Romance and relationships get a lot of love around Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fane of romance and relationships (I also totally dig the color pink). Unfortunately, your single girlfriends tend to get excluded from the holiday. A lot of times this can make them feel a little jaded on Valentine’s Day, understandably so. No one likes to feel excluded (if you do, be happy that you’re the exception). This year, let your girlfriends know you’re thinking of them with this humorous zombie valentine!

Trim one piece of scrap paper to a size that allows for roughly ½ inch border around your stamp. Next, round the corners with your punch.
Mount your stamp to your acrylic block. Have holographic embossing powder open and ready to pour.
Ink your stamp with black ink and stamp it in the center of your scrap of paper from step one. Immediately cover stamped image with embossing powder.
- Do this on a piece of paper to keep your work surface clean and make it easier to return excess powder to container.
Shake off excess powder and return it to the container.
Emboss the powder with your heat gun. (I use the heat gun in this post. It works fantastic and doesn’t cost a fortune!)
Mount the stamped paper to a larger scrap using your glue runner.
Trim the edges to create an even boarder around your stamped paper. (It can be any size you would like as long as it isn’t larger than your card.)
Measure a piece of glitter tape to the size of your card. Next, remove the backing and place across your card as pictured above.
Trim any excess glitter tape so that it is even with the edge of your card.
Place a gemstone on each dot of the colon of your stamped image.
Trim your vellum saying and adhere it to your third scrap of paper.
Trim the edge tight to your vellum saying.
Cut your fourth piece of scrap paper to roughly the same size as your vellum/paper and glue the paper together as pictured above.
Attach the saying papers to the inside of your card.
This card is so much fun (both to make and to receive)! All of your girlfriends are sure to get a chuckle at a time of year it can be needed. Laughter is absolutely the best medicine and they are sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness. Let your girls know that you haven’t forgotten them this Valentine’s Day. Make this fun zombie valentine (quickly and easily) and brighten her day!
