Petals + Blooms Heart Cards

The Petals + Blooms paper pad by Paper Studio has fast become my favorite paper pad! It is a very high quality paper, thick and almost has the texture of wallpaper. I love every single sheet in the pad! I used this pad for my 2019 calendar in a previous post. I have made scrapbook pages using it, and even a tissue box cover.

I actually made the first card as a Valentine's card, but I don't think it has to be just for Valentine's Day. I liked the way it turned out, so I created the second card as a birthday card.

Both cards are 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". I used a die cut from Catherine Pooler to create the "doily effect" in the light pink layer. I then added the paper from Petals + Blooms, along with some die cut hearts and a greeting. For the "I heart you" card, I used the And Many More stamp set from Stampin' Up and the birthday greeting is from a past Paper Pumpkin kit.  I cut the greeting into a banner for the second card and used a word window punch for the first greeting.

Red, Black & White Valentine Cards

I made my Valentine Cards this year in a Red, Black & White color combination. The "Bee Mine" card was created using black and white striped background paper. The bee and words are from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.

The mailbox card is actually a throwback to several years ago, but I still loved the theme so decided to recreate it! I used black and white background papers and cut the mailbox using the Cricut Doddlecharms cartridge.

For this card, I used a black cardbase and added black and white wood patterned paper. I die cut two red hearts, along with the gold letters and a string of white outline hearts.

This was the easiest card of all. I used a white cardbase and added black and white striped paper, and then a die cut foil heart. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes by Stampin' Up.

I have always loved this color combination. It never seems to go out of style!
