Sweet Love Card with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a lovely and easy Valentine's Day card or just a love card.

I only used dies and a bit of ink to create this card - which makes it easy to make multiples if needed.

Here's the card I created.

I gathered all the dies, cardstock and specialty paper. I die cut all the components for the card. 

I then used Distress Oxide ink in Bundled Sage to color the stems of the blooms. Next, I used Distress Oxide in Tattered Rose for the buds.

I trimmed one of the buds off the stem. I will use this stem for my hearts. 
I  adhered the hearts to the stem.
Next, I adhered the lattice to the pink cardstock panel.
 Now, I am ready to adhere the blooms to the panel.

I start by tucking the first bloom at the bottom left of the panel. Then I follow with the heart buds and then I finally trim and tuck the last bloom.

Next, I adhered the sentiments die cuts to the top right-hand corner of the panel. I then adhered the card front panel to the card base.

For finishing touches, I adhered a few Jewels in red, pink and white.
Now, the card is complete.

I Love You Card with White Rose Crafts LLC

 Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a card inspired by Australia.
White Rose Crafts Gallery FB Group is doing a fundraiser for all the Firefighters, Families and Animals affected by the wild fires.

I stamped and cut out all the images. I die cut a heart and stamped my sentiment on it. I also trimmed a piece of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper to 4"-1/8" 5"-1/8" so I would have a small white frame around the pattern paper.

I then adhered the bamboo leaves around the heart leaving a few gaps for the flowers and hearts. Next, I added the flowers and hearts.
I adhered the pattern paper to my card base. Then, I used some foam tape to adhere the heart and Koala to the card front.


For some finishing touches, I adhered some sequins in the right top corner and left bottom corner.

Valentine's Day Heart Self Closing Bag and Mini Card with Rinea

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a fun Valentine's Day project
 featuring Rinea Love Foiled Paper Variety Pack
along with a cut file from Simply Crafty SVG

Materials Used
Xyron Creative Station Lite Adhesive
Xyron Mega Runner Adhesive
Brother Scan n Cut Machine
Maker's Movement Notes of Love Stamp Set
Imagine Crafts/Tsukeniko Memento Dew Drop Ink: Rose Bud
Recollection Brand 65lb Cardstock: Pink and White

Let's get started!

I gathered all the materials. I die cut the tote bag using my Brother Scan n Cut. 

Tote Bag

I ran all the pieces that I cut from the Rinea Starstruck Fuchsia/Fuchsia Foil Paper,
Rinea Starstruck Blush/Blush Foil PaperRinea Glossy Blush/Gold Foil Paper through the 
Xyron Creative Station Lite. 

Next, I layered the Rinea Starstruck Fuchsia/Fuchsia Foil Paper triangle with heart cut out onto
 the Rinea Glossy Blush/Gold Foil Paper triangle with heart cut out.
Then, I layered the triangles onto the tote bag.

Next, I added the handle layers and side panels of Rinea Glossy Blush/Gold Foil Paper to the tote bag. 

Then, I ran some Xyron Mega Runner on the side tab of the tote and pressed the two sides together.

Next, I closed the bottom of the tote. Start with the forked tab push it down. Next, the two side tabs, followed by the cone-shaped tab. No need to adhere these tabs.  
This part is optional.
I saved a few of the hearts that cut out from the front panels. 
I decorated the side panels with one heart.
 To open the tote all you do is squeeze the ends.

Your Valentine's Day Tote Bag is Complete!

Mini Card

I cut a piece of 65lb white cardstock into a 3"x3" square. 
I then scored it in the middle and folded it. This will be the card base.

Next, I added a die-cut panel of Rinea Starstruck Blush/Blush Foil Paper to the card base. 

Then, I layered a Rinea Starstruck Fuchsia/Fuchsia Foil Paper heart onto a Pink cardstock heart. I added some low profile foam adhesive to the back of the heart and press it onto the  die-cut panel of Rinea Starstruck Blush/Blush Foil Paper

Next, I stamped the sentiment onto the card.
I used Maker's Movement Note of Love stamp set and
Imagine Crafts/Tsukeniko Memento Dew Drop ink in Rose Bud.

Now, the mini card is complete!

You can fill your tote bag with candy, cookies or a small gift. 
You can attach the card with adhesive or a clip.
