It’s that time again! Time for Valentine’s Day cards to start appearing. Very soon I’ll be glued to my craft table (no pun intended!) making a ton of Valentine’s Day cards for my local flower shop to sell.
Today I thought I’d make a non-traditional card using some of the new Butterfly Garden dsp.
I started with a yellow cardbase, then taking a piece of dsp, I cut it slightly narrower than the cardbase as I wanted to add a border. I used some scrap paper from the Butterfly Garden collection for that. I then glued both pieces down.
Taking the same yellow cardstock, I foiled the greeting using silver heat activated foil and the You & Me Hotfoil Stamp, keeping the greeting to one side.
I then cut it out using a scalloped heart die, and added the heart to the base, overlapping off the card, which I would then cut off the excess. (See below)
Using a scrap piece of cardstock, I cut out a small yellow heart. I also cut out a silver arrow, which I layed across the secured heart, then added Glossy Accents over the top of both.
And that was my card done.

CO725454 – Le Petit Jardin – Petit Floral Edge Die
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my creation!
Your card is so beautiful with the offset heart design and the non-traditional colors for a Valentine. The die cut edging is fantastic too as is the butterfly pattern papers. This would be a great anniversary card design too.

Thanks so much, Verna. Yes, you could easily use it for an Anniversary card.
Since I bought the Petit Floral Edge Die (just before Christmas) I’ve used it a ton. It is so beautiful, and you can have a lot peeking through, or much more, and it has a totally different appearance.
