Tactile Valentines

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching so I have been busy creating cards to send out some "love". I got to thinking about how fun it is to create and receive cards that are not only visually beautiful but also fun to touch... that "tactile pop" that steps the experience up a notch. Sometimes we create cards without even thinking about the physical feel of it when we touch it and the card will accidentally have various textures to enjoy. However, I have been trying to focus more on incorporating more "tactile pop" into my cards recently and that requires a more conscious effort on my part.

With that in mind, please enjoy this video I created demonstrating a simple card technique that also incorporates a lot of "tactile pop".


I hope that little video helped to clarify what I am talking about when I mention "tactile pop". Here are some added photos of some of the cards...



Here are the measurements for the cards I made in the video:

  • Card base: 4.25" x 11" then folded in half (at 5.5")
  • First layer: 4" x 5.25"
  • Second layer: 3.75" x 5"

Some of the supplies I used were:

  • White cardstock for the base.
  • Patterned paper from Kanban Crafts.
  • My double sided tape is: Angel Crafts Acid-Free Double Sided Tape.
  • Heart die is one I've had so long I forgot where I bought it from.
  • Here are where I bought the bows from: 200 Bows.
  • Here is a link to the wax pencil I used: 10 pc Wax Pencil.
  • This is the link to the pearls I used: 1100 pcs Gradient Imitations Pearls.
  • Debbi Moore Print Magic Lilac Moments.
  • I bought the glitter foam stickers and the square foam tape from Dollar Tree.
If I used something else that you want to know about, please let me know and I'll try to remember where I bought it from. I am terrible about keeping packaging.

Thank you for watching my little video and visiting my blog.
