Floral Valentines Day Card. Love Blossoms. Brass and Bliss Craft Co Handmade Card.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for Love to Blossom and to express your love and appreciation for someone special in your life.

If you’re looking for a unique and meaningful way to show your affection, consider gifting a romantic, handmade floral card with a touch of pink, gold, and a little sparkle to add elegance and glamour. This card, made by our designer, Dominique, is an excellent way to show a loved one just how much you care. This card just sparkles for the one you love. Don’t you agree? Follow along as Dominique give us step by step instructions on how to recreate this masterpiece, where love truly blossoms.

  • To begin, cut a piece of white card stock to 4.24″x5.5″. Dominique used 100lb card stock. Wipe your card stock with an anti-static pouch or brush.
  • Next, using ‘3496-06 New Friends Floral‘, stamp the image using clear embossing ink. Once stamped, sprinkle gold embossing powder over the image and heat emboss.

  • Once cool, it is time to color your image. Dominique says she is not the greatest at freehand coloring, so she used the coordinating ‘3486-06S-New Friends Floral Stencil‘. If you have superior coloring skills, feel free to color this image using the medium of your choice (Copic markers, color pencils, etc.). To stencil the flower petals, Dominque used ‘Rubbernecker Color Fuse Inks, Set #5‘. She used Rose for Layers 1 and 2; Blush for Layer 3. For the leaves, which is Layer 4, the color Fern from ‘Rubbernecker Color Fuse Inks, Set #11‘, was used.
  • Once the coloring is complete, cut the image out using ‘3496-06D-New Friends Floral Die‘ and set aside.

  • Next, create the background. For this, Dominique used one of the sheets from ‘Brass & Bliss 2201-Heart String Paper Pad‘. She liked the design with the pink and white strips and the little gold heats. So cute!
  • To step the card up a notch, some gold heat embossing was done. Using her Misti and ‘3487-09-French Script Background‘, Dominique lined the image up on the patterned paper. Next, she used her anti-static pouch on the paper. Then she stamped using clear embossing ink, sprinkled on gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.
  • Once the card was cool, she cut the paper using the largest rectangle from ‘5500-01D-Inside Scallop Frame Die‘. This was set aside with the floral image.
  • Next, using the second largest rectangle from ‘5500-01D-Inside Scallop Frame Die‘, cut a piece of gold card stock.
  • On the back of the gold frame, add two layers of double sided foam tape

  • Next, grab some card stock from your collection to be used as a card base. Dominique used pink paper that was cut to 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored at 4.25″.
  • Dominique created a banner using a piece of vellum. This can be cut using a banner die from your stash or by cutting it using your paper trimmer. Once the banner was created, she treated it with her anti-static pouch.
  • She stamped the sentiment ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ from ‘36022-Bear Hugs Enclosed Set‘, using a clear embossing ink. Cover with gold embossing power, then heat emboss. Add some clear double sided tape to the back and set aside.
  • Time to assemble the card! Add double sided tape to the back of the patterned paper, then adhered that to the card base. Next, take the floral die cut image and add one layer of foam tape to the back of it. Next, adhere your banner sentiment. Lastly, add your gold frame. Voila! You have created your card!
  • If you have time, for the inside panel, decorate it with the same floral image and add some coloring details.

Crafter Tips

  • When using a stencil that does not include the name or call out of the layers, create your own! I do this by writing on the stencil with a Sharpie pen and then covering it with clear tape so it doesn’t rub off. By doing this, you will save yourself time when trying to figure out which layer is which.
  • If you don’t have foam tape, you can use a fun foam sheet or you can die cut the image multiple times (Dominique likes multiples of 3 or 5) from plain card stock, and stack the layers on top of each other.

Dominique has certainly made an elegant card that is both romantic and feminine, with a beautiful floral design full of pink, gold and sparkle. This card is definitely showing her love. Be sure to visit our Instagram account to see more amazing Valentine’s Day cards made by our amazing team.
