Getting started with your card
Cut a piece of multi-purpose card to 11” x 5 ½” and score at 5 ½” to create a 5 ½” x 5 ½” card base.
Using the Charming Hearts Die Set, cut the inner detailed die and the top outer edge into the front of the card base along the diagonal.
Mat a 5” x 5” piece of patterned paper onto a 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” panel of pink card and glue this into the inside of the card base. Mat a right-angled triangle of patterned paper onto a slightly larger triangle of pink card and mat onto the front of the card.
Use a thin piece of pink ribbon to thread through the die-cut design, securing the ends on the reverse using red liner tape
Stamp your chosen sentiment onto a heart cut from multi-purpose card and, using foam pads, layer it onto a pink die-cut heart. Adhere to the card as shown.
Finish with die-cut butterflies and a bow in the top right-hand corner.
Creating your envelope
Cut a piece of patterned paper to 9” x 9”.
Align the two opposite points onto the 5” line of a scoreboard and score at 2 1/8”. Repeat this for all 4 sides of the envelope.
Cut triangles into where the lines cross in all four corners.
Apply red liner tape along the two edges as shown to secure the envelope.
