Hey Rabbit Hole Crafters! Justin here, and I’m here with a fun traditional Valentine’s Day project!
This card uses solely the Love You More set, but only uses the, what I call, scene building images! This post is also being featured on The Rabbit Hole Designs Blog today as well! Be sure to head over there and give them some love!
I was looking at this card and knew that it was the set I wanted to use to create a Valentine’s Day project, but didn’t know which images I wanted to use. This set comes with 2 really cute pairings of a boy and girl couple, but what really inspired me was the sentiment “You Feel Like Home To Me”. Since the set included images of houses, I knew that was the direction I was going to go.
First, I colored up a handful of houses and clouds with Copic Markers, alternating between a few different Red and Pink groupings I had come up with. I then cut all of the images out using my Scan and Cut.
Note: for images that are generally white, I color them up with a super light/diluted color. For these clouds, I took a super light pink marker and just went around one side’s edges. You can also blend this out with a colorless marker if you deem fit.
I die cut a “Slightly Smaller Than A2”-sized stitched rectangle on white cardstock and again on black cardstock. I took my black cardstock panel, marked where I wanted my grounding for the house to be, and die cut a stitched curved edge on the panel. Then an A2-sized rectangle on red cardstock.
I took the white panel and ink blended a background. From the bottom up, I used a light pink, bright pink, and then a lighter red to create an ombré Valentine’s Day appropriate sky.
I adhered my black stitched grounding section to the bottom of the ink blended panel. I then laid out how I wanted my houses to be layered, having some houses in front of others to create a little bit of depth, and adhered them. I also adhered my clouds, pairing some of them up, and adhered them with foam tape to raise them off the paper a bit.
I cut two very thin strips of black cardstock and heat embossed one sentiment on each, “You Feel Like Home To Me” and “Happy Valentine’s Day”. I then adhered those, one sentiment a bit removed and on top of the other, with foam tape in the top left section of my card.
I wanted a little bit of detail on the bottom of my card, so I had some red and white twine on my desk. I wrapped the twine along the bottom edge of my card and tied a bow. Fun tip, when using string to create a bow, sometimes it’s hard to get a taught string (i.e. sometimes part of the string on the front is droopy). Remember, nobody is going to see the underneath of your panels, so they don’t have to look perfect. I sometimes pull the strings from the back so they look taught on the front. I then take a piece of washi tape to the back to hold the string in place! And see, you’d never really know unless I told you!
I took some red and silver sequins that have been included in past The Rabbit Hole Designs orders and adhered them to my card. I finished by mounting my scene panel to my red A2 panel, and then mounting the entire piece to an A2 card base that is folded on the top edge! And that’s how I made my Valentine’s Day Card
I used the following products to create this project:
