Valentine’s Day projects need sparkle and glimmer and shine! The Stardust Metallic Cardstocks and Glitter cardstocks from CutCardstock are perfect for any Valentine’s Day project.
The Stardust Metallic cardstock hot foils beautifully and this just adds on another layer of shine! I used the Stardust Metallic Silver cardstock for the bases of my Valentine’s bookmarks.
To start, I cut down a piece of red star hot foil using a rotary cutter, making it just a bit larger than the place I was using.
Next, I made my plate, foil, paper sandwich – you want to always make sure that the foil is between your plate and your paper and that the pretty side of the foil is touching the patterned surface of the hot foil die.
Then, the sandwich goes onto the hot foil machine with the flat side of the die on the machine. Touch the button, and when it lights up solid, it goes through your die cut machine!
Look at that pretty red shine! The smooth surface of this cardstock makes it perfect for hot foiling.
I made bookmarks with these foiled panels using a large bookmark die. The foiled pattern wasn’t tall enough to go to the top, but that’s ok! Because this die comes with a topper piece that can be cut out separately.
I used the Red Glitter cardstock to cut the topper pieces and some little hearts to finish off this card. This adorable puppy was the perfect focal image for a cute Valentine bookmark – I colored him with a few gray copic markers, just to add some shadow. This stamp set was a limited Edition from Whimsy Stamps/Simon Says Stamp for Stamptember 2022. I used the Cougar Super Smooth white Cardstock to stamp my puppy image, it is perfect for copic coloring!
Just add some ribbon to the top and these pawsitively adorable bookmarks are ready to go!
