Sealed with Love Valentine's Day card

Here is the card we did for class the first of January.  I was basically trying to teach the technique, which was using packing tape to get the glitter effect on the heart.  But, later, decided it needed some 'pizazz' so I added the extra stamping to the front.

Afterwards, I thought, hmmm, maybe just stamping around the heart and leaving the sentiment free.  That will be my next try :-)

Here are the directions, if you would like to try it.

Stamp Set:  Sealed with Love  #142815
Card stock:  Real Red 8 ½ x 5 ½, scored at 4 ¼.  Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5, scored on all sides at ¼”
Designer Series Paper:  Sending Love, #142733, 3”x3”
Scrap Cardstock: 4x5 ¼, cut out of scrap card stock using heart Framelit, to be used as a template 
Ink:  Real Red
Framelits: Sweet and Sassy Framelit Dies #141707 (2nd one in the 3 Framelit set)
Other supplies:
Ribbon:  Real Red stitched satin ribbon #141693, approximately 15”
Silicone Sheet #127853
3” Packing Tape
Dazzling Diamonds glitter #133751
Glue Dots
  1. Score Whisper White on all four sides at ¼”
  2. Stamp Sentiment just above bottom score line.
  3. Using template that you created, using the Sassy Heart Framelit, line it up on Whisper White card stock and run it through the Big Shot.
  4. Using a Silicon Sheet, lay white card stock face down.
  5. Lay a strip of 3" packing tape over the opening, sticky side down.  
  6. Turn card over and carefully sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds onto the sticky side.
  7. Tape a 3x3" square of Designer Series Paper over the back of the heart opening so the design shows through to the front of the card.
  8. With Real Red ink, stamp image around heart as pictured.
  9. Attach to Real Red card.
  10. Add strip of ribbon from center of top of heart and secure behind.  Add bow to top of heart using a glue dot.


  1. This is really a great idea! I will definitely play with it quite soon! Have a great weekend!

  2. It's a lot of fun!!! I got to thinking, though, that the image could be smaller then you could use the normal packing tape they sell in stores.
