Hearts + Puppy = The Easiest Way to Make a Cute Valentine From You or Your Dog
This is the perfect Valentine card for you or your dog to send anyone on the friends and family card list. It’s sweet and simple. And yes, it can be from you or the family pooch who no doubt was stressing over getting out his Valentines.
Here’s What I Did to Make a Cute Valentine
Crafting this cute card was super quick and super easy. I grabbed my favorite go-to card base: Whisper White Thick Card Stock. Next, I cropped a giant heart in the heart pattern paper from the Sale-a-Bration Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.
I cracked open the Bella & Friends stamp set that is stinkin’ cute for any occasion. I’ve used the set for thank you cards, Christmas, birthdays and now Valentines. You can see a card set I shared when I first inked up the set here. Here’s the Christmas gift card holder I made.
I picked the Bella-with-her-bone-looking-right-at-YOU image and stamped her right in the center of the heart shape cutout. Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen stylized her to resemble my sister’s dog, but you can color her any color and give her spots, highlights or texture. To add dimension, I attached the heart layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two more hearts — one Gold Foil, one sentiment — were adhered next to the Bella along with a gold and brushstroke embellishment cropped using the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I did use the Valentines Day Sure Do Love You stamp set from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, but when you make a cute Valentine it isn’t necessary to own a Valentines Day stamp set. The Valentines theme can be expressed through colors, images everyone loves (think flowers, cupcakes, critters …) and of course, hearts. Most of these tools are probably already in a papercrafter’s tool chest.
