Origami Heart Valentine’s Day Cards

Here’s a sweet but simple way to use those origami hearts Valentine’s Day Card you folded yesterday. You did fold some, right? I showed you the first ones I made a little earlier this week.

Origami Heart Valentine's Day Cards

Glue your origami hearts onto a blank card and add a Valentine’s message. I stamped mine – if don’t have stamps, you can easily just write it on, or skip it altogether.

Of course a little treat – like some origami paper & instructions to fold-your-own hearts – is always a welcome surprise when you’re sending pretty mail.

Why use a regular envelope when you can slip your handmade card into a middy bitty bag. Heart stickers double as address labels – but are way cuter!
How about you? Will you be sending valentines this year?
Idea for Valentine's Day - Love Waterfall Card

Idea for Valentine's Day - Love Waterfall Card

Welcome to Day 3 of my mini series for Valentine’s Day!

For today’s card, I’m featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sophisticated Serifs Photopolymer Stamp Set.

It seems that the waterfall card was all the rage … about 5 years ago. I’ve never actually made one, so I’m pretty excited. This card uses the same measurements and layout of the card featured in the video.

I originally purchased this set to do some monogram cards for one of my friends, but I wanted to find another way to use the set. I’ve seen a few baby block type waterfall cards, so why not a Love block type waterfall card?

To create this card, you will need: (all measurements provided in inches)

  1. Card base in Real Red (5 1/2  x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4)
  2. Piece of Whisper White (4 x 5 1/4)
  3. Piece of DSP from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack (3 3/4 x 5)
  4. Piece of Real Red card stock (8 x 1 1/2, scored at 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3, 3 3/4)
  5. Piece of Real Red card stock (4 x 3/4)
  6. Scrap piece of Whisper White for punching (Four postage stamps, one circle, and two confetti hearts)
  7. Four pieces of Real Red card stock (1 1/2 x 1 1/2)

Directions:

  • Use the word window punch to punch window in DSP in the lower right hand corner.
  • Add DSP to Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp “I HEART YOU” sentiment in Real Red ink. Set aside.
  • Use Postage stamp punch to punch out four stamps.
  • Stamp L, O, V, E in Real Red ink on separately on each postage stamp punch.
  • Layer each postage stamp on small squares.
  • Add waterfall piece to band as shown in the video.
  • Glue each square just below each score line working from the bottom or the E.
  • Use brads to attach to DSP/Whisper White base.
  • Attach to card base.
  • Complete tail by attaching white circle folded in half, punch a hole, and add ribbon.
  • Use glue dots to add two matching hearts to cover brads to finish card.

Nothing is greater than a handmade Valentine’s day card for that special someone! Today, I created a small and easy Valentine’s Day Card for the hubs and my daughter.

DIY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

All you really need is a few materials. You will need: card-stock paper, vinyl, scissors, hole puncher, glue gun, string and envelope.

DIY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Cut desired size of the card. I cut off a piece just slightly smaller than the envelope so it can fit nicely.

DIY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Fold in half and make a hole punch just about 1/2 inch from the ends.

DIY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Attach string or twine in between holes.

DIY VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Cut a heart out of card stock paper. I used a glitter canvas type paper I found at Hobby Lobby where all the felt is. Then I add a little glue to the edge of the hole punch to hold on the twine/string from falling off.

I used the to create my vinyl letters and used a gold vinyl from Silhouette.

It turned out super cute and made it just in time for Valentine’s day! Hope you enjoyed this post.
