Love in Bloom Valentine Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Tell someone you care with this adorable keepsake Valentine's Day card! This card is so fun your recipient will want to frame it!

Step one: Cut a 9x7¾ inch piece of paper. We used papers from Scrap Pad to Go - k-Ology Peabody. Fold it in half to finish at 7¾ x4½ inches. Trim a ¼ inch from the bottom front edge to expose the inside pattern.

Step two: Choose a contrasting paper and cut it 6½x3¼ inches. Attach it to the front, center of the card using Tacky Tape.

Step three: Mix and match the multi mix 6 piece felt flowers and the felt hearts to make three blooming hearts. Use a needle and Nymo D rosy mauve thread to tack them together in the center and sew the beads on. Use any combination of 6mm olivine lentils and 11/0 frosted silver-lined lemon lime, 11/0 silver-lined medium orange, 8/0 silver-lined lavender opal, 8/0 inside-color pink/pink and 8/0 higher-metallic royal purple Toho seed beads to make put the "bloom"?é?« in your hearts.

Step four: Use Tacky Tape to attach the hearts to the card.
