Sending Love Valentine Cards

"Sending Love"

My first Valentine card is made with Stampin' Up supplies from the "Sending Love Suite." That then led me to create the "Mailbox Sending Love" card below using a Cricut cut and paper from the "mint to be fab" 12 x 12 paper pack from the Paper Studio. The supplies I used are detailed below.

Mailbox Sending Love

Valentine Card #1 - Sending Love:
White Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches
White Stitched Layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches, cut using "Bundle of Stitched Shapes" by Simon Says Stamp
Red Square Layer: 3 x 3 inches
White Square layer: 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 inches
Patterned Paper Layer: 2-5/8 x 2-5/8 inches, cut using "Stitched Framelits" by Stampin' Up. Paper is "Sending Love DSP" by Stampin' Up.
Mini-envelope and liner - "Love Notes Framelit Dies" by Stampin' Up.
Greeting: "Sealed with Love" by Stampin' Up.
Red Heart: Stampin' Up punch

Valentine Card #2 - Mailbox Sending Love:
Black Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches
Black & White Heart Layer - 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches "mint to be fab" pack from the Paper Studio 
Black & White Love Layer - 3-1/4 x 4-1/2 inches "mint to be fab" pack from the Paper Studio
Mailbox - Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge, p. 67, cut at 1-1/2 inches. I cut the shadow layer, the mailbox layer, and layer 1, cutting away the smiley face. I also cut the red flag (Layer 2). The post is a handcut 1/4 inch strip. I attached the flag to the mailbox with a small brad so it actually moves up and down. I added a small punched red heart to the front of the mailbox. I layered the Layer 1 cut on top of the mailbox cut, and then attached those layers to the shadow layer with dimensional dots.
"Love" die cut: Set of word dies from Momenta - Hobby Lobby
Mini Red Envelope - hand cut using a 1-inch strip of paper, folded and trimmed to resemble an envelope. I added a small punched out black heart as a seal.

Stay tuned until Valentine's Day for more Valentine projects and cards!
