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.
