Over the next three weeks I will be sharing handmade Valentine Cards I have made for friends and family. I'm not going to give away which cards are for who, because I never know who's snooping on my blog and might see their card before they receive it. 🥰
For the two cards I'm showing today, I used the same layout, papers, and colors, but different images. The image used in this card is an old retired Stampin' Up! card called "Pun Fun".
I stamped the image and colored it in with Copic markers then used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut a plain square panel out. I then popped that panel up on a heart panel also cut with a Spellbinder's die. Then using a larger square die, I cut a third panel out of pink.
For the background, I embossed a white card stock panel with a heart Cuttlebug folder and then adhered that panel to a black card panel to make everything pop. I finished the card by wrapping a think pink ribbon through two of the open hearts and tying it with a bow.
My next card uses all the same dies, but a different embellishment, image, and color.
The image in this card was a free stamp I received when I purchased a card making magazine years ago. I don't normally purchase magazines (who needs to when everything is free on the web now?), but when the stamp set is the price of the magazine, why not?
I followed all the same principles that I did in making the first card, except this time I used a red panel, and I added a cute red heart button. I put the sentiment on a tiny tag.
Whenever I create a card I really like, sometimes while all the same supplies are already out, I'll quickly make a few more cards. If you ever need to mass produce cards, this is a great way to save time, rather than making every card unique.
