Valentine Paper

Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking. Valentine's already? I am in a ladies group at my church who plan to send Valentine's to our nursing home and shut in people. I volunteered to make the cards for them. Better get started since I need 40. 

 I purchased a paper share from SU's Mini Catalogue. There are a few DSPs in the catalogue that are not Christmas. You probably wouldn't think of Blackberry Bliss DSP as Valentines but this background paper works well.

The heart paper and polka dots are from the scrap box. I think of lace when making Valentine's so used a Fiskar border punch to make a lacy edge on the heart paper. 

The LOVE die cut is from Marianne Design. It reminds me of a sculpture by Robert Indiana. This is the one at Indiana University. Next time I'll try snipping off the "O" and put it at an angle. 

Inside the card, I did a computer sentiment and then lightly stamped a heart from SU's retired Hearts Aflutter.

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches 

I actually made 2 other cards with this sketch and posted them earlier in the week but forgot to link up to Tuesday Morning Sketches. You can see them here


  1. Your Valentine card is beautiful! And I LOVE the heart on the inside. It adds such a special touch to your sentiment, which is also great. I may have to steal it for my own Valentines. So nice of you to make the cards for shut-ins and nursing home residents. I know they will be appreciated.

  2. Wonderful card! And what a blessing to the shut ins your cards will be!
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches
