Rose Cards for Valentine’s Day

LEARN HOW TO MAKE THESE PRETTY FLOWER CARDS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY USING YOUR CRICUT

I am back with another card tutorial for you. Today, I want to share with you my Rose Cards for Valentine’s Day.

This card was fun to design. I used foam squares to add some dimension to the card and added an extra pop of pink to the front. Use some glitter cardstock for some extra sparkle!

I love the sentiment as well. “Love is like a flower. It grows into something beautiful.” So sweet and true.

I have included an envelope file to go along with the card. Also, if you don’t have a cutting machine, you can still make this card! I have added a PDF version that you can just print off on your home printer!

In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.
