Black and White

On February fourteenth some couples will be celebrating not only Valentine's Day, but also their wedding anniversary. So I decided do make a card that can be used for both occasions. 
 You can always change the red ribbon and bow for a white or pearl color, change the sentiment phrase and make a wedding card instead.
Make a white card
Cut a black piece of black cardstock 1/2-inch smaller than the card on each side. Cut the bottom border of in scallops.
Emboss a white piece of cardstock

Die-cut two hearts from the embossed paper, one from a piece of the black cardstock, and one from a black glittered cardstock.
Punch three 1/8-inch circles from the black glittered cardstock.

Cut a piece of white cardstock 0.2-inch smaller than the black cardstock. Adhere a red ribbon to it, then adhere both to the black cardstock. Glue a bow on the ribbon.
Paste everything on the card
Die-cut two scalloped hearts: one black and one white. Paste the hearts as shown. Make a bow-tie and a strip from the white cardstock. Glue them to the black heart like in the picture. Glue embellishment pearls to the embossed heart. Adhere the 1/8-inch glittered circles to the white strip on the black heart.
For the detail inside use the glittered heart, the second embossed heart, and two more glittered circles.
I think this is my husband's favorite Valentine's Day card so far. I hope you like it too because you sill have time to make one for your Valentine.
