Hello friends! Happy to be here with you to share some quick and easy Valentine’s Day cards using goodies from the Elle’s Studio January extras. Last year I didn’t make many cards so I made a pretty big dent in my card stash. Therefore, now my stash is really hurting for some ready made cards for all types of occasions.
One of my favorite extras this month is the new paper pad. I always adore the paper Elle creates because it is useful for so many different projects. For today’s project I used the paper pad to create 3 fun Valentine’s Day cards.
Here is a look at the cards!
Card #1: Super Simple! Let the paper do the talking!
For this card I let the patterned paper do the talking. I cut the paper to 3×3 and used the pattern as a guide for the letter stickers. Simple and dimensional. Take a look at the papers in your collection and let them inspire you to create a simple card.
Card #2: Repeated Stamping!
For the second card I used the stamp set as inspiration. I used the sketchy heart and created a repeated stamp pattern on the base. Next, using the hearts from the die cut pack I stitched down the center or side of the hearts to create interest and dimension. After stitching I pulled on the edges of the hearts to make them pop! Lastly, I added a mixed sentiment by using a combination of wood veneers and a dimensional label sticker. What stamps can you use to create a repeated stamp pattern on your cards?
Card #3: Patterns with Paper & Stitching.
The last card was created by cutting .50 inch strips of paper and combining them on the card base to create a pattern. Keeping the lines simple and clean I stitched down the center of the paper strips. To create an embellishment cluster I combined a label sticker, bundle of thread and puffy heart sticker. Try cutting up paper in your stash and combine the pattern with a bit of stitching- what will you create?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspired you to create some fun cards. Products used are linked below. Have a beautiful day!
