You Make Me Happy Valentine Card

Valentines2014 1

Funny how a paper crafter has all year round to make holiday themed cards and yet on the night before the big red day, I found myself staying up way past my bedtime to make the boyfriend his card. Yep, I spent time on Valentine projects for friends, but saved one of the most important people in my life last. I wanted to make sure that I took special care and had plenty of time to spend on it. Oops.

Luckily, I rummaged through some of my CHA goods and found some products that were perfect for what I wanted to make. I’ve been attracted to Kate Spade’s collection of wonderful stationary but to be quite honest, I’m trying to save every nickel right now. So what’s a girl to do but make her own. I’m so thankful that AHA Arts and Freckled Fawn came through for me with this card. The sentiments and heart image were just perfect for the look I wanted to achieve. I’m so happy that I was able to dig in and use Ashley’s stamp set because I have been itching to make that perfect project for awhile using the Love Sentiments! The arrow paper clips were the crème de la crème to finish off this card!

I wanted to keep the inside the of card clean and simple but wanted to tie it in with the envelope. I embossed the heart images and then stamped the sentiment with jet black Staz-On.

As a fun side note, bet you didn’t know that I collect vintage Valentine’s! Here’s a peek of my collection so far:
