How to Create Valentine Love Greeting Cards

Valentine Love Greeting CardsWorkshop Theme of the Month: Valentine Love Greeting Cards

February is love month, so it’s no surprise that the workshops I ran this month had a theme by request of my class attendees. They wanted to know how to make valentine love greeting cards for work, family, and friends. So, I came up with a few ideas that were easy to make and duplicate if anyone wanted to make cards en masse.

Supplies Needed

There are a few supplies you’ll need to create these love note inspired cards:

Embellishments

  • Wooden hearts and flowers
  • Mini paper clips
  • Ribbon in real red, white or pool party
  • Gold metallic thread
  • Recollections heart shaped doilies

Paper

  • Card stock and patterned paper
    • I used real red, whisper white and pool party solid colour card stock, and gold metallic card stock for the arrows.
    • On some of the cards I made I also used sending love designer series paper stack from Stampin’ Up!

Stamps and Die Cuts

  • Sealed with love photopolymer stamp set
  • Love notes framelits dies
  • Stamp from Michaels (love themed; I used “I love you a bushel and a peck”)
  • Big Shot machine with cutting pads and base plate
  • Ink pads: real red, pool party, whisper white
  • Stampin’ Up! stampin scrub and stampin’ mist to clean ink off stamps

Adhesives

  • Glue dots
  • Fast fuse adhesive (for longer strips, instead of using lots of glue dots)

Valentine Love Greeting Cards – An Easy Tutorial Step by Step

The colour palette I used is so simple, and yet so pretty! It’s not a combination I initially thought would look great, but it does! I use Stampin’ Up! inks, so these colours are their company’s colour names: real red, whisper white, and pool party. If you wanted to use similar colours, you could think of them as white, Santa Suit red and a pale blue or blue-green.
