Winter Valentine by Allie Gower

Winter Valentine by Allie Gower

Card Base Instructions
  1. Begin by constructing the card base. Cut a sheet 4.25x12” and score at 5.5 and 11 inches. Add a white panel inside (4 x5.5”).
  2. On the front of the card, cut a white square 3.25” square. Cut a square of patterned paper 3” square.
  3. Wrap ribbon around front of card. Create a small loop of ribbon.  Tie a third piece of ribbon around the looped ribbon and the ribbon on the card to create a neat, quick bow.

Snowflake Centerpiece Instructions
  1. Cut snowflake base and top snowflake (see image for instructions). I did not have enough red paper, so I cut both from white and colored the base with a Spectrum Noir marker.
  2. Stamp snowflake from Charming Holidays set in Teal Zeal.
  3. Assemble snowflake and attach to card.
  4. Embellish with rhinestones.

Embellishment Cluster
  1. Die Cut a charming circle and two tiny tags.
  2. Stamp the charming circle with “Warm Winter Wishes” from the Charming Holidays’ set in Teal Zeal, and the snowflake from the same set in Love Letters.
  3. Stamp “Brrr” from the {die}luxe Tiny Christmas Tags Stamp & Die Combo in Love Letters onto one of the die cut tiny tags.
  4. Embellish tags with rhinestones.
  5. Stamp the snowflake tag image in Teal Zeal onto the the remaining tag.
  6. Loop these stamped tags onto a silver Pear Pin and attach to the loop on the bow.
  7. Cut shank of heart button and hot glue to top of bow.

  1. Add color to flowers with Memento Markers.
  2. Spritz flowers with Shimmer Spritz.
  3. Hot glue flowers to card.

Finishing Touches
  1. Add cocoa inside card, and any message.
  2. Close card and adhere flap with adhesive.
