A Handmade Disney Valentine and A Galentine Card

With Valentine's Day this Friday I have two more Valentine Cards to show you.  If you missed my other Valentine cards I made this year, check them out HERE and HERE.

My darling granddaughter has officially entered the Disney Princess stage of life, and I'm sure it's all my fault.  I introduced her to Snow White when I was taking care of her last summer while mommy was in the hospital with baby Atticus.  To help occupy her during long car rides I would play Disney music videos on my phone.  Her parents don't have data with their phones, so she thought I had some type of magic phone that it could play cartoons.  Of all the videos I showed her, she loved the Snow White ones the most.  My husband thinks it's because I sound like Snow White when I talk (I really do!  I've always been embarrassed about my "funny" voice).  I say it's probably because her mother looks just like Snow White, with her dark hair and porcelain skin.  Or, maybe it's both.  Who knows? Wouldn't it be great if we could read the mind of a two year old?  Whatever the reason Alethea loved Snow White, it brought her comfort when she was apart from her parents for the very first time, and that's the most important thing.



To make my card, I actually had a Snow White stamp.  You can find Disney stamps on the Internet or in craft stores.  Mine is from Inkadinkado, but it's pretty old so I'm not sure if it's still available.  I'm sure you could also print an image off your computer and cut it out (just don't sell it and you probably won't be breaking any copy right laws) or cut images out of Disney coloring books.


I stamped my Snow White image on a separate piece of card stock, colored it in with Copic markers, and fussy cut it out.  I googled images of Snow White so I knew what colors to use.  I popped her up on dimensionals on the main image panel.

The two oval panels were cut with Spellbinder's Nestabilities.  I stamped a sentiment directly onto the main image panel.  I also stamped some flowers on to the main image panel and colored them to match Snow White's dress.  I also stamped two flowers on to separate card stock, colored them in, cut them out, and glued them on the main image panel.

I ran a yellow piece of card stock through my Cuttlebug to emboss hearts on it.  A yellow Prima flower and red ribbon finished the card.



Once the ribbon was wrapped around the yellow card base, I adhered the whole thing to a white card base.


My next card is a "Galentine Card" I made for one of my very best friends who is going through a difficult time.  I hope it encourages her.


This card is made with a die.  All the little hearts are partially cut by the die.  I bent a few hearts out, colored the hearts with pink and red makers, and then put some Stickles on them too.


Because when you bend the hearts out you can see what's behind them, I added a red card stock base behind the white base.


I stamped a sentiment beneath the heart and added a few more stamped hearts around the sentiment.
The entire card was then glued to a white card base.


And finally, I wanted to show you a couple of pictures of Alethea receiving her Valentine box from me.  I had to send it a bit early based on my schedule,  otherwise it would have been a day late.  Her mother said she was "Overjoyed" by the treats I sent her and that she loved the Snow White card and started singing the "Hi Ho" song.


You can see how happy she is in these photos by these little, simple gifts.  It gives me so much joy to see her so happy.  


Have A Great Day and a Great Valentine's Day too!  Take some time this weekend to show the loved ones in your life how much you care.
