This Valentine card has a fresh modern look, and is a card design which is easy for beginners to card making.
The best way to fold a piece of card is to use a card folder and bone tool, or by scoring a line using a scalpel and metal ruler.
Find a sheet of valentines themed patterned scrapbook paper in your craft supplies. Here I have used a red and pink spotty paper. Cut the paper 18cm x8cm and place it inside the red card using double sided tape.
Place the mat and layered panel onto the bottom of the folded white card edging it to the right hand side and securing it in place using double sided tape.
Place a strip of grey or silver satin ribbon across the panel using an extra strong double sided tape to hold it in place. If you do not have grey or silver ribbon then have a look in your craft making supplies for something that will work well with the colours you have used.
It is always a good idea to tuck the ribbon around the corners of the panel as this looks a lot neater than cutting the ends as the ribbon may fray. You can secure the ends of the ribbon at the back of the card with tape as this will keep it in place and will not be seen from the front of your Valentine card.
To make the large ‘Be Mine’ topper cut some gold mirror card 9.5cm x 11cm. Then place a piece of red card 9cm x 10.5cm on top of the gold using double sided tape. Cut a piece of grey card (to match the ribbon) 8.5cm x 10cm and place that on top of the red card.
I have used some ready made shop purchased wording however you can use whatever you have in your craft supplies that fits the theme of your Valentines card to decorate the grey box.
