Valentine Cards

In my last post I showed the new heart embellishments that we have in stock ready for Valentine's day card making, here are a couple of cards that I used them on.
I like this one because it's not too fussy, a great card to give to a man, the simple message means it could be used anytime and not just for Valentine's Day.
I used our Red Shiny Hearts on a strip of our Gold Mesh ribbon, this was mounted on black card which was edged with narrow Gold Lines peel off's. All this was mounted onto a red A6 Card Blank and the wording was stamped using a message from the Lots of Hearts clear stamp set, stamped in black and clear embossed.

The next one is a lighter, fun design which could be sent to a man or a woman and again is not specifically for Valentine's Day.

This has got to be the quickest card ever, mount cream card onto a red card blank leaving a narrow border all the way round, cut a square of red card and a smaller square of cream card and layer these to form the frame for the main heart. I used a Red Satin Heart for this card and stamped a row of kisses underneath it in black and clear embossed it. I stamped the message in the bottom half of the card and punched a small heart out of the red card to put below the message.

All the products used for these cards are available from the Valentines collection at  www.wildwarehouse.com my craft supplies website.

Valentine Hearts

It's been two months since my last post, it's just incredible how quickly the time has passed, it's way too late to wish you a Merry Christmas but I can just squeak in with a Happy New Year!!

Now the festive season is over it's time to look forward to the next major card making event of the new year  - Valentines Day.
Nothing is more symbolic of love than a heart, and we've just launched a whole collection of them in different colours and materials. Whatever your style whether you want a classic red satin heart, a super modern shiny turquoise heart or a cute red and white polka dot heart, we have just the thing for you.

I stamping is your thing then take a look at our Valentine Shop, where we have several clear stamps with a romantic feel to them including two new stamps, a gorgeous, modern " Lots of Hearts" stamp with hearts in all kinds of arrangements and love sentiments and the cutest "Love you Ted" stamp featuring Ted the bear and some lovely text. One of my personal favourites is the single large rose stamp which will create a stunning centrepiece for a Valentine or Mothers Day card.
