I am in love----with making Valentine cards! I am really enjoying all of my Valentine stamps right now. I thought I would post photos of the cards I made for the Papertrey Valentine swap and one other card. I can share my swap cards since I know they were both received by Janelle and Tammy.
I recently purchased some Moda fabric and realized that the colors are a near perfect match for Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush!!! I had to incorporate this fabric into some of my cards. Here I used 1/2 of a Charm Square and stitched it to my card and embellished with a little paper heart. I love the look of fabric on cards and plan to do a lot more of this in the future.
This card uses the box image from Text Boxed, which I only recently purchased. I masked off the box and filled it with images from Simple Valentine and polka dots. I also incorporated some more Moda fabric. I used my Yo-Yo template to make the little flower and embellished it with Papertrey vintage buttons. Making these little yo-yos is super easy and makes a fun embellishment for your cards. I also saw a template for a heart shape that I might have to try out. I also remembered that my sewing machine has some decorative heart stitches so I added that to the bottom of the card and set it off with red glitter strips above and below.
Finally, here is a super quick card that I made that has no stamping!!!
I must have been channeling Mish Wooderson on my last trip to the scrapbook store because I also found this gorgeous Making Memories paper and thought it would make some great quick and easy cards. It is almost too pretty to cut into! I added some stitching around the blocks and a few embellishments and it's done. If you're short on time for making cards I recommend looking for some patterned paper to cut up and use. This would also be a great way to make multiple cards if you needed a bunch of Valentine cards for your child's school class.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend.
