Valentine's cards by Patty Folchert


Sometimes simple is better, as was the case with this Love x five card. It features one of the new stamps from the Jillibean Soup/Hampton Art – Heart Healthy Red Bean stamp set. The love sentiment does not have to be limited to Valentines day, as you can see.

Love x 5 card by Patty Folchert

The card base is plain white cardstock trimmed to the exact size of the stamp. Then card was stamped four times in aqua ink and then once in the middle with darker turquoise ink. To further emphasize the center sentiment I added a sticker with 3D foam dots as the “o”, with a tiny pink bling gemstone on the heart. Two strips of paper were added to the bottom, red cardstock and blue diamond patterned paper. Then the heart sticker was added to bottom right as shown with another 3D dot.

Who does your heart belong to? Tell them with this card and continue on with your own love story. 

Loving to stamp,
Patty

Valentines are a special kind of mail, don’t you agree? There is nothing sweeter than receiving a handmade valentine the old fashioned way, via snail mail. Here is a card your mailman will be proud to carry to it’s final destination. These stamps and paper are from the fabulous new Jillibean Soup/Hampton Art collection aptly named Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup.

Love Delivered card by Patty Folchert

To create this card begin with a red cardstock base. From the Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup Bite Size Bits page cut out the “subway art” card and mat with pink cardstock as shown. Then using a border punch add the lacy edge by punching from white cardstock.  Stamp the heart ballon and envelope onto white cardstock with turquoise ink and fussy cut out. Attach balloon to card with 3D foam dots as shown. Using the smallest hole punch you have punch a hole in the top right corner of the envelope as shown, attach with foam dots. Using metallic silver string add the string tied into a bow onto the balloon and curled up and through the envelope as shown. Hold in place with tiny staples as shown. Add a tiny pink bling to seal the envelope. 

There it is, love delivered. 

Love Afloat,
Patty
