Valentines Day Cards are probably my favorite cards to make.
I mean, who doesn’t LOVE, love? 🙂 X’s and O’s, red pink and white, hearts and Cupid? Yep, Valentines Day Cards are definitely my favorite!
I wanted to showcase a few of the Valentines Day cards I have made for this years holiday. These will be available in my shop at the end of the day. ( If you are more of a Do-It-Yourselfer, Check out this post for a card tutorial I did for Mother’s Day last year)
When it comes to card making, I am a simple kind of girl. I tend to stick to an simple A2 size card bases (4.25 by 5.50 inches) and only a few layers of embellishments. While I LOVE the gorgeous cards I see created (check out this beautiful card and this one) by other super talented paper crafters, my sweet spot is more Clean and Simple.
These cute Penguins are one of my favorite cards. I gave a similar one to my Husband a couple years ago. It uses one of my favorite color combos Red, Black and White, and the funniest little sentiment. The Stamps are An Inkadinkado Stamp Set called “Animal Hearts”. I colored in the hearts with a red sharpie marker and added Glossy Accents to the hearts. I also kept it simple with the embellishments. Just red Washi with white hearts and black Washi with White Polka Dots. I got both at either Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, I am so bad I keeping up with where I get everything from, but I will always try and let you know if I do remember or have a link.
This card I made using lots of Kraft cardstock and a simple, but really cute ticket paper from an all occasions paper stack at Hobby Lobby. Kraft is a really fun cardstock to work with, it lend itself to both masculine and feminine cards it also works really well with lots of color combinations. My favorite Kraft paper is this one from Michael’s. It’s thick and holds up well as a card base. I have even cut it in my Silhouette Cameo and it help up very well. On this card I decided to finish the inside with a white layer and a small strip of the ticket paper on the bottom. I tend to leave my inside blank for the person sending the card to write their own sentiment, but sometimes I do jazz up the inside. Like the inside of this card
I did some negative space stamping around a die cut and stamped Happy Valentine’s Day with enough room to write your own sentiment.
I went a little more masculine with this one. With a chevron embossing and just a simple i heart u sentiment. The letters are glitter Thickers and the heart I stamped the same as the inside and cut out to place on the front. I really enjoy this Red, Black, and White theme!
And finally, I have this cute card perfect for that BFF of yours.
This one has a white Card Base with Red and White pattern paper peeking through some die cut hears. My favorite part are the sequins! They are so shiny in person and add just a hint of bling.
Sometimes still shots just don’t do things justice so I recorded a quick walk though on my YouTube Channel. Watch below
