I am in a pink and red mood lately, and the Valentine cards I made this year reflect that. I have a new package of vellum I have not used before, and I thought I’d give it a try. I got out pink card stock, red stamp pads, and a page of red suede paper. The heart cut outs have a nice textured finish, but it doesn’t show up well in photographs.
I stamped a pretty rose on the pink paper, and a greeting on the vellum.
Punch two holes at the top, and thread a red ribbon through the holes, tying a bow to hold the layers together.
Recycling elements from other cards gives more interest to flat papers. I mounted the recycled cut-outs on burgundy card stock.
This one is for my friend who likes to mountain bike in warmer weather.
I like the glittery sparkle on the flowers on this one.
And this one too.
These will get mailed out, and I have a few more to stamp before Valentine’s Day. Happy Stamping!

Really pretty cards Carole, we have never celebrated Valentine´s day here, don´t think DH knows it exists 😦

VERY NICE! I need to get busy if I”m going to get cards made this year.
The cards are sooo pretty! They are tempting me to begin another hobby…but I must resist! You really put a lot of work into each one.
Nice cards! My favorite is that with the bike and the little dog – it’s so living…

Hi! thank you for stopping over at my place. Your cards are fantastic! I am very much looking forward to read you from now onward.
Such a talented person!!!! Pretty cards.
Now THOSE are Valentine’s from the heart.
Those look SUPER cool!
Beautiful cards. You are very creative
Wonderful cards. Gave me a couple of ideas for making my own.
Great ideas! I knew I saved those cards for a purpose. I like the ways you combine various elements. As a novice card maker, I am constantly learning. I need “more stamps” with messages now! 🙂 (I have been cutting on my scan n’ cut and making things too, but can’t share until AFTER the holiday!)
