Me + You Valentine

It’s a cold, wet and dreary Sunday here in PA…so I’ll be stampin’ the day away!  Today I’m sharing a Valentine card I made for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge….

There were so many possibilities to consider with this challenge.  However, I wanted to make a masculine Valentine.  I find it rather difficult to make masculine cards, thus the challenge!

Here’s the Details….

  • The card base is Crumb Cake with a mat of Cherry Cobbler.
  • The next panel is Crumb Cake stamped in Soft Suede ink using the Hardwood stamp.

  • The heart was cut out using Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  Before gluing the Cherry Cobbler frame, I cut and glued the arrow from Love Notes Framelits.
  • I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to stamp the sentiment on a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I think the “messiness” of the lettering in this set was perfect for a tree carving!  I also thought that I should have said You + Me but…too late for that!
  • The sentiment was positioned and glued to the Cherry Cobbler panel.
  • The Hardwood panel was popped up using Foam Adhesive Strips for a more dimensional look.

  • The inside is pretty simple…another heart cut from Sweet & Sassy Framelits over a mat of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
  • The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  I find myself using this set more and more.  It has such simple sentiments for so many occasions.

  • A few Enamel Shapes finish off the card.
  • A strip of Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Chip cardstock embellish the Crumb Cake envelope.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to stamp today…even if it’s not raining!

Take care,
