I started with the large heart from the Polka Dot Party wood veneer shapes package and some striped paper from BoBunny's "Elf Magic" collection. I traced the heart onto the paper, and then again about 1/4" outside the lines and cut on the larger outline to get the opening. I stitched around the opening and around the card edges, then adhered the paper to a white card base. I painted the heart red, then covered it with glue and red glitter and adhered it to the card, centering it in the opening. I used a fine tip black pen to write "love" in various spots on the lines of the patterned paper and added a red ribbon bow to finish it off.
Sometimes you need a Valentine's Day card that's not quite so red/pink/lovey dovey. For this card, I used the Echo Park Fall Reflections collection. I backed the sentiment sticker with brown cardstock and trimmed around it to leave a narrow mat, then adhered it with foam adhesive to a piece of patterned paper. I added a couple of chipboard hearts, coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles (my favorite Stickles ever!) and a brown bow.
The last card uses papers from Bella Blvd's "Daily Chevies" line and BoBunny's "Elf Magic" line. I cut two different size squares of patterned paper and adhered them to white cardstock, using a Maya Road heart bubble clip at the top. The alphabet stickers are also from the "Elf Magic" collection, and three wooden hearts finish off the card. I added pink Stickles to the hearts and the inside of the heart on the metal clip.
I hope you're inspired to use your stash and create some Valentine's Day cards!
