Valentine Card and Envelope

Here is a Valentine card.  I used printed cork, burlap and did some machine sewing around the edge of the card.  I did a lot of experimenting on this card but it turned out pretty cool.  Valentine Card SuppliesHere is a photo of some of the supplies you’ll need.  Any kind of heart shape will work for this card.  You’ll also need a corner rounder, a border punch, ink and stamp of choice (I used Close to my Heart chocolate ink and stamp set D1283 Say it in Style).

I put it all together then added some Cotton Candy Stickles on the arrow.Completed Valentine CardThen I made a custom envelope to go with the card.

Making the Envelope on the Punch BoardI used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board to make my envelope but you can also use the Martha Stewart score board as well (the large one that has the envelope triangle on the back).

Putting the Envelope TogetherI added a liner to my envelope because it’s so easy to add one when you’re making an envelope.
