hand made acrylic valentine card This hand made acrylic valentine card features the currently popular transparent acrylic look.

The back is partially covered with a rectangle of two-sided scrapbook paper from K & Company’s Die Cut Mat Pad.

The front border features two bands of torn Bazzill card stock. The darker rose color is glued to the back, the lighter pink to the front.

The die cut “I (Heart) You” is cut with the Cricut Machine
machine using the Cricut Mini Monograms Font Cartridge . I’ve glued a small button to the dot on the ‘I” and I’ve added some glitter using a clear glitter glue.

The stamping uses Hero Art’s “Happy Valentine’s Day Stamp” and the brackets are from the Hot Off the Press Thinga-ma-jigs collection. I’ve stamped with black Stazon ink, since Stazon, as far as I know, is the only ink that will dry on the acrylic. Stazon is a solvent ink, so I don’t recommend using it unless necessary.

This hand made acrylic valentine goes together fairly quickly. Obviously, you could use any suitable die cut instead of the I HEART You shape, or you could use a similar design for a card for any occasion.
