Let’s talk emoji’s this Valentine’s Day.  We know they are a popular way to communicate simple messages so why not send the simple message of love on this special day.   This handmade card is more than just a message.  Use it to share with the person that you are in love and want to say “Happy Valentine’s Day.”

This 5” x 7” card base was created from a 10” x 7” piece of cardstock that was cut with a paper trimmer and scored in half using a scoring board.

This emoji sheet is from the Simple Stories Emoji Love collection and can be found in the 6” x 8” paper pad.  It was cut down to 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” so that it would fit onto the card base.  Adhere it using a tape runner.

Cut the pink strip (or color of your choice) from the 2 Cool Sheet from the collection. It should measure 5” long and 1 ¼” wide.  The width is cut down a little to allow it to fit under the emoji without covering the bottom of it.

Now with a set of circle dies and a die cutting machine or a circle punch cut several circles from the Lol sheet and adhere them across the strip created in the step above.  Attach the strip under the smiling emoji.

   

Create the look of floating hearts that stand out from the card by cutting several small hearts using a heart die or punch or stickers.   Attach them around the card using a 3-d adhesive so they look like they are floating across the front of the card.

Finish off the inside of the card with a sentiment of your choice.

This Valentine’s Day send someone a special emoji, but do it with more fun than just the click of a button.  Create this card and add to the fun of using emoji’s and the day.  A handmade card is a special message that you can easily give even when it uses modern things like an emoji.

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
