Pink and red stamped and die cut X’s and O’s have another sentiment down below along with sweet little birds and a banner. Take a peek at this project at Papertrey Ink.
If you’re stuck for card ideas try using a large sentiment as the focal point, adding smaller elements around it. Lots of stamp companies make large sentiment stamps and dies but large alphabet letter stamps and dies allow you to create custom phrases yourself.
I’ve collected some of my favorite current Valentine’s Day Card ideas that are very “sentiment-al”. You’ll find a link below each photo that will take you to the project, most of which will have tutorials for creating them.
This large “love” die cut sentiment is accented with a sweet girl digital stamp. Take a closer look at Sweet November Stamps.
This sweet heat embossed sentiment is surrounded with yummy stamped strawberries with shinny dipped chocolate. Visit Amy R.’s blog for a video tutorial.
Send someone some Big Paper Hugs with this adorable card that has stamped woodland critters in a scene below the large die cut sentiment. Visit the Hello Bluebird blog for all the details.
This lovely heart shaped card has a double layered die cut sentiment over top of stamped and colored flowers, this stamp has a coordinating stencil for quick coloring. Visit the Altenew blog for a video tutorial.
This large stamped and die cut “LOVE” fills almost the entire card and the layered “you always” helps complete the sentiment. With a subtle grey background this card would be a perfect masculine design for Valentine’s Day. Learn more at the LDRS blog.
This wonderful card has lots of texture from the heat embossed and ink blended background, to the embossed and popped up sentiment and the die cut “LOVE” with shimmer on top. Visit the MFT blog for a How to.
I love the pink and purple color combo that’s been ink blended on this pretty card and the die cut sentiment that mirrors the same colors. The die cut heart going off the side with vellum behind it adds lots of extra interest. Visit the Scrapbook.com Gallery for more details.
This interactive heart shaker card has the sentiment heat embossed over the acetate for a simple but very fun design. The ink blended background adds a nice pop of color. Visit the K Werner Designs blog for a DIY video.
This great card has love of cool mixed media techniques. The background is a smooshing ink technique with splatters of white paint, the next layer is heat embossed stamped hearts in gold on vellum paper and the die cut letters have white pen accents around the edges.
