My first Valentine Card for this year is a pretty easy one.
The stamped images are all embossed. I am a huge fan of this, since it not only makes the image “pop” off if the card, but the difference in texture and dimension makes the card seem like there is more to it than there actually is.
There isn’t much to this card, but here’s what I did…
How To Make This Card
The heart and phrase were stamped using VersaMark and white embossing powder.
Once the powder is heated, it turns into a shiny dimensional image (I love this stuff!).
Supplies used on this Valentine’s Day card are:
- Cardstock – Stampin’ Up Basic Black, Real Rede
- Ink – VersaMark and white embossing powder
- Stamp Sets – UNKNOWN – these 2 small stamps were given to me as part of a door prize. I do not know what Stampin’ Up set these were originally part of, but they have ‘1994’ on the label. If anyone knows which set these were a part of, please leave me a comment with the name.
I almost always make my cards with Stampin’ Up products, but you can use this design with other stamps. You only need a small heart stamp and a small sentiment.
Other DIY Valentine Cards
I live in Brentwood, Tennessee and write about fun things to see & do there. I also enjoy using rubber stamps and scrapbooking materials to make my own cards. I use Stampin’ Up products for a lot of my handmade cards.
