I spent the weekend making valentines. It was so cold out even our sweet dog, Bo, didn’t want to go out! He is so funny…you have to practically drag him out the door when it’s cold or rainy. I bribe him with treats. My husband takes him walking when it’s cold out. (I am just like Bo and don’t want to go out and freeze! LOL)
Here’s a look at some of the valentine cards I made.
I love the sentiments in the Country Bouquet stamp set!!! This set can be used for all your valentines (friends, family, coworkers, etc.) I can see using “Just wanted to say…” all year long for many different occasions! This set has a lot of versatility and I knew I would be adding it to my collection.
The Country Bouquet Punch which is part of the bundle is backordered until mid April but I actually found I didn’t need it to create some pretty cards. I used the hearts from the Heart Punch Pack to punch from the beautiful Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper. You could also stamp and fussy the hearts or cut the hearts from the DSP if you like. So many choices!
Each of my cards are a little different. The card base and layers are all the same. I played around with adding different elements. Here’s a close up of each card.
I love this petal pink ribbon. It is so soft and adds a wonderful texture to this card. I added a mint macaron leaf I punched from the Bough Punch.
I love using this nontraditional balmy blue for a valentine! The mini heart was stamped from the stamp set and cut out. My favorite piece on this card is the pretty scallop at the bottom from the Painted Labels Dies. There are so many great dies in that set which is why it is one of my favorite die sets!
For this card I used some of the hearts and leaves from the Designer Series Paper to embellish the front. I also added that pretty die again from the Painted labels Dies.
Here’s the basic details to make these cards.
