A Valentine Card to Fall in Love With

Be sure to read to the end! (Hint Hint)

Fall in love with this sweet valentine card made with the Sealed with Love Bundle.  This oh so cute bundle will steal your heart with the precious tiny envelope with love notes inside!  You’ll also find the perfect stamps for a variety of valentines and the darling arrows!!! – be still my heart!  Honestly, they are so cute I want to design a card with just gold arrows!  Maybe I will!

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base then adhered a 4″ x 5 1/4″ red and white rectangle on top.   (I used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack).  A large heart was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Thinlits and embossed with the Falling Petals embossing folder.  You’ll love this folder – it looks like little hearts falling like snow and is a 6 x 6 folder so can be used for larger cards.  The tiny envelope is my favorite part.  It is cut with the Love Notes Framelit Dies as is the note inside, the red heart, and the gold arrow.

Here’s a similar card with a closeup of the embellishments.  I used pop dots (Stampin’ Dimensionals) to pop up the red heart so the arrow could go underneath.  The tiny note card that goes inside the envelope is topped with a row of red glitter hearts.  Red and white 1/8″ ribbon is stapled to the bottom of the heart under the envelope.  The “Love Notes” sentiment at the bottom is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White card stock.  I punched it out with the Decorative Label punch so that the stamping was in the top half of the label.  Then I cut the label in half and adhered it to the bottom of the red printed paper.

The inside of the card uses the “Happy Valentines Day” sentiment from the same stamp set.  I’ve shown you another option below. If you want to make a thank you card, there’s another stamp set called Suite Sentiments that has the “Many mini thanks” sentiment and a tiny note with “Thanks” written over and over on it that fits in the tiny envelope!  So cute and useful for any occasion!  Any of the “suite” stamp sets have a wide variety of sentiments within the same stamp set.  This one works not only for Thank Yous, but for graduation, birthday, wedding, Easter, Father’s Day, friendship, and general greetings.  It coordinates with 7 different suites in the Occasions Catalog.  “Suite” Sentiments – get it?

Finally, did you notice the arrow piercing all the hearts?  It’s so easy to get that look.  Just cut the shaft of the arrow into 1 or more pieces  and glue the pieces onto the hearts as shown  The spaces between the shaft pieces give the illusion that the arrow is going in and out of the heart!  Easy peasy!
