Hi there! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! I can't believe it's time to transition into Valentine's Day cards! The December release from i-crafter is full of everything love themed and perfect for Valentine's Day cards.
I love how easy it is to make interactive cards with the Flip Card Heart Bloom Die Set. There are a few video tutorials on how to assemble flip cards on the i-crafter YouTube channel, so be sure to check them out for visual walk-throughs.
I die cut both the front and back panels for the card from white cardstock using the Flip Card Heart Bloom Die Set. You want to make sure you do any of your decorating before you assemble the card - it makes it a lot easier! I decided to do some easy masking and ink blending. I used masking tape to mask off the outer heart shape and used i-brush Blender Brushes to blend a gradient of pink inks onto the outer triangle and heart windows of the card. I moved my masking tape and blended red inks onto the outer heart frame using an i-brush Blender Brush.
After my ink blending was complete I assembled the card with a bit of double sided tape. I wanted a bit of shimmer, so I added a panel of white shimmer cardstock to the inner portion of the card. I die cut the "love" from the Flip Card Heart Bloom Die Set, closed the card and opened the heart windows, and adhered it to the back of the card in the center of the windows.
I wanted the inner card to be a bit more interesting, so I cut a piece of pink and gold glitter cardstock and added it to the bottom of the card. That's all! An easy i-crafter Valentine's Day card! See you soon!
