Paint the raised heart shapes pink and white, and use the stamp to create patterns on the cover of your card. Make sure that there is enough paint on the stamp each time before you place it on the paper.

NOTE: This card can be used for other occasions, just carve different shapes into your apple. Other colours of cardboard can also be used.

TIP: When putting glitter onto your glue, pinch a little bit of glitter at a time and place it over your pattern. Allow to stick for a few seconds, and then gently tap your card over the glitter container, to ensure tidiness.
