With Valentine’s Day only two weeks away I thought it was about time I made some cards for the occasion. Whether you celebrate the day or not, you don’t have to wait till the 14th of February to tell someone how you feel. So here are some cards that while they are perfect for Valentine’s, they are also perfect to give any other day of the year.
So I picked up the Lawn Fawn ‘My Silly Valentine’ stamp and matching die set in my most recent haul video (you can watch it here). These stamps are so simple and sweet I knew I wanted to keep the cards I made with them simple and sweet also. I started by choosing three different cardstocks that matched the three images I wanted to use; the apple, banana and bunny along with their matching sentiments.
Using the Waverly Framed Die Tag Die Set from Mama Elephant, I cut my three borders and centre piece’s. I then stamped out my images and coloured them all in using copic markers (see below for colours used). For any image I was planning to colour I used the Momento Ink Pad, as it doesn’t bleed when using alcohol markers. For the rest of the stamping I use Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black. I then used the matching die set to cut out the apple’s and the banana.
I put all three of them together using a combination of double sided tap and foam squares to give them some dimension. For the card bases, I just cut down some Neenah Classic Crest cardstock in solar white and scored it so I had an A2 size card. For some of them I have stamped ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ on the inside, while leaving some of them blank. That’s it! Simple Valentine’s Days.
Thanks so much for reading and watching everyone! I really do appreciate it. 🙌🏼
