Today I’m sharing this fun masculine Valentine’s Day card created using the Conversation Bubbles bundle. We see so much red and pink on Valentine’s day that I thought I’d share something a little different.
My husband appreciates all the cards I make him but I know red and pink are not really his colours so I chose to go with something a little out of the box. I still included some hearts on the card and a greeting to express my love for him it’s just more ‘us’. It’s so fun to be able to customize a card for its recipient.
I didn’t get a chance to film a video for this card, but here’s a quick tutorial.
- Thick Basic White: 5 ½” x 8 ½”
- Evening Evergreen: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”
- Soft Succulent: 3-3/4” x 5”
- Pool Party: 2” x 3”
- Basic White: 2” x 2”
- Crushed Curry: 2” x 2”
- Fancy Flora DSP: 2” x 3”
- Any Color Cardstock for creating a template: 3” x 4”
- Opaque Gems: x3
- Die cut the largest of the full conversation bubbles dies from the Soft Succulent cardstock, positioning it so that it’s a bit closer to the bottom and to the left.
- Using the 3” x 4” scrap of cardstock die cut the second largest rectangle and the cloud like conversation bubble.
- Use the negative space from these die cut shapes as a template. Trace around the edges using the Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Marker onto the soft succulent layer with the conversation bubble cut from it.
- Using the dark Evening Evergreen marker and a bone folder splatter the Soft Succulent layer.
- Position the Soft Succulent layer over top of the Evening Evergreen and make note of where the Conversation bubble is die cut. You can also use a pencil and trace the shape. Add the piece of Fancy Flora dsp to the Evening Evergreen cardstock so that you’ll see it through the die cut shape.
- Add the Soft Succulent layer to the Evening Evergreen layer using dimensionals. And then add that to the card base.
- Stamp the image with the 3 hearts onto the Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink. Die cut it with the coordinating die and another of the conversation bubbles. I used the one that’s almost square but you can use any of them.
- Die cut three hearts from the Crushed Curry card stock.
- Stamp ‘love ya’ using Memento ink onto the white cardstock and fussy cut around the words.
- Add the conversation bubbles, greeting and hearts to the card front as shown in photo. Note: the trio of hearts and love ya are popped up on dimensionals. Everything else is flat.
- Add three white opaque gems.
