VIDEO: Masculine Valentines
By Shari Carroll

Create quick Valentine cards for the men in your life!

  1. Start by cutting an 8.5" x 11" piece of Charcoal layering paper to measure 4.25" x 11".
  2. Score the paper at the 1.5" and 7" marks.
  3. Use a bone folder to press the folds.
  4. Use a tape runner to affix the small flap to the card leaving room to insert a gift card.
  5. Use the Carbonated Background stamp with Charcoal ink to stamp the card.
  6. Cut a 1" strip of black cardstock, affix to the card.
  7. Die cut the heart using a die cut machine and Renaissance Heart (DI063) from white cardstock.
  8. Use a glue stick to adhere book text to cardstock. Use a heart die to cut out shape. Color the heart using Pale Tomato ink with a sponge dauber. Mount the heart to the card using a foam square.
  9. Add a small amount of adhesive to the inside to hold a gift card in place.
