Handmade Valentines Day Cards

Here are a couple of valentines day cards I made really quickly.
For this card I used the technique of dry embossing on velum to do the hearts and then cut them out. I stamped the front and inside of the card with this Kaiser stamp and then I used a simple square of silver shiny cardstock and a smaller square of red patterned paper. The hearts were glued down with one using pop dots to raise it up. And finally I used a TLC sticker for the inside of the card.

This card was even simpler I just stamped the front of the card with the Kaiser stamp using black ink and then I stamped "Love" using a gold ink and the Inkado stamp. Once this was dry I went back and painted parts of the stamp with gold paint. (sorry for the blurry photos I was in a rush to photograph it before DH saw it.

Making cards can be a great way to save money as you can make them out of your scrap supplies. Although I really don't like making a card for someone as a rule as they look at it and then throw it out. I prefer to make alot of cards for someone so they'll have a supply for the whole year. That way they appreciate all your hard work and so does the person they give it to.
