Scraptastic Saturday: A Sweet Valentine

Happy Weekend to All! 


 It's been a while since I've posted on a Saturday. But since I've been feeling better I've been getting back to work in my craft space. Cupid struck and I recently made this sweet little Valentine card and wanted to share.



I've been working on my office/craft space and going through the clutter and getting things more organized. I found some treasures I forgot I had- including some sweet yellow velvet ribbon and some pretty delicate pearl stickers. So that equaled a valentine in my mind...seeing as the timing is about right too. ;) 




I have some pretty blank cards and I love embellishing them. This one has such a pretty backdrop with romantic roses that have musical paper and french words all over them. I then added some yellow card stock I cut out with decorative shears. Then I glued on some yellow velvet ribbon (to bring out some of the yellow roses) and also added some dainty pearls along the edge. Then i found some white fabric letter stickers and added my message.




And of course one needs an embellished envelope to go with the card. Can't send your sweetheart just any 'ol envelope. This one has a "love birds" sticker (in case he needs reminding). And more yellow cut card stock and some wee delicate pearls up in the corner. Perfectly sweet!



A pretty and romantic little set, don't ya think?





I had fun making a valentine last year too. But that one I put in an old frame I had laying around and used it as a decoration. You can see that post here.




And of course a little "candlelight" makes any occasion a little more romantic.  It's fun to make that certain someone feel extra special.






And after all, who doesn't want to hear these words on Valentine's Day?

  1. What sweet Valentines you make - and thank you for reminding us that Valentine's day is just around the corner. The yellow velvet is really pretty; I like a pink/yellow combo. Last year I made a patchwork heart pillow for Valentines. Now, what can I do this year? xx

  5. So pretty! There's nothing like getting a homemade card to treasure! I have a dear friend who introduced me to scrapbooking years ago and she always sends me handmade cards with love. I treasure them all and she does all her Christmas cards that way, bless her heart :-) Sounds like you are getting organized in the new year too, doesn't it feel great? Lots of work but so worth it. ;-) Have a great day!

    Blessings,
    Jill
