avocuddle valentine's day card

This avocado-themed cutie is sure to be the toast of any Valentine’s Day card exchange! Read on and we’ll show you how to use a paper trimmer and adhesive runner to make these adorable cards faster than you can say, “Avo-good day!”
Step 1
Project Note: 
   -  Use our project image as a guide to make the same card or switch it up a little.
   -  With the supplies we’ve listed here, you’ll be able to make about 24 cards, total. 
 
 
Use the paper trimmer to cut a piece of Silver glitter cardstock that’s 4½" x 6". Next, take a sheet of light pink cardstock from the paper pack and cut a piece that’s 4" x 5½". 
Step 2
Use the adhesive runner to stick the Silver glitter piece to the very front and center of a white, folded card. Repeat to stick the light pink piece onto the center of the Silver piece. 
Step 3
Remove a sheet of hot pink cardstock from the paper pack and use the paper trimmer to cut a piece that’s 1¾" x 5". Use the adhesive runner once more and stick this piece horizontally across the center of the card.  
Step 4
Now it’s avocado time! Stick four foam adhesive circles onto the back of the avocado die cut, then flip the die cut over again and stick it onto the center of the hot pink strip on the card front.  
Step 5
Add a strip of washi tape with the saying “LET’S AVOCUDDLE” to the bottom half of the card. You can trim away any excess tape on the sides. 
Step 6
Almost done! All that’s left to do is to use the Silver glitter glue to add glittery dots to the top, light pink portion of the card. When your card is dry, add a sweet Valentine’s Day message on the inside.
