Are you finding that you need a few more QUICK valentines? I have a very simple solution. I make variations of this card each year. It's quick, easy, and only uses a few supplies. On top of that, it's still quite impressive! What more can you ask for, right??
I used the technique where you punch out a shape - in this case I used the retired SU! folk heart punch (still love that one!) - and cover the punched-out area with clear packing tape. The sticky side should face out (away from the card base). You sprinkle iridescent glitter (but you could really use any color!) over the tape, and it sticks to the sticky side, leaving you with a shimmery shape! For this batch of cards, I used some Bittersweet patterned paper behind the glittery heart, but I normally use just the card base, so either pink or red.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday! Happy V-Day Eve! ;)
