I hope you are well and holding up through the continued pandemic emergency. I can’t say it isn’t wearing on me, but I am trying to stay positive. One of the things I decided to do was make some Valentine’s Day cards for my grandkids. I wanted a fun, simple card that could be made in multiples without too much work. This is what I came up with:
I started with a card base of 11.5 inches by 4.25 inches, folded- some in Blushing Bride (pink) and others in Pool Party (blue). Inside, Happy Valentine’s Day was stamped (Meant to Be stamp set). Then I cut the printed paper from the Snail Mail designer series paper to 4 by 5.25 inches, and adhered that to the base with Tombow Multipurpose Glue. I cut two hearts for each card, one in blue and one white with a die from the Stitched to be Mine diecut set, stamped “for you” (from the So Sentimental stamp set, because it was tiny) in Real Red on each white heart, and adhered a resin heart on each of those. The blue hearts were glued directly on the card, choosing a spot that wouldn’t interfere too much with the snail designs. Then I adhered the white hearts, slightly offset, with foam dimensional tape. It took so little time to put them all together. What do you think?
I hope you are inspired to make some Valentine’s Day cards, whether for your sweetie, kids, grandkids, or the sweet neighbor next door. It’s always a good day to spread a little sunshine, and let people know that they are important to you!
