Card Tutorial – Valentine’s Day using Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things

It’s a bright and sunny Sunday here in Williamsburg. The word SUNday is so fitting! (It took me so long to finish this darn post that now it’s Monday! Whoops!) We’re just nine days away from Valentine’s Day, so I’ve made another Valentine’s Day card to share. This one is a little ‘punny,’ which I absolutely love.

I started this silly card by stamping a background with Lawn Fawn’s ‘Science of Love’ stamp set. I used the calculator, book, a few vials or beakers, and some of the sweet little hearts. I started with the biggest images, then worked my way down to the smaller images to fill in the gaps. After the background was stamped the way I wanted it, I cut it using the stitched rectangles die, also from Lawn Fawn. Then I went to town with the ‘Pumice Stone’ Distress Ink. I think it turned out pretty cool and gave it a neat grey scale sort of feel.

I matted my stamped background on a piece of black cardstock, then mounted that with a piece of foam to a white A2 card base. Then, I used a piece of red scrap paper and heat embossed my sentiment from ‘Science of Love’ with white embossing powder. I cut a little banner tail to give it a finished look.

Next, I stamped, copic colored, and die cut the little girl and dresser images from the ‘Our Story’ stamp and die set from My Favorite Things. So cute!! I also stamped and colored one of the beakers from the Lawn Fawn set and then fussy cut it (I absolutely HATE fussy cutting haha). Once I had them all colored, I attached foam adhesive to the backs and adhered them, along with the sentiment, to my card front.

Then, I decided the card needed a little bit of sparkle, so I added some small red sequins I had on hand. I thought it made it look like it was bubbling or smoking up out of the beaker, sort of like the girl was brewing up some sort of love potion! Super cute to tie it all together with the chemistry sentiment.

I hope you like the card! Have you been making anything for Valentine’s Day? Link me your creations in the comments so I can check them out!

Big hugs!
