Corrugated Valentine’s Day Card

Corrugated Valentine’s Day Card

So yes, I know it has been months since I last uploaded a video. I know it has been a long time, but honestly, my health is still not at its tip top shape.  Trust me, I know it stinks.  I am really hoping to improve in the future.  I already have a few ideas for Easter, which would be nice to have it work out.

This is a simple Valentine’s Day card. The supplies you need are as follow:

  • 5×7 Kraft Card
  • Kraft cardstock
  • White cardstock
  • Brown cardstock
  • Corrugated Cardboard
  • Wide Burlap Ribbon
  • White Lace Ribbon
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Cocoa – Colorbox Pigment Stamp Pad
  • Black Ranger Archival Ink
  • Double Sided tape
  • Aleene Original Tacky Glue
  • Plastic Palette Knife (option)
  • Tim Holtz’s Distressed Stain – Vintage Photo
  • Heart Stamp Set from Inkadinkado stamps
  • “Be My Valentine” stamp from Craftsmart
  • Manuscript Background Stamp- Recollection, but that stamp has been discontinued.

The songs that I used are called, “Waterfall”, “Invisible Beauty”, “Dreamland”, “Til Death Part Us,” and “Arms of Heaven” are from the Youtube Libriary.

I know you will notice the palette knife on the list of supplies and thinking why is it there? The reason is simple, I am still having trouble with the glue, my hand strength is still not there yet.

I hope everyone is doing ok and trying to warm in this long cold winter.
