It doesn't feel like 2 minutes since the last Valentine's Day - how the past 12 months have flown!
Here I share with you how I created this super cute heart-filled envelope box card using some fabulous pink cardstock. And you know how much I love a 3D folding card that actually folds flat so that it can be posted, and this is no exception.
Combined with the awesome pink glitter and non-shed glitter this card is sure to be a winner with a loved one on St Valentine's Day.
To create this card you will need:
- Flamingo Pink Non-Shedding Glitter Card 285gsm
- Cerise Pink Glitter Card 220gsm
- Pink Plain Card 290gsm
- Woodstock Malva Card 285gsm
- Bianco Artico Nettuno Linen Effect Card 280gsm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 240ml
- Stick it! 3D Foam Dots (152 pcs)
You will also need:
- A cutting machine such as a Cricut or a Silhouette
- The envelope box digital cutting file '3D Valentine Project Bundle' from Lori Whitlock
- A Valentine's Day sentiment stamp - I used 'Happy Valentine's Day' from The Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Things/Talk stamp set.
- Ink for stamping the sentiment
Let's get started!
1. To create this box card you will first need to purchase the '3D Valentine Project Bundle' digital cutting file from www.loriwhitlock.co.uk. They often have up to 30% discounts if you subscribe to their newsletters. I took advantage of one to purchase this bundle.
2. Upload the file to Design Space for the Cricut or whatever software is used for your particular cutting machine.
3. Decide which colours you want your heart and envelope box to be and change in your design software. I chose 2 pink shades in the plain card and 2 shades in the glitter cardstock, together with the white card for the insert and the envelope liner.
4. Cut out all pieces using your machine and reinforce any score lines with a bone folder.
5. Assemble all the pieces as per the layout, diagram included with the download. I used a combination of wet glue and 3D foam dots to provide even more dimension.
6. Stamp your sentiment and adhere to your card.
And there you have it, a pretty-in-pink Valentine's Day 3D Envelope Box card, overflowing with love hearts.
