Easy Valentine Card

Here’s an easy Valentine card you could duplicate in mass if you needed several valentines.  It’s also perfect for that special friend or special someone that has a piece of your heart!  It uses the new beautiful “Falling Petals” embossing folder (see image below) with petals that resemble hearts.  I hope you can see the petal impressions in the white cardstock.  Pictures just don’t do it justice!  The simple red glitter heart in the corner cutout pops on the white background to make a classic valentine.

Start with a white card base 3 1/2″ x 5″.    The center piece is white cardstock measuring 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ embossed with the Falling Petals embossing folder.  Attach it to the 3 1/2″ x 5″ Real Red cardstock and punch a 3/4″ circle in the bottom right corner.  Most circle punches won’t go through all 3 layers so be sure you punch the two top layers first.  Lay the top 2 layers piece on the card front and punch the circle through the card front, then attach the top layers piece to the card front with Fast Fuse or tape runner.  Use the “Love Notes” framelit die (or a punch you have) to cut  a small heart out of red glimmer paper and attach it to the center of the circular opening with dimensionals (pop dots). You can adjust the circle opening to the size of the heart you punch or cut out.

Stamp your favorite sentiment on the inside.  I liked “My Heart Smiles” as I’m sending it to a special friend.  The envelope flap is decorated with a sweet design from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set.  That set also has a pretty “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment that would fit nicely inside this card instead of the one I chose.   The stamp set and framelit dies can be purchased at a savings when bought as a bundle called “Sealed with Love Bundle”. It includes 27 photopolymer stamps and 14 dies – my favorite being a tiny envelope with heart paper insert.  Images of these products are below along with a link to detailed info about each.
