Glimmer Valentine Card

Don't tell me! I KNOW what you're thinking!
It's not even Christmas yet and here I am showing you a Valentine!

Well, yes.
Yes, I am.
Mainly because this week has been especially full of fun and craziness and even though I have MANY stamped projects to show you, this is the only one that I had photographed and ready to go this morning. Ha!
BUT, Valentine's IS just around the corner and this is a pretty easy card, so it'd be simple for you to recreate it if you need a lot of them.

My upline, Jan Wakeland, came to Virginia to hold a meeting the weekend before Thanksgiving and the swap theme was Valentines. So this was my swap card.
Do you likey?

I likey it a lot!
It's so my style - clean and simple, but just enough bling to make it pop.
I used Real Red and Pool Party as my color scheme - love those two colors together!

The Pool Party layer was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder to give it texture. What ever did we do without those embossing folders?
I stamped the hearts in Pool Party ink from the I Heart Hearts stamp set on Whisper White, then tied a bit of Real Red Satin Ribbon around the panel.
The sparkly red heart was punched out with the Large Heart Punch from Red Glimmer Paper and I added the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes. It's punched out with the Modern Label Punch and attached with Tombow. You do have to let it dry completely though - it doesn't like to stick to the glimmer paper.

So, there you have it - a completely simple, good for guy or girl, Valentine card.

Thanks to all of you who wished Mark and I well on our Anniversary - we were overwhelmed with all the sweet comments from so many.
We had a wonderful afternoon and evening - I promise to blog about it, with photos, but I was waiting so I could include our evening out tonight as well. He not only surprised me on Wednesday with wonderful things, but tonight, he is taking me to the Kennedy Center to the symphony and to enjoy a meal at their Terrace Restaurant. I'm so excited!

Have a wonderful day friends, see you tomorrow!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate. Wish you a Happy Anniversary and also a Merry Christmas.

  2. a great evening; we had the same 1st. dance song as you & 17yr. later, I still get wispy-eyed.

  3. Hello!

    This is a beautiful card - the colors are so soothing to the eye after weeks of red and green and glitter! :<) Valentines Day IS just around the corner and I love this inspiration!

    Wishing you a happy day!
