Love is in the Air

Here is the Valentine's Day Card I made for my hubby.  I started with a white card base cut and scored to  make a 4 1/4" X  5 1/2" card base.  I added a pink mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and then added the red dotted mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".

 My image is from a Cricut Imagine cartridge. Using Cricut Design Space I sized the image to about 3" and then unflattened it. Because this is an Imagine image it is already set to print and cut. Because of that the software allowed me to unflatten and print each layer separately just like it would on the Image and then cut it using my Cricut Explore.  I sprayed all the layers with some Diamond glitter and then adhered the layers together with foam tape.

I then took a 4" white paper doily I had and using my Ranger embossing dabber added embossing ink to the edges of the doily.  I then added some of the Ranger sticky embossing powder and heated it up.  I then quickly sprinkled the edges with a mix of Spun Sugar and Raspberry Distress glitter and allowed it to cool so the glitter was adhered to the doily.  I added that to my card base first then placed my layered heart on top.  I added a pin with a heart on the end and some small gems to two corners and applied them so they looked like hearts.  Finally stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


  1. Nice job, Deanna... I'm sure your hubby will love your card! Love the addition of the pin, too.

  2. What a fantastic card for the hubs!!!!! I love the shimmer and shine and I love what you did with the doily! The stickpin is a perfect finishing embellishment!
