stamps, papers, and other supplies to achieve this romantic look. It definitely has us under its spell!

stamps, stencils, and dies.

5. Digital Cut File Calendar Card
This fabulously original calendar card from Saundra Rega
was made using a Scrapbook.com digital cut file
Saundra took a fabulous and simple Scrapbook.com digital cut file
for making calendars and shrunk it down to card front size for this fun design. The calendar grid, month, and day numbers were all cut out from her electronic die cutting machine and glued down with precision to form the fun calendar. A glittery popped-up
heart and a fun Lawn Fawn die cut and stamped banner puts this Valentine in our favorites list for sure!
6. Candy Heart Valentine
created this simple yet lovely layered card with lots of coordinating patterned papers
This fun card by Cassie Berger shows that a fun Valentine's Day card can be created from a number of patterned papers that aren't necessarily V-day themed. The base layer of blue and white polka dots is non-traditional but works beautifully with the one blue candy heart at the center of the card. The hand-drawn loving sentiment on the front banner affixed with brads gives this romantic card a truly personal touch that we love!
Loving the layered look? Us too! For fabulous layers and precise measurements (nobody likes crooked layers!) make sure that you invest in a stellar paper trimmer
to make your card making quick, easy, and accurate. Some of the options, like the bestselling Tim Holtz Comfort Trimmer
or the Fiskars 12 Inch Trimmer
have measurement guidelines for easy alignment every time!
7. Floral Love Letter Cards
is the brilliant crafter behind this series of vibrant and bright Valentines using products from Fun Stampers Journey
We hope you LOVE these four cards as much as we do! Lauralooloo created these fun floral love cards with vibrant shades of daffodil yellow, ocean blue, olive green, and rose pink. Using one rubber stamp from Fun Stampers Journey
as the star, she white heat embossed and then fussy cut each of the letters to spread out on four unique, gorgeous cards. Not only are these original Valentines, but this is a stamp and theme that you can use all throughout the year for the loved ones in your life!
8. Macaroni To My Cheese Card
made this cheesy card with brand new stamps and dies from Heffy Doodle
Some Valentines can be a little cheesy but this one is exceptionally cheesy!

This would be perfect to present to the cheesiest guy or gal you know as you share a romantic Italian dinner on February 14th!

stamps and papers.

10. Pink Bokeh Card
is the creative mind behind this brilliant gradient bokeh card.
This simple yet beautiful card makes us think of blowing bubbles, brilliant chandelier lights, or even a bubbly champagne toast to the one you love. Bokeh is a visual effect that comes from photography where there are certain parts of a photo out of focus. This translates beautifully into a fun and fabulous card base. The ombre blush to bubblegum pink blend is truly stunning, with just a simple sentiment banner and three adorable puffy hearts to finish off the look.

heat embossed sentiment.
