Die Cut Crazy Blog Hop

DCC FebBlogHop

Welcome to the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Valentine Blog Hop.

The designers have made some wonderful Valentine projects to inspire your own crafting with your die cuts.

If you just joined our hop, be sure and go back to the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Blog 

to learn how you can enter to win a prize

when following the hop from designer to designer.

 My holiday project I am sharing today is….a Valentine card!

BTW…My card is a little oversized and measures 4 3/4 x 5 1/2.

The first thing I did was cut out a 4 inch heart with my Cricut.

The next step was to make (6 ) 2 1/4 slits down the center of the hearts

with a Xacto knife approx. 3/4 inches apart.

Then I cut out 4 strips of ivory card stock 5/8″ wide…length doesn’t matter.

Now, the fun part it’s time to weave.

Here I just trimmed off to the size I wanted and put a tiny bit of glue on the

ends to keep them in place.

Here is another view.

The scalloped border was something from Creative Memories that I bet I have had for 8 years.

I added the Ivory victorian border that was cut with my Fiskars cutter.

The sentiment is from Gina K Designs along with the Spellbinders fancy tag.

Added a ribbon and some pop dots and I was done.

Thanks for stopping by the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Holiday Blog Hop.

I hope my project inspires you to create your own Valentine card and or project.
