Stampin’ Up! Simple Stamping Valentine’s Card

My husband likes to get my handmade (for him) cards, but he isn’t really impressed with a lot of frills, bells and whistles. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this card was made with him in mind. He’s not afraid of red hearts and I added the black for masculine appeal. Simple…no die cutting, glitter, or embossing. Here’s how it happened…

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and the hearts from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set (2 first generation and a second generation) in Real Red Ink on a piece of 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I back it with a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day heart from the Heartfelt Stamp Set (the one in the Forever Lovely set was too tiny for this purpose) in Real Red Ink. To add the black scallop I punched a heart from a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock with the “straight edge” punch from the Heart Punch Pack (this I tossed into my reserve stash) and then punched the “scallop edge” to allow me to align the two front visual. I’m pleased with how that tired out. So, no frills, bells or whistles so I added a simple 1/2″ strip of Real Red Cardstock to the bottom.

I decided Mr Man could handle three (3) Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels on the front…skipped the Wink of Stella though. 😉 Links to the supplies used are listed below. Thanks for joining me. Please comment or send me an email if you have an questions or if I can be of help.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Window Card

I used the Heartfelt Bundle and the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog (linked below) to make this sweet Valentines card.

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I used the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder directly on the Front Panel, then punched the scalloped heart from the Heart Punch Pack in the right corner.

I stamped the greeting from the Heartfelt Stamp Set in Real Red ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White (one of those 1″ strips from trimming down a 12×12 sheet) and after adhering it with Liquid Adhesive punched it being careful to line up with the previous punched opening.

I added a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock on the inside of the card. I used the scallop heart punch to punch the heart from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. I checked the placement through the window on the front and then added the surrounding images. I closed the card and used liquid adhesive to adhere the punched heart through the opening for accurate placement.

The final touch was three (3) Pearl Basic Jewels on the card front. Links to the supplies used are listed below. Please comment or send me an email if you have an questions.
