Anniversary/New Husband Card

Show your new husband how much you love him.

Card size: A5

  • Wrap the card in paper from HOTP Jewel  Creative Pack. Cut out three tags from the same pack. Write your sentiment in Black Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen and set aside to dry.
  • Add a stippled top and bottom border using a ruler and a Black Sakura Gelly Roll pen. 
  • Add Page Accents from All My Memories "A Night To Remember"
  • Stick on a flower in the top corner. These particular stickers are great as they leave no white edges.
  • Add a gold brad to each of the tags you made earlier and attach to the top page accent using glue dots so the 3D effect is maintained.
  • Finally attach a large metallic Bow.





Picture the scene: It's your anniversary and you thought your husband had forgotten. He pulls out this card with a sheepish grin and inside you find tickets to a fancy place uptown. Sounds good doesn't it?

Card size: A5

  • Wrap the card in paper from HOTP Icy Rainbow Creative Pack (I used a pink paper with musical notes). Glue a coordinating paper to the bottom third of the paper (I used a lovely paper with words like "Surprise" and "Together")
  • Glue on a strip of ribbon from the  HOTP Jewel Ribbon pack on the join.. Add strips of the same ribbon on the top as shown.
  • Using a vellum envelope from the Jewel Creative pack attach the "Let's Dance" sticker from All My Memories "A Night To Remember" Page Accents sheet. Stick the dress page accent on top as shown.
  • Add roses as shown.

A sophisticated and elegant  card which is great when you don't want to use the traditional red Valentine colour scheme.

  1. I embossed a border of hearts at the top and bottom.of  HOTP Cardmakers paper and covered the front and back of the card with the paper.

  2. Next a length of coordinating fibre was stuck to the spine of the card as was a piece of randomly torn pink Mulberry paper. I left the edges of the mulberry slightly loose to create a 3D effect.

  3. A small envelope was stuck on the front with a padded "Love" sticker on a chalked piece of cardstock slightly tucked into the envelope. A silver heart clip completed the envelope.

  4. Using silver mesh fabric I wrapped several blue roses into a bouquet and tied them with ribbon and a pink satin bow.

  5. To complete the card 6 crystal gems were glued onto the card in two rows of three.




As a variation of card 1 this one is great as an anniversary or Valentine card to the one you love.

  1. HOTP cardmakers paper was glued on to cover the front and back of the card.
  2. I chalked a plain tag and stuck round crystal gems all around the edges. The initials of the "loving couple" were placed in the middle with a silver heart peel-off topped with a crystal gem between them. A length of Funky Fibre was attached to the tag and glued to the top corner of the card, and the tag itself was stuck down so that the ribbon was slightly loose.
  3. Next coordinating fibres were attached to the spine, covering the top of the ribbon.
  4. Red and white roses were tied in silver mesh fabric and attached to the card. A pink satin bow completed the bouquet.
  5. Finally a large Ornare Crystal heart was glued to the top corner of the card.







Valentine card.

Although it looks as though the centre has been cut out on the picture, the heart actually sits on a piece of red cardstock.

  • Cover the card with "I Love You" vellum using Invisi Dots to stick it down. Invisi Dots ensure no glue will be visible through the transparent vellum
  • Cut out a heart shape and a smaller identical heart shape. Smother the smaller one in gold Stickles Glitter glue and leave to dry. Cover the larger heart in the "I Love You" vellum, using Invisi Dots. Place the small heart in the centre of the larger heart on foam pads, and position on red cardstock using foam pads again to lift it of the paper. Place four gold crystal gems in each corner and stick the finished piece onto the top half of the card.
  • Cut out a rectangle piece of white vellum and attach two gold eyelets to each end. Place "Valentine" peel-off wording on the banner and stick onto card.





A cool Valentine card in lovely warm hues. Simple to make and very cost effective.


Hearts Galore!! Red and black makes a stunning combination and this card uses this to full effect. Red hearts amass, each embossed with more hearts, with the words "Be My Valentine", on a black deckle-edged card .

  • Cut out the words "Be My Valentine" with QuicKutz Frankie Skinni Mini Alphabet.
  •  Cut out 13 red hearts and emboss them with QuicKutz "Hearts" Goosebumpz.
  • Stick the red hearts on the card and top each with a letter to read "Be My Valentine". Pipe Gold Stickles Glitter glue on each letter.
