Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day

It’s time to get our heart cards ready! Even though any time is a great time to send a heart card, if you are one to give and send Valentines then it’s a good time to start getting ready. If you want to give a card to a partner, to family, to friends, to people you want to send a smile to, to customers (any business), or to “all of the above” – we have a lot of ideas and great products.

Let’s take a look at today’s card, inspired by a sample in the catalog on page 10.

Happy Valentine’s Day 


Basic White

Highland Heather

Real Red


Card Base – Basic White 6 ¾” x 5 ½”, score at 3 ⅜”

Background – Highland Heather  5 ⅜” x 3 ¼”

Real Red – 3 ⅞” x 2 ⅛”

DSP Sweet Talk  4 ⅜” x 1 ½”

Basic White 5 ½” x 1 ¼” (for stamping and die cutting hearts) 

Real Red 2 ⅞” x ⅝” 

Basic White 2 ¾” x ½” 


  1. Cut Basic White Card Base at 6 ¾” x 5 ½”, and score at 3 ⅜”.
  2. Using the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder, emboss the Highland Heather background layer and Attach this to the Basic White card base.
  3. On Basic White cardstock, stamp the heart once each using the following color inks – Blushing Bride, Pool Party, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather. (The sample uses the heart that fits with the “Luv U” outline stamp)  Die cut these hearts using the Sweet Hearts Die.
  4. Attach the hearts along the top edge of the DSP starting at the left edge.  Hearts are touching, but not overlapping. 
  5. Using Real Red ink stamp the “Happy Valentine’s Day” onto the small Basic White Strip and adhere this to the Real Red layer.
  6. Tie Real Red ribbon into a bow around the DSP.
  7. Attach the DSP to the Real Red layer, and attach this to the card, leaving enough space at the bottom for the greeting.
  8. Adhere the layered sentiment to the lower part of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  9. Using a 2” circle punch, punch out a Granny Apple Green circle.
  10. Decorate the inside of the card.

This is not a common card size so I created a matching envelope.


*DSP: 7 ½” x 7 ½”


  1. Score on one side at ½” and 7”
  2. Turn and score along the other side at 2½” and 6”
  3. Cut off all 4 corners at the score marks. Fold Along the length of the envelope at the score marks and adhere closed.  Fold up the ½” at the bottom and adhere closed.  Corner round each of the corners on the 1½” flap.  This is the opening of your envelope.

*NOTE:  You can also use a heavier weight (32#) printer paper for the envelope if you wish.
