Valentine's Day

We are only just getting over Christmas and New Year and thoughts are turning to Valentines day
It may be a bit early for some to be thinking of this now but for some Crafters they will already be making Valentine Cards

This card I have made combines one of this weeks New Papers from Free Craft Downloads with one of the Older ones on there and the Decoupage sheet I have put in the Decoupage and Backing Sheets (made by forum members) section in the  Gallery on there

I used
1 Sheet A4 white card
1 Sheet A4 Matt  photo paper
1 "love" fabric embellishment
2 Gold heart embellishments
Red alphabet peel offs
4 Heart corner peel offs (coloured with pens)
Double sided tape
Silicone Glue
1 A5 size piece of acetate
Be mine teddy decoupage
Cupid - Pink (light) backing paper
Valentines day13 backing paper
A4  side heart Template

 I printed the "Valentines day" backing paper on the A4 sheet of White card, I then ran this back through the printer and printed the A4 Heart template on the reverse (white) side
I cut around the edges and around the Heart shapes on the sides

 I printed the cupid backing paper on the A4 sheet of white paper
I cut this to fit the central inside section of the card.
I attached it with Double sided tape and trimmed the edges

This is how the card looks when folded  it opens as a gatefold card  (A5 size)

Behind the cut heart part on the front of the card I have added some acetate
and at the top of the card I have put a gold fabric "Love" embellishment
which is stuck to the left hand side of the card only (Letters L&O)

This is the inside of the card - I stuck the teddy decoupage down with double sided tape so that when the front is colsed over the design is in the centre of the heart
I added some heart corner peel offs which were coloured red with peel off pens

This is how the finished card looks
I stuck the 2 gold hearts to the bottom front "inner" corners
As an example I added ME and YOU red peel offs on to the acetate You could add a persons name there if you wishe  or just leave blank

I decided to go with a softer pink look for this card rather than the "Bright Red" a lot of Valentine cards are
Hope you like it
