Sliding Valentines Video

I was watching a video (which I cannot find now)  and dreamed about making a Pirate that moved for my grandsons Valentines Day cards.  It worked!  I also decided to make a sliding Heart Valentine for my granddaughters.  Hope you enjoy making these.  If it is after Valentine’s Day you can choose any stamp you can cut out (punch out, die cut, or use scissors) to make it slide.

Red & Silver Wedding Card

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes w#128748  c#127802  MDS#125766
Ink:  Real Red
Card Stock:  Real Red
Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum #133364
Silver Glimmer Paper #135314 (available June 2, 2014)
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Ovals Collection Framelits #129381
Hearts Collection Framelits #125599

Ribbons:  Cherry Cobbler 3/4″ Chevron #130012
Silver 1/8″ Ribbon #132137
Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta #119251
Adhesives:  Glue Dots

1.  Cut your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch THIS VIDEO for more detailed instructions.

2.  Cut your Silver Fancy Foil Vellum with your Big Shot using the largest Scallop Oval Framelit.  Put a Glue Dot behind each silver heart.  Adhere Vellum Oval to card front making sure the hearts are the correct direction.  🙂

3.  Cut your Ribbons 7-8 inches long:
~One:  Cherry Cobbler 3/4″ Chevron
~Two:  Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta
~Two:  Silver 1/8″ Ribbon
Hold them together while tying a loose knot.  Position the narrow ribbons on the Knot if desired.  Now position the narrow ribbons over the Chevron Ribbon if desired.  If they don’t want to stay where you want them to just place a Glue Dot under the offending ribbon(s) near the knot.

4.  Punch out or cut out (with the desired size Heart Framelit) the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart.  Put Dimensionals on the back.  Stamp sentiment on Whisper White card stock with Real Red ink.  Punch out your sentiment with the Word Window Punch.  Run the brush tip of your Real Red Marker around the edge of your punched out sentiment if desired.  You can also do this around the Heart if desired.  It does add a little extra definition.  I didn’t do it on either this time.  Adhere the sentiment to the Heart with half Dimensionals.

5.  Lay your Ribbons and Heart in the desired positions.  Attach the Heart with the Dimensionals you put on the back.  Attach your Ribbons using 4-5 Glue Dots on the knot and next to the knot.

6.  Admire your silvery Wedding Card before writing in it and sending it off to the lucky couple.

Happy Card-Making!

Happy Stamping!
