Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in red cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – White (5-1/4″ x 4″)
  • Cardstock – Lime Green (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″)

Cut a piece of Masking Magic to 5-1/4″ x 4″. Place the heart die on it towards the top and run through the Big Shot. Keep the heart die and add it to your masking stash.

Place the stencil over the piece of white cardstock. Stamp the Mini Heart of Hearts in purple ink, the Mini To My Valentine in red ink, and the the Mini Heart with Arrow in pink ink.

On a scrap piece of Masking Magic stamp 5 each of the hearts and cut out.

With tweezers, apply those masks to the most prominent and whole images that you stamped in your stencil.

Stamp the Mini Solid Saponaria in lime green ink all over the stencil area, being sure to stamp off all the way around the stencil.

With a cloth, remove any ink that may be sitting on the heart stencil so that you don’t spread it in the next step. Brush on Pear Tart ink all along the edge of the stencil. Remove the masks, then remove the stencil.

Mount the clear stamps on a mounting block and ink up with lime green ink and stamp at the bottom of the heart.

Glue the stamped panel to the lime green paper and glue that to the card base.

For the envelope, open it so that the flap is facing you and mask off the area where the flap folds to the front of the envelope. Using the same stamps and inks, stamp all over the flap.
