Embossed Swan
Homemade Love Card

I made it for my husband.


  • AMACO red foil

  • red card stock

  • gold patterned paper

  • heart ribbon

  • swan and valentine's day stamps

  • Spellbinders long rectangle die

  • Fiskars decorative edger scissors

  • red seed beads

  • Zig 2 way glue

  • Ad Tech double sided adhesive

  • hot glue

  • Stazon black ink


  1. I stamped the swans on the red foil and turned them over and embossed them.

  2. I cut them out using the Fiskars decorative scissors.

  3. I adhered the gold patterned paper to the red card stock then adhered the ribbon and secured the bow with a glue dot.

  4. I used hot glue to adhere the swans.

  5. Then I stamped the Valentine sentiment and cut it out with the Spellbinders die.

  6. Used 3 seed beads for the hearts and glued them onto the sentiment which I then put on the card.
