I decided to make my husband a Valentine's Day card hoping to keep it more masculine. Almost succeeded but I just had to add some glitter to the heart! I must give credit for my inspiration--Rosemary Dennis featured in CardMaker magazine, Winter 2012 issue.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • White card stock
  • Patterned card stock
  • Red card stock
  • red/white baker
  • Glossy Accents
  • button
  • Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive
  • Corrugated paper by Recollections
  • Distress Ink-Broken China
  • Recollections Extra Fine Glitter-Paradis

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

In Cricut Craft Room, Elegant Edges cartridge, size Hearts1 to 5.5" wide x 4.25" high. Weld a rectangle from Craft Room Basics, size 5" x 7" to Hearts1. Cut from white card stock.
Extreme Fonts: size "I" and "U" at 2 inches. Cut from patterned paper.
Extreme Fonts: click shift and add "I" and "U" at 2 inches. Cut from red card stock.
Plantin Schoolbook: The heart is cut at about 1.7" x 2.2". Select the heart and use the upper right button the re-shape the heart. Cut from corrugated paper using the deep-cut blade.

Note: I cut a piece of the corrugated paper to size and pressed it on the cutting mat. I also used removable tape on all four sides to make sure it held.
I sanded the heart and added Distress Ink to the raised ridges. Add glue to the raised ridges and sprinkle with glitter.
Thread baker's twine through the button and tie into a bow. I used Glossy Accents to adhere it to the heart.

Ink edges of the card front with Distress Ink.
Adhere the "I" and "U" pieces together. Adhere to the card front with the heart in the middle.

Wrap baker's twine along the top of the card front and tie into a bow on the inside.
Lastly, I decided to add a strip of red card stock behind the heart cut outs at the bottom edge of the card front. I then filled the hearts with Glossy Accents for a little extra pop!
