Quilted Masculine Valentine’s Day Card Tutorial


It’s so hard to make masculine Valentine’s Day cards isn’t it?!  This card is so easy & fun to make… and better yet, it only uses up scraps from your stash!

In the shop we have drawers where we store paper scraps we can all share.  For this card, I simply dug through those drawers to come up with coordinating papers to make a quilt-type card.  When I found a few patterns I liked I decided to use the Spellbinders Square Swatches die set.  You could use any shape you have in your own stash!  I cut a variety of sizes out of each patterned paper.  I decided on a not-so-random pattern I liked & cut off the excess that hung over the edges of my card front.  I then chose an embossing folder I liked – really, anything with a quilt-type pattern works.  I put my quilted card front through my Big Shot using the Couture Creations Tied Together A2 embossing folder.  I mounted the card front to another scrap piece of cardstock & put onto the card base.  I then cut about 5 pieces of the Cheery Lynn Designs xoxo die with bits of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock.  I used my Art Institute Glitter Glue to adhere all the layers to each other to give dimension.  I then wet embossed the die cut using my embossing dauber (super easy to use the dauber compared to a large embossing ink pad!) and used a white embossing powder.  I repeated the embossing powder application about 3 times to add to the dimension I was looking for.  I glued the sentiment to matching cardstock from the scraps and glued it to the front of my card on an angle.  That’s it, so easy!  Now go use up some of your scraps 🙂
