Chic Valentines Card

Good Evening All.  Just crafting away while my hubby is out of town and decided to work on a card for him for Valentines Day.  It is only right around the corner.  I wanted to make something adult and sophisticated so I decided to go with a black and white card with a touch of red.  I based the card on black and white but knew that I wanted to use a small scrap of deep red velvet paper that I had.  After scouring through my scrap box I finally found it and sized the card based on how big a heart I could cut out of the scrap.  Here it is:

Card Recipe:

  • Base card is 5" x 5" in black
  • Background paper is 4.5" x 4.5" from DCWV Bella Armoire stack
  • Heart is 3" cut from Gypsy Wanderings
  • The tag is 2.5" x 2.5" from Cricut Ultimate Creative Series Sampler image #27 Bonus 1
  • Sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Love-alicious with red embossing powder
  • I used the crop-a-dial to do the eyelets with red twine from Michaels
 The tag is really decorative but kinda hard to see in the photo.  I really matches the swirls on the paper.  I am entering this in challenge #95 over at the Fantabulous Cricut blog.  The challenge is to use a tag other than a circle.  Hope you enjoy and inspires a little love in all of you.  Have a great evening.


  1. Such a beautiful card! I wanted to also answer your question you left of the FCCB Quick Tip Tuesday about embossing fabric with the Cuttlebug. I actually have both and don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Good luck.

  2. This is so pretty! Love the big heart! Stunning. Thanks for creating with us at FCCB this week :)
