Hand Made Valentines for Friends

Valentines to Share the Love

Hand made valentine made with Painted with Love Designer Paper from www.lyndafalconer.stampinup.netIt actually snowed here in Mississippi this morning and everything shut down .  It feels like a vacation day – and a perfect day for making  valentines for friends!  Here’s a beautiful valentine for the more sophisticated crowd (adults?) that goes together in a flash.

The secret to this valentine is the gorgeous brush stroke designer paper with gold foil and some of my favorite colors!  It’s a new specialty  paper called “Painted With Love” by Stampin’ Up.  There ‘s a whole suite that goes with it including the gold vinyl stickers and gold tinsel trim I used here.  The new narrow Whisper White cards and envelopes are the perfect starting point for a hand made valentine for your friends.

Here’s How

  • The valentine is made from the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Thick Whisper White note card from the new narrow envelope and note card set.  The envelope measures 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and the set includes 20 cards and envelopes.
  • Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers embellish the Sweet & Sassy heart on this hand made valentine by Lynda Falconer, Stampin' Up Demonstrator at www.crafterinspired.comThe first layer is  4 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ cut from the small brush stroke designed page of the Painted with Love Designer Specialty Paper by Stampin’ Up.
  • The 2″ hearts are cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits on a Big Shot Machine.  There are 2 hearts – one Whisper White cardstock and 1 vellum.  I decorated the vellum heart with a gold vinyl heart and “love” sticker then hid tape runner behind the stickers on the back of the vellum heart to attach it to the white heart.  Notice I attached it a little off center to the right of the whisper white heart so the vellum shows more.
  • Next, the white heart was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, an 18″length of mini gold tinsel was tied around the top of the card into a bow as shown.
  • On the inside, I stamped the sentiment “You warm my heart” from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set

I like to offer my customers valentine designs for friends and family that aren’t too mushy!  We love lots of people for lots of different reasons and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to share the love!
