Heart Shaped Valentine Card with FSJ!

Fun Stampers Journey offers so many awesome products to create stunning projects!  I was having so much fun with this heart shaped card that I couldn’t stop creating it with some slight variations!  This card is easy and quick but is stunning!!  It is also easy to mass produce!  The pictures below are of the shaped card on top of an A2 whip cream envelope.

The Everyday Script Stamp Set is full of sentiments in a gorgeous font and there is a coordinating die that allows for so many crafting options!  Purchasing those two items as a bundle also saves you 10%!

The Fun Stampers Journey Dies make creating a shaped card fun and easy!  I used the second largest heart die from the Heart-Felt Die set.  There is a coordinating Piercing set that you can purchase separately or you can save 10% and purchase it as a bundle!

In the card above, I used the Heart-Felt piercing die to add an unique feature along the edge of the heart.  The piercing does not go all the way through because there are two layers of paper but it still adds a nice decorative element to the card.

The sparkle tape really adds a wow factor to these cards!  I am absolutely amazed and in love with the whip cream sparkle tape!  I love how you get a different look just by adhering it to different colors of cardstock!  Check out the differences in the cards below:

Fun Stampers Journey also has sparkle tape in a variety of other colors.  One of the colors that coordinate with the Spring Filled Prints is Pool Play!  The Pool Play Sparkle Tape added so much to this card design!

Have you noticed the shimmer and shine on the sentiment?  Sparkle Silk can be used in a variety of ways!  To add that shimmer and shine, I just added a small amount to a clear block, then with a wet small blending brush, I simply painted that shimmer onto the sentiment.  The Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink is perfect for this because it doesn’t smudge or smear!  It is a blend of dye and pigment – so water has no negative impact!

Creating this card is a great way to use of scraps of paper – strips of any size.  You may have noticed that the cards in this post are created using a variety of size strips.  On a couple of the cards, I used 3/4 inch wide strips, on one I used 1/2 inch wide strips and on another I used a variety of sizes and paper patterns.   There are endless creative possibilities with this card!

I created a video to share how to create this card and tips on how to mass produce it easily and quickly.  You can view the edited version here or head over to my Facebook page and watch a replay of the Facebook live creation of this card.  They are a little different – and you may learn something by watching both.  I invite you to like/subscribe to me on youtube and Facebook!
