Big Hugs Slimline Valentine Card
by Michelle Bala


Hello! Michelle here. Welcome back to Day 5 of our Valentine Blitz and giveaway! I'm sure you have been enjoying the newest Valentine supplies!!! Toady I am showcasing a mix of new and old. 

First, I used the new Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate to emboss and die cut the long panel.  I used a light pink cardstock. I adhered the panel to my card base. 


Next, I used the new Woodgrain Heart Die and die cut a heart from kraft paper.  I used two previously released dies, Bountiful Wreath Die and Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs Die, and die cut some branches as a filler behind the heart. I used aqua and lime green cardstock and Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad to die cut the branches.  I adhered the heart and branches to the card base with foam tape.


Last, I die cut the new sentiment, Big Hugs Posh Script. I used Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad for the script die and black cardstock for the shadow die.  I layered a piece of silver thread between the heart and sentiment before adhering.  For a finishing touch I splattered some white paint and I scattered some gems.
