True Love Sponged Valentine Card

Create this True Love Sponged Valentine Card for a romantic Valentine or Anniversary card. From plain designer series paper to a coordinated card, all it takes is ink!

I wanted to make a “romantic” card, but one that wasn’t just PINK. To that end, I found Rich Razzleberry to be a perfect purple that tows that line, especially when it’s sponged.

Coupled with the Black and White True Love designer series paper, this color ink not only stands out, but gives a fancy impression perfect for a Valentine’s Day or Anniversary card.

Importantly, don’t be afraid to add color to your designer series papers! Sponging color onto patterned paper is a fantastic technique that can help coordinate any project to the paper you want to use.

Lastly, a touch of foil offers a great feature in the middle of the card!

I wrote out the directions to make this deceptively simple card below:


How to Make a True Love Sponged Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Basic White:
    • 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored and folded at 4 1/4”
    • 1” x 5 1/4” strip
  • Rich Razzleberry: 5 1/4” x 4”
  • True Love DSP: 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”
  • Vellum: scrap
  • Die-cut “Love you more than” using the die-cuts of the same name (they coordinate with the Nothing’s better than” stamp set with coffee and chocolates).

Color your DSP:

  • Using a sponge dauber, dab your Rich Razzleberry ink and begin sponging your black and white designer series paper.
  • Begin from the edge and, in circular motions, ink up your roses. The more ink you add, the darker and richer the color.

Adhere it all together:

  • Adhere the sponged DSP to your Rich Razzleberry layer, then add the white strip across the center.
  • Use liquid glue to glue “Love you” to your vellum piece. Then use glue dots to adhere it to the center of the white strip.
  • Lastly, adhere your layer to the front of the card base.
