Valentine cards are always fun to create, especially with cute stamps and patterns. Today, I will share a simple fancy fold valentine that you can make using components from the Not 2 Shabby Box of the Month. Not only do I have a video tutorial for you, but I also have simple step-by-step instructions to help you create a card of your own.
If this is your first time visiting my website, I want to welcome you. I designed an easy-to-navigate place where you can learn, be inspired, and grab a few freebies to add to your craft collection. The complete list of supplies you will need can be found below the main photo. Feel free to pin images to your inspiration boards or bookmark this site for later.
The pink cardstock base for this card measures 11” x 4 ¼”. With the longer side against the top of your scoreboard, it will need to be scored at 2 ¾” and 5 ½”. The tree pattern pieces are from the Somebunny Loves You paper pad. The larger one measure 5 ¼” x 4″ and the two smaller pieces measure 4” x 2 ½”.
For the smaller portion of the card, you will need a 10” x 2 ¾” piece of grey cardstock. With the longer edge at the top, score this at 4 ¾” and 7 ½”. The two pattern paper pieces for this panel are going to be cut down to 4 ½” x 2 ½” and 2 ½” x 2 ½”. You will also need a piece of white cardstock for the sentiment that measures 2 ½”x 2 ¼”.
That adorable truck image from the Loads of Love stamp set was stamped onto a 3 ½”x 3 ½” piece of white cardstock. On a scrap piece of cardstock, I stamped the tailgate so that I could pop it up off the card. Both of these images were shaded with TriBlend markers and adhered to the front panel.
In my video, I walk you through the steps to create this card and share some coloring tips to help you with this design.
This fun fold valentine is super simple and easy to make using components from the Not 2 Shabby Box of the month. You can add additional stamped images or sentiments, use another color palette, or rotate the card horizontally and create a unique design.
