Quick Valentine LOVE Card Set

 Hello from design team member Heidi!

Today I want to share an idea to quickly make 4 elegant Valentines.  

First choose 5 patterned papers. I chose ones that have subtle patterns, but this would work with bolder patterns, as well.

Then stamp your LOVE stamp on 4 of these.  Cut the other patterned paper into 4 2.5 inch squares. (If you are using a bold patterned paper, you may wish to white or silver heat emboss the stamp instead.)

Cut out all the letters individually, leaving a slight border.  With a black alcohol marker, create a faux matte around each letter.  (This sounds fussy, but it really doesn’t take much time, especially compared to actually cutting and glueing a black mat.). Also use a colored marker to color in each letter.  I used a dusky purple marker.

Mix up the patterns and arrange the letters on each 2.5 inch square of patterned paper. I highly recommend using liquid glue for this part so that you have time to move the letters around evenly!  Also, matte this on a 2 3/8 inch black cardstock. 

I decided to go over the letters with a sakura glitter pen to bring out the letters and make it look more valentiney.

Not just use this as the focal image of your card!  I just embossed some pink cardstock, added some ribbon and some glitter glue to finish this easy cards!  You could finish them in a simpler way or more ornate way, depending on how much time you have!

Here are my finished cards!

This stamp is part of a wedding stamp set in the I Brake for Stamps store:
