Valentine Star Easel Card

Hello crafting friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine weekend.  Lena here today sharing a fun Valentine card I made for my hubby.


Isn't it cute?


Here is a side view.



This is the back of the card and where you can stamp your greeting and write your personal message.



This card comes apart and folds flat for mailing. My card base was 5" x 6" and as you can see it fits in an A9 envelope which does not require extra postage to send it within the US or to send it overseas.

Now for a quick description:

I don't have a pictorial for you, but I do have the link to the tutorial video I followed.  Sam is great with her easy to follow instructions.  You can find the link here --> Star Easel Card.

I cut all the pieces of the card base, mirror card stock and patterned paper.  I used Memento Lady Bug ink to shade in all the edges of the patterned paper to give it a little more definition.  Then I cut a scalloped circle and a regular circle and adhered them together to make the background mat for cupid.  Lastly, I cut the cupid in red card stock and adhered it to the mat. I used foam dots to stick it down on the "star" part of the card.  I think this is such a fun card to make and it doesn't take long at all.  And best of all, you can practically do it in any size you like.  I prefer the rectangle shapes as I feel the "star" is more defined, but you can make them as square cards too!  This explanation is also on the tutorial video I linked to above.

As always, here is a list of the materials I used, 
each linked to the Dies R Us store, for your convenience.










Please note that you can use any scalloped circle/regular circle combination, so if Dies R Us are out of the Spellbinders dies, you can use Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, or Elizabeth Craft Designs, just to name a few that will work and are currently in stock at the store. Similarly, you can enter "Cupid" in the store's search bar, and there will be many other options to replace the cupid I used, which is currently out of stock.

I'd like to remind you  that our sister store is now opened.  Didi Crafts has warehouses located in the USA and Canada, and although it carries some of the same products as Dies R Us, you will also be able to purchase a huge variety of crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Having this sister store means that our Canadian crafting friends won't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees.  Isn't that great?!  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!


Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope that I was able to inspired you to use your dies, create a project, and come play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for your chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.
