Did you create your handmade Valentine’s cards yet? If you need last minute suggestions, we have two awesome examples for you. But don’t worry, you can say ‘I love you’ any day of the year. Bookmark this post or save these images for any occasion.
Depending on how much time you have, we have a simple colorful option and a more detailed mixed media option for you.
Let’s start with a simple project.
Send love with circles instead of hearts. Create a colorful handmade project using all the sizes in the Journey Circles Die Set, alternating between sizes and cardstock colors. You can even add a few Spring Accent Dots and Candy Dots for more size variations.
Create texture! Use any of the stencils and embossing folders in your craft room to give a couple circles their own unique look.
Complete your project with the perfect sentiment and a dash of Journey Silver Silk.

Create a handmade project with small sentiments, blooms, background stamps, liquid color and embossing powder!
Start with your background. Give it a whimsical flow. Choose two liquid colors. Dilute both with water first to soften the color as desired. Allow the cardstock panel to dry first. Then choose your favorite background stamp to emboss over your background.
Add your featured image. Blooms are quite traditional for a Valentine’s card. Give yours extra attention. First stamp your Lovely Day image and then bring it to life with care coloring the flowers in with Liquid Colors. Add a few branches for the life-like effect.
Finally, choose your sentiment. There’s no wrong way to say ‘I love you.’ Say it with one stamp or as many as you can fit. The Text Happy Stamp Set gives you plenty of options from the xoxo to the Spanish ‘Te Amo.’ Stamp these on alternating cardstock colors to give each its own spotlight.
