Friendly Valentine

I’m not participating in any challenge today…but I am busy making my Valentines.  Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I really enjoy holidays that are just about expressing an emotion.  Thanksgiving is another one that I truly enjoy.  No big hype or months of planning…just a day to let those special people in your life know that you care and are grateful for them.

I really enjoy sending cards to friends.  Most times they are an unexpected surprise and I know that they are appreciated.

These little “love” notes are just that…little.  They are note card size and really sweet.  Again, I used my favorite DSP, Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  For a small 6 x 6 pad, this paper packs a BIG punch.  I am particularly drawn to the floral prints.   The coordinating stamp set, Bloomin’ Love, is another bang for your buck.  I love the florals in this set and can see using this beyond Valentine’s Day.  I punched the heart with the Sweetheart Punch twice and layered it.  The floral in the heart was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then it was adhered with dimensionals.

I used a retired sentiment for the inside, since it said exactly what I wanted.

I stamped the front of the envelope, as well as the envelope flap, with floral stamps from the same set.  I try to find different ways to decorate my envelopes.  I must be honest here, though.  I really like this paper and did not want to waste it on the envelopes since I am sending quite a few of these cards out.  So stamping them was a perfect solution and still adds a special little touch.

I hope you liked these “friendly” little notes….after all, it is the little things that matter!

Thanks for looking on my post today and have a wonderful day.

  1. Your cards are bright and fresh and beautiful. I also bought this stamp set and love it.

  2. I absolutely LOVE the looks of these. They are bright and clean, I am not attracted to dark, busy cards. Many thanks.
