Valentine’s Day card with Aluminum Foil Video Tutorial


Check out this fun Valentine’s day card using the honeycomb textured impressions folder and aluminum foil.  It creates a glamorous textured background.  Love it!!!

I designed this card for my Saturday, February 2nd Valentine’s Day Stamp Camp.  I am so excited to share this one with the ladies.  If you haven’t already register… do so today space is limited. Click here to register for my Valentine’s Day stamp card making class!

To Make the beautiful heart I used the Stampin Up heart framelits and cut out the desired sized heart out of scrap paper.  I then used a sponge dauber and sponged my template with Melon Mamba.  When you remove the template your left with a beautiful heart.  Next, I cut out the sponged heart using the heart framelit.  I used the Stampin Up three little heart punch to create the smaller hearts.  I sponged them to add character.  Lastly, I added “Love You” from the Stampin Up Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.  Oh… and don’t forget the jewel rhinestone!

  • Basic Black Base 5-1/2″ x 11″ folded in half
  • Melon Mamba layer 5-1/4″ x 4″

    I just found your site and love your cheery attitude you make people want to see more. Thought I would give your a tip if you fold thee foil and use 3 or 4 layers your foil will hold it shape a lot better.
    God Bless

    Love,love your videos, I’m going to make this one for my husband. It leans towards the more manly side of Valentine cards and I like that.
    There are lots of cards to make for gir/s/women but I have a hard time coming up with ideas for boys/men. Thanks for taking the time to share.
