I created 2 Valentine’s cards for this month’s hop.  One is using a pattern from the CTMH wishes book and the other is using Pinterest for inspiration.

Supplies used:

The first card uses the Wishes: Lucky Layers pattern.  The wishes book give you a template, the measurements of each piece of paper used and a sample of a card.  Easy peeasy!

On the front of this card I made a rosette or yo-yo.  I made this with a 12 x 1/2 inch strip on paper.  I scored the paper every 1/4″. and folded the paper like a fan.  Using liquid glass to secure the center.

The heart on the top part of the card were folded in half slightly and a line of liquid down the fold to adhere them to the card base.  This gives the hearts a 3D look.

The second card was inspire from a few pinterest posts.  The “You & Me” flag was taken from the zip strip on the top of the papers.  These zip strips are great for cards!
