Valentine´s Day card in red, black and white

Valentine´s Day card in red, black and white for the January MFT & Friends.

Welcome back! Today I’m celebrating the MFT January Release with a Valentine´s Day card in red, black and white.

It’s actually the third recent card that I’ve created with this combo, which I associate with love. HERE and HERE you can see the previous ones…

Valentine´s Day card in red, black and white with patterned paper and zebra.

Although I already used the Heart Rays Die-namics during the January Release Countdown (in THIS card), I hadn’t taken advantage of its unique design. I though it would be fun to combine the puzzle feature of it with the “You complete me” sentiment from the Bitty Hugs & Kisses stamp set.

Love themed card in red, black and white for MFT Stamps.

First, I adhered that black and white striped paper from the Creepy Confections Paper Pad to an A2 top fold card base of Smooth White Card Stock. Next, I adhered the polka dot paper from the Road Trippin’ Paper Pad to a panel of the same card stock.

After that, I used the heart die (which I also die cut in Red Hot Card Stock), as well as the second largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics, to die cut my panel. I adhered some acetate to the reverse of it and inlaid all but one of the heart pieces in their places.

Next, I  adhered my panel to the card base with foam adhesive. The original idea was to turn it into a shaker, but you could hardly have seen the content of it anyway. After heat embossing the sentiment on the last heart piece, I adhered it sligthly off set with thin fom squares.

To finish the card, I added one of the cute zebras from the Zippy Zebras stamp set, as well as some enamel dots in black and red. That’s it for today! Before you leave, I’d love to know what are some of your favorite products from the MFT January Release? Mine are the BB Hug It Out and Friendly Unicorns stamp sets, the Heart Air Balloon Die-namics and the Bitty Banner Alphabet.  Happy shopping! ^_^
