Now that we carry cardstock in our shop, it gives us the perfect excuse to craft some new cards. Our layered cardstock Valentine’s Day cards includes two different designs by Emily. You will find both options in the template and SVG file below, plus we have also included a printable version.
Because the papercut version of this card has so many intricate cuts, we recommend using a cutting machine for this DIY craft. Scroll down to see the supplies we used, then download the card design at the end of the post.
My love for you grows every daisy
When crafting your layered cardstock Valentine’s Day cards, you can choose the design you like best — or make both! One features a blooming daisy (with a heart for the center) surrounded by hands. And the other features text that says “Our love keeps growing.” Both have a retro look to them to complement the other projects in this month’s craft collection.

Oh I now realize this is a one sided card. Sorry
You can make it one side or folded with a blank back if you like. Your choice.
Do I need to get a scoring tool for my cricut for this project?
I can double-check with Emily, but I do not think you need one.
There are extra pieces in the hand and flower card (an extra left hand and a larger heart in the center) when I import it into Silhouette. What are they for? It would be helpful if we could attach a photo
Hi Cheri. I just checked the file in Design Space (I don’t have the silhouette software), and I didn’t see any extras. The hands are two layers, and the heart has two layers. Is that what you are seeing? If not, I know that on occasion, Cricut throws in some unwanted artifacts. If it looks like an extra, maybe hide it from cutting?
Love, love, love the retro design! Thank you Lia and team.
So much fun this month! Emily designed this card and did such a lovely job.
