You Melt My Heart

Hello BPM Fans! Betty here with a cute Valentine's Day card. January seemed to have just whizzed by and Valentine's Day is just two weeks away! Here is an adorable, fun, and quick card you can make for Valentine's Day or for any occasion. I used this cute stamp from Blank Page Muse Art Rubber Stamps called Running Stitch, You Melt My Heart designed by Stephanie Eaton, to make this 6"x6" card.

February 10th will start the new challenge with the theme of "Romance."

  • Blank Page Muse Art Rubber Stamp: Running Stitch, You Melt My Heart designed by Stephanie Eaton
  • White cardstock to stamp image
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Stamping block or positioner
  • Coloring medium of choice (I used Copic markers)
  • Scissors
  • White card base, 6" x 6"
  • 1 Solid 6" x 6" cardstock (I found some in my stash that already had edges distressed)
  • 1 patterned paper, 5-3/4" x 5-3/4"
  • 1 patterned paper, 5-3/4"W x 2-1/2"H. Save some of this paper to make some flags as embellishments.
  • Chipboard
  • Various sized heart-shaped dies or punches. One heart should be at least 2"x2" so the sentiment will fit. Cut 5 hearts for card front (optional: cut 2 for inside of card)
  • Distress ink: Barn door, Vintage Photo, and Black Soot
  • Distress ink applicator and brush
  • Flag Die, Banner Die, or Scissors & Paper Trimmer to cut flag embellishments
  • Foam squares/dots/tape
  • Your favorite adhesive
  • Twine: Red, Black, Rust -approximately 20" of each
  • Enamel dots
  • Using a stamp block or stamp positioner, stamp your image onto white cardstock.
  • Color your image and fussy cut with scissors. 
  • Using the Vintage Photo and blending brush, ink the edges.

  • Die cut hearts out of chipboard. 

  • Using the Barn Door Distress Ink, swipe the pad over the hearts to achieve a distressed wood look. Using the Vintage Photo Distress Ink, swipe only the edges of the hearts. 

  • Using a stamp block or stamp positioner, stamp the words "You melt my heart" onto the large heart.

  • Using the Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Inks, distress the edges of all your patterned paper with a blending tool.

  •  Adhere the mat and patterned papers onto the card base.

  • Add foam squares/dots/tape to the colored image and adhere to the card.

  • Assemble and adhere the hearts. Add the twine and tie a knot, then a bow to secure it. Using a flag, banner die, or paper trimmer & scissors, cut a couple of flags to use as embellishments. Add enamel dots.  

  • Adhere the hearts to the inside of the card on the bottom right corner (this is optional).

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you give this card a try. 
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! ~Betty~
