Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane today. Remember Valentine’s Day back when you were in Elementary School? We’d decorate Valentine boxes on our own at home and then on that special day we’d bring our decorated box to School so our classmates could deliver their Valentine to each of us. What were your School traditions around Valentine’s Day?
Back in those days, I remember it was always the night before our classroom Valentine’s Party that I’d be making out my Valentine’s, carefully signing my name, inserting candy, then sealing and addressing the envelope. Today, it is still just as much fun to create and send those you care about a special Valentine card. It’s also fun to share a Valentine’s candy gift with others.
I’m sure it’s no surprise, I have another Valentine card idea to share. I created this card using products from the Sending Love Suite of products from the 2017 Occasions Catalog along with the Large Letters Framelits which are fast becoming one of my favorite die sets from our 2016-2017 Annual Catalog. I have a lengthy list of card inspiration to create using the Large Letters Framelits and hope to share more with you as this year progresses. Take a look at today’s Valentine card. This card was simple to create and assemble.
Supplies used to create the front of this card include: Real Red cardstock (cut 5.5″ x 8.5″; folded in half), Whisper White cardstock (cut 5.5″ x 3.25″ and for stitched circle), Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack patterned paper (for letters and scalloped circle), Sealed with Love Bundle, Layering Circle Framelits, and the Stitched Shapes Framelits which are available again for purchase. By the way, I finished off the inside of the card with Whisper White cardstock (cut 4″ x 5.25″) and a cluster of the four hearts adhered in the lower left-hand corner.
