Time is getting short, so you might want ideas for quick valentines such as these easy valentines to make with the Sending Love Paper Stack. These valentines are quick to make because I just used a 4″ x 4″ Whisper White card base (4″ x 8″ folded in half) and added a pattern from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, each piece cut 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″.
The greeting is stamped in Real Red Ink with a stamp in the Sealed With Love Stamp Set. If you don’t own this stamp set, you probably have another “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamp somewhere in your stash or something you can use. On three of these greetings I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies which I love! And then on two of them I added a layer behind the Stitched Shape. The other one, the circle on the top card, I left plain. The die cut heart is made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies with a larger heart layer out of Silver Glimmer Paper underneath. On the other card, the squares are made with the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.
If you need to make a bunch of valentines, it’s easiest to pick one design and make it assembly-line fashion. Assembly-line fashion means you cut all the card bases – then you score all the card bases – then you fold all the card-bases-then you cut all the paper layers then you stamp all the greetings- and so on. Do not make one whole card and then start on the second one, if they are all the same design. It’s almost like you get muscle-memory when you are cutting or stamping or folding and it goes really quickly.
For a little extra embellishments, on the heart card I added three little Rhinestone Jewels just for a little extra pop. On the square, I tied a little bow with the new Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack in the Occasions Catalog and stuck on the top of the greeting with a Glue Dot.
If you set up your little stamping station, you can make a bunch of valentines similar to these easy valentines pretty quickly. Don’t just rush though, enjoy the moment! Enjoy doing your stamping!
