Moustache Heart Valentine Card



Hello, I'm back again with another Moustache themed project for Valentines Day.

I wanted to show that the lovely new First Edition ‘Love Story’ papers from +Trimcraft Ltd  are very versatile and suitable for Modern, Masculine and fun makes too, as well as feminine and romantic makes.


One of my favourite First Edition die sets is the Vintage Gentleman set and so I created this fun Mr. Moustache Heart Valentine card using the Wood Textured canvas effect paper in the Love Story pad and teaming it with black, red and kraft for an easy modern make.


 Step By Step:
  1. Cut a sheet of Wood patterned canvas effect paper from the 6x6 Love Story Pad to measure approx. 5 3/8” square.  And Ink around the edges with red ink.  Mat onto a slightly larger square of Dovecraft black card and again onto a 6x6” Kraft card blank (fold along the top) using double sided tape. 
  2. Using black ink and the Dovecraft ‘Be My Valentine’ clear stamp, stamp the sentiment along the bottom of the woodgrain paper, pressing evenly & firmly to ensure a good print on the textured surface.
  3. Cut 2 heart shapes from Love Story paper by hand or by using a die, template or your Cricut machine to cut simple hearts.  Ink around edges with red ink and adhere largest heart to card front.  Mat the small heart on top using 3D foam pads to add height.
  4. Using the FE Vintage Gentleman die set, cut 1 curly moustache shape from Dovecraft black card and attach to heart using 3D foam pads.  Glue 2 googly eyes in place if you have them, if not you can create eyes with circles of black and white card.
  5. To finish I created black pearls by using a First Edition black marker to colour pearls, when dry I added 1 large and 2 small to either side of the stamped sentiment.
