Rustic Valentine's card tutorial

Hello. and thank you so so much for trusting me! I know you wouldn't be here now visiting my blog if you didn't believe I would post something nice eventually

So here it is - I had a go at rustic valentine's card, as this is obviously my favourite style.

So today I am going to show you how I made this card, so that you can still do it yourself for that someone special in your life!

here is what you need:
brown kraft card
patterned paper/vellum
love sentiment die
ribbon, lace, jute string
chalk marker
heart die cutter
glue pen, hot glue gun, dimensionals, snail adhesive
You can use any colour card here for the base, as well as any other shape die, sentiments etc depending what occasion you are making the card for. Here is how I made it:
I cut my kraft card to a 6x6 size, and using a tape runner/snail adhesive I glued vellum paper to my card base. I cut the vellum a little bit smaller than 6x6

next, I cut a piece of kraft card measuring about 5" 3/4 x 5" 3/4 and cut out a heart shape in the middle. I simply placed the heart die cutter on the middle of the paper and run it through my big shot machine.
Then, using a ruler and chalk marker I drew lines along the edges to create a frame.
Using some dimentionals or sticky foam pads if you prefer i glued the card onto my card base. That gave me a bit of 3D effect.

All i had to do now is attach a bow and a sentiment. I made a couple of bows but chose smaller one to make sure my card fits perfectly in an envelope.

I used hot glue gun to attach the bow to my card. I guess you could use some large glue dots but hot glue will make sure the bows will stay in place!!

and here it is:
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
Thanks very much for your visit.
