A Sweet Conversations Valentine Card to tell Your Love Story

  • Bouquet of Love Dies and Floral Heart Dies also work with Sweet Conversations Stamp Set and Dies From Stampin' Up!

Every love story is different.  The fun of creating Valentines is to fine colors and textures that express the warmth and love you have for someone you've chosen to create your love story with.  Today I've used a rich array of textured papers, ribbons and hearts to create a unique valentine for someone special.  I chose Misty Moonlight as my accent color and then chose papers with printed textures to add interest.  I used heart dies from the Floral Heart Dies and from the Bouquet of Life Dies, and labels and Sentiment from the Sweet Heart Dies and Sweet Conversations Stamp Set.  I used papers from the In Good Taste Paper Pack, along with vellum from the Vellum 12 X 12 Layering Designs ,along with Frayed Ribbon and Bakers Twine to create my card.  Handmade Valentines create special memories your loved ones will cherish long after the holiday has passed.

Handmade Valentine with Hearts and textured paper, 3/4 Frayed White ribbon and white twine

To create this card, I began with a basecard of Misty Moonlight Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the prints from the 12" X 12" In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  Then a banner made from another prints from In Good Taste, and finally a Stitched rectangle of Misty Moonlight using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Then I created two heart images.  The one on the left is another print from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I used the large heart from the Bouquet of Love Dies to die cut this heart.  For the heart on the right, I used the heart from the Floral Heat Dies.  I cut one in Misty Moonlight.  The second I cut from one of the prints in the Vellum 12" X 12" Layering Designs pack.  It created a lovely lighter shade of blue heart that matched the Misty Moonlight accents perfectly.  I added a bow from White Baker's twine on the Vellum heart.  

Valentine Card created using heat dies and papers from Stampin' Up!

I used the Seet Heart Dies to die cut a label for the Happy valentine's day sentiment from the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set.  I stamped it in Misty Moonlight.  To complete my cards, I added a piece of 3/4" White Frayed Ribbon, a gold foil accent from a retired set of butterfly dies, and then added a couple of Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.  Below is a close up of the hearts showing the design in the Vellumn and more of the textures in the papers used for this card.
