I used this card as my inspiration for the above card.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut Base Camp cartridge
  • Cuttlebug machine
  • embossing folder
  • cardstock
  • adhesive
  • foam dots
  • heart gem
  • baker’s twine

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x 5.5″ and cut the white cardstock to 5.25″x 4″. Cut the love at 1″.  Run the white cardstock through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Adhere love and heart gem to the embossed cardstock.  Wrap the twine around the embossed cardstock then adhere to the card base using foam dots.

I love the graphic imagery of this card using the classic combination of red, black and white.  It is a very simple card, but the message comes across loud and clear.
