XOXO Valentine’s Day Card using Block Party Alpha Outline

January 9, 2020

Hi Roadies! I’m feeling the love this New Year so I’m back with another Valentine’s Day project to share with ya’ll! For today’s card I used the Block Party Alpha Outline to create this design. This set so versatile(because you can spell anything!) and I love that you can color in the letters!

I started off with white card stock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. I added some texture by running it through my die cutting platform using a polka dot embossing folder and the recommended sandwich for my machine.

I die cut three scalloped hearts using red card stock and prepped them for heat embossing using anti-static powder. I stamped the X and O from the Block Party Alpha Outline using clear embossing ink and then sprinkled on silver glitter embossing powder. I tapped off the excess powder and then melted the powder with my heat tool. Two of the hearts are very small so I used tweezers to hold them while heat setting to avoid burning my fingers.

I waited a few seconds for the embossing to cool, then I gently wiped off any remaining anti-static powder using a dry cloth. Next I colored in the x’s and o’s using a white gel pen.

I cut a matte for my embossed panel using red card stock cut at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered it all onto a white A2 sized card base.

I decided to add a companion sentiment from the Modern Romance set onto my card. I couldn’t decide between black or grey card stock, so I heat embossed on both using white embossing powder. In the end I used the grey.

Now the fun part, put it all together! I popped up the hearts and sentiment using foam circles for a bit of dimension and arranged them on my card panel.

This card wouldn’t be complete without some IR gems! I sprinkled in a mix of flat back gems in Ant Max Red and Valerie Ice all over the background, following the flow of the heart placement.

I finished off the inside of the card by stamping the x’s and o’s from the Alpha Block Party Outline using red ink. Next I stamped a couple of sentiments from the Modern Romance set. I stamped one using black ink then Happy Valentine’s Day underneath it in red ink. That finishes off this card, until next time! Xoxo-Lorena
