If you need a quick and easy handmade Valentine Card, the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin’ Up! will get the job done fast! Take a look at this sample:
You’ll love how easy it is to make the rainbow background, stamping the “brushstroke” in several colors. This card uses Rich Razzleberry, Strawberry Slush, Calypso Coral, and Daffodil Delight, all of which give a bright, saturated effect to the card design. A Valentine card needs a heart or two, and the stamp set has the perfect informal heart to complement the background.
A bit of Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon tied in a knot instead of a bow, means it’s not too girlie to give to the man you love, but any woman would welcome this expression of love and friendship as well. The Happy Hearts Embossing Folder (from the spring Occasions Catalog) creates the perfect background for any Valentine, and you’ll want to keep making cards just to keep embossing hearts! You’ll get a different effect on a softer, pastel color, like in the photo from Stampin’ Up! Or in the Painted Petals card in this post: Using 3/16″ Mats.
The debossed side of the folder gives a nice look, too. It’s a little subtler, but still effective, as in this Sympathy Card.
