Valentines day cards can be created from using a heart punch to create a graphical embellishment.
I wanted to take advantage of using my heart craft punch as much as possible for my Valentine card idea so I was determined to create an embellishment with it.
Using an existing card design, I was able to switch out the birthday clip art and created a heart feature by combining two different heart sizes and arranging them unevenly in a rectangular shape.
I created an interesting embellishment, which ending up costing a few cents, by using two heart punches, adhesive gems, scrap pieces of paper and a small stamp.
Here's another Valentine card idea using the same heart punch as the card above. I also used a couple of other punches. I used a scallop border punch to make the right borders in pink and blue paper. I also applied chalk ink on the scallop side of the border. Along the corners of the cream paper, I used my 1/2" corner punch.
I used the colors from the love dovey bird print as the coordinating colors for this card. I found a blue and white scrapbook pattern paper which served as a nice background for the card.
The Valentines day card is embellished with red adhesive gems and a cream satin ribbon.
Another example of a handmade Valentine card idea using the same heart punch as above is this card.
I punched out 4 hearts from 2 solid colors and 2 different paper pattern prints and arranged them inside a white box.
This card is made of different layers to add a lot of movement and interest to the card. To help embellish it, I used gingham ribbon, small adhesive gems and purple glittery brads.
