
Paper: AC - Textured Cardstock;
Punch: Martha Stewart - Heartbeat Punch;
Ink: Stampin' Up - Melon Mambo;
Stamp: Simon Says Stamp - Paper Hug Stamp.

Glitzy Valentine's Day Card

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a quick Valentine's Day Card.

This is a standard A2 card with a lot of glitz and not so much work. Let's get started.

First, let's gather our supplies. Then, die cut 2 hearts I used an oldie but a goodie the Double Heart by Sizzix. I die cut them from the Glitter Chipboard. I only used the outer heart - saved the inner hearts for a later project. Next, I trimmed the ephemera rose from the card.

Then, I figured out my placement on the card front panel. I decided to place the rose and hearts towards the top left. I then trimmed the card front panel to 4" x 5-1/4" I adhered the card front to a medium purple cardstock all the way to the left leave a pop of color on the right.

Next, I add the Dew Drops in the Purple Glitter Chipboard heart. I started with the Pearlescent Diamond at the bottom of the heart, then I added the shiny Fushcia Dew Drops 3 in total, next I filled the remaining space of the heart with Pearlescent Dew Drops. I then adhered the Pink Glitter heart just above the Purple heart. I left it unfilled so it would give a nice light feeling.

Next, I stamped the sentiment onto Light Pink cardstock and adhered it with a bit of low profile foam adhesive. For a finishing touch, I added 2Pearlescent Dew Drops and 1 Translucent Purple Diamond Dew Drop next to the sentiment. I adhered the front panel to the card base and the card is complete.

Supplies Used:

Sun Shower Tear Drops

Black/White/Silver Dew Drops

Precious Boy Diamond Dew Drops

Shimmer Diamond Dew Drops

Pink Glitter Chipboard

Plum Purple Glitter Chipboard

Saffron Cards

Recollections Brand: Heavy Weight Cardstock in
 Cream, Light Pink and Medium Purple
