I am often so busy creating that I don’t always get to photograph and blog about each card or gift I make. To me what’s most important is to share that handmade kindness and make someone smile. Today I have three different Valentine’s Day cards I made this year which I did manage to take a photograph or two before sending.
My first card today was for my son. It was made using products from the All My Love Suite.
My son loves to snowboard and he is heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a ski vacation. I know he will appreciate the little gift I tucked inside to enjoy the slopes in Vail! This card is clean & simple and full of love!
Yesterday I shared one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Part of My Story. I promised to show you another card I made using the same sentiment. (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE to view.) I love that this sentiment can be used any time of the year. I enjoyed making these simple Valentine cards for my friends!
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White note cards & envelopes which made creating quick, easy, and economical! Great for when having to make multiples! I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut the hearts (just like I did for all of today’s cards). These dies are gorgeous with stitching and scalloped details and can be used year round for wedding, anniversary, or other lovely occasions!
Check out the long scalloped die at the bottom. You can use this die to add detail and stitching on an envelope flap and much more! How cool is that?! (Special thanks to Mary Fish for sharing that tip!)
Next, here’s a pop up gift card holder I made for my daughter. Her college apartment is across the street from Panera so I know she will enjoy this treat.
I love how the heart gift card coordinates with the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. Check back tomorrow and I will share all the details how to make this pop up gift card holder.
Previously I shared a project I made for my husband. I’m giving him “the key to my heart”. If you missed that project you can view it HERE.
I hope you are surrounded by love today. I am reminded of a simple poem I read to my students recently… “There are silver ships, There are gold ships, But the best of all is friendship!”
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
