Using the paper trimmer, cut a piece of your patterned paper to 6" x 5". This will become the card base. Punch each corner of the card base to create those decorative elements.

Select icons from the Engraved Gardens ephemera pack. This card used the fish and blue heart.

Step 5

Create a Valentine greeting to fit within a 4" wide by 1/2" high trim size and print it onto the light teal solid cardstock. Trim the greeting to this size and attach it where shown with the tape runner. Draw a rough outline around the greeting with the gold metallic pen.

Create a message for the inside of the mini-card on your computer to fit into a trimmed size of 3 1/2" x 3". Print it onto the light teal cardstock and trim to this size.

Step 9

Adhere the message inside the mini-card with the tape runner, then adhere the mini-card to the card base.

Step 10

Select a final icon from the ephemera pack. Attach it to the mini-card with an adhesive dot to hold the mini-card closed.
