Multiple techniques on a Valentine’s Day Card

valentine's day card

Using Stardream cardstock as the base for my card, I created a Valentine’s Day card. Testing out the usability of the Stardream cardstock, I used a variety of different techniques. Drawing on the cardstock with markers, gluing an element down, and adding vinyl, the Stardream cardstock accepted all without any special effort.

This post is created for the CutCardStock design team where I post twice a month.

The card stock used for this project was Stardream Metallic in Eris. CutCardStock has a ton of different colors of Stardream to choose from, they are all just beautiful and my favorite cardstock from CutCardStock.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut vinyl and draw on the card base. In the image above you can see the pen installed into the A slot. The Cricut only draws the outlines of letters so if you want solid letters you need to color them in.

Here the letters are colored in and I have added a small heart over the apostrophe that I colored in to match the colored letters, I am also checking out the placement of the vinyl heart.

A close-up of the card shows the little heart better. Looking closely, you can also notice the two colors of the word valentine’s, which gives a slight dimensional look to the letters.
