Country Craft Creations DT Project: Valentine Card featuring BoBunny Serenade

It's getting closer and closer to Valentine's Day. Last year I was a slacker and didn't even make my husband a card. (Bad wife!) This year I wanted to make sure that he got a card. This paper collection (BoBunny Serenade) lends itself to non-frilly valentine cards and projects. My husband loves anything I make for him, but I try not to make stuff that's pink and frilly, especially since he tends to take them to work and leave them on his desk for all to admire.

This card is a design from the Silhouette Online Store (Design ID: 72544). It is a 5x7 double bi-fold card. I cut the card base and the cupid out of black cardstock. I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but the point on the end of the arrow is a piece of heart shaped bling. 

The card base was in two pieces that needed to be adhered together. I used 1/8" Scor-Tape for that. After I inked all the paper edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, I used the 1/4" Scor-Tape to adhere the rest of my patterned paper to the card base.

Since this paper is heavily patterned, there is no way that I would be able to write on the inside. I used one of the 3x4 pieces from the cut-apart page to give me a place to write a love note to my husband.

Since this IS a Valentine's card, I thought this "All you need is Love" sticker from the sticker sheet was appropriate. I originally had it on the front of the card but it got lost in all the patterns. Next I tried it on the back of the card, sort of like my own little "hallmark," but finally decided to put it on the back of the heart on the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project! Don't forget to visit the Country Craft Creations in Hooper Facebook page and Website/Blog to stay informed of current sales and available products.

  1. In another post I saw you use a Memory R Us trimmer/score board. For the life of me can’t find the replacement blades on their web site! Could you help a fellow crafter out!
