Forever Flourishing, Playful Alphabet, Wreath Builder

Valentines wallpaper card

So I did a bit of an odd thing and used wallpaper to make this years Valentines card for my hubby. But it meant something so I suppose that makes sense!

The green wallpaper is the paper that has been on our lounge wall since we moved into the house. I have never loved it. Don’t get me wrong, it is nice paper, clearly expensive and good quality. But not something I would have ever chosen. Its always gotten nice compliments and I know my hubby liked it.

But after 11 years it was time to say goodbye and replace it (with the purple one that I used for the heart). It came off the wall in almost complete sheets and my hubby even joked about reusing it and putting it up in our bedroom! So I decided to keep a portion for his Valentines card… that way he can keep the paper in some way!

I decided on a 7×7 card and used a nice 6×6 piece for the main background. Then cut a few hearts from the new paper leftovers, layered and mounted them, and decided to use leaf and heart die cuts to decorate.

The main heart and little hearts were from the Wreath Builder die set, the leaves from Forever Flourishing set and the YOU letters from Playful Alphabets which is fast becoming an essential die set in my cardmaking for personalising and making statement sentiments.

I did add wink of Stella to the you letters for a bit of shimmer but otherwise didn’t go mad on bling and bits and pieces.

I added a sentiment strip with an old sentiment I’ve had for ages!

Inside the card I added another strip of the wallpaper and some leftover die cut bits.

On the envelope again strips of wallpaper and die cuts and some punched hearts.

Hope you like my fun valentines card and the story behind the wallpaper themed card!

Happy crafting!
