Vintage Valentine Card

By Aneta Matuszewska


Hello dear G45ers,

This romantic Valentine’s card will make a sweetest,

tiny gift for your beloved someone:



Step by step instructions below:

  1. Fussy Cut flowers and sentiment, and 2×3 inch cut-a-party.
  2. Position pieces moving around until you get the composition you like.
  3. Layer together by adding dimension with foam adhesive and a doily.
  4. 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.
