Welcome lovers of love, and all things vintage! Today we have a #SimplyG45 Vintage Valentine Card tutorial that is so easy it just takes four steps. This handmade Valentine tutorial is by the fabulous G45 Brand Ambassador from Iceland, Aneta Matuszewska. Aneta has mastered shabby chic projects and the art of mixing and matching collections.

This Valentine is perfect for the upcoming holiday as well as our February Challenge, #G45Love. See more details below.

“Hello dear G45ers,
This romantic Valentine’s card will make a sweetest,
tiny gift for your beloved someone:
Step by step instructions below:
- Fussy Cut flowers and sentiment, and 2×3 inch cut-a-party.
- Position pieces moving around until you get the composition you like.
- Layer together by adding dimension with foam adhesive and a doily.
- Give your sentiment a banner feel by putting adhesive an inch from either side, leaving the center unadhered, making the center pop-up from card.
