After all the hoopla from Christmas season the winter months kinda get me down. That is until I remember that Valentine's Day will be coming up shortly. Then I hear my grandsons asking what kinda box are we going to make this year? And what kinda Valentine cards or treats are you going to make for my class this year?
This year I have a couple of candy treats, which I normally don't do, when there is 3 in the house with ADHD. So these are for you, Maymay's readers. I will post later a couple of non candy treats.
This card can be made super simple or you can step it up a little and make your own designer paper. The cards in these pictures where made using Maymay's Stamps making my own designer paper.
for this project you will need the following items:
- 1 piece of red card stock 2.5x 8" scored at 4".
- 1 piece of designer paper or white card stock 2.25" x 3.75".
- 1 piece of red card stock 2 x 1.5"
- 1 piece of white card stock 1.75 x 1.25"
- heart punch
- art glitter glue
- heart shaped wrapped chocolate candy
- Sweet heart punch
the following Maymay's stamp sets:
On the white card stock I stamped all the stamps from Relic stamp set, using different shades of red, pink, beiges. Stamp them in different directions and over lapping each other and off the paper. I also added the triple heart from Trixie"s Valentine, then I thought it needed some more so I added the love arrow and some more hearts from Love Is Clear stamp set in black for a contrast. Then I added the heart cross border and I heat embossed it in silver and added some hearts and embossed them in gold. Then I cut the card stock down to size. 2.25x 3.75"
To make an quicker version just use designer paper
This is for 2 cards
I glued this to the front of the red card stock.
Taking a piece of scrap paper and punch out a heart. Take that heart and trace it on the card front centering it, but leaving it toward the bottom. see pic
I use a mechanical pencil for complete erasing
Using the punch, punch out the heart using the traced image as a guide.
Keep the heart we will be using it on the next project.
On the small white card stock piece stamp the love arrow and matt it with the small piece of red card stock glue to the front of the card. Add a sentiment inside I used Love each other deeply.
Add a bow or wrap the ribbon or baker's twine around the card and secure with a knot or bow.
Using a glue dot add a chocolate candy heart under the punched out heart.
Don't worry if the punch out and candy don't fit just right it helps keep the card closed. Besides it won't long long after the kids spy it.
