I received a goodie box with all sorts of deliciousness: card stock, glitter paper, self adhesive ribbon, embellishments and more.

I am a scrapbooker from way back and I knew I wanted to make some easy handmade Valentine cards for some special folks in my life.

Easy Handmade Valentine Cards

For all the cards I made I cut the 12×12 cardstock into an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet which I then cut in half. These cards measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 when folded.

After cutting a smaller piece of corrugated paper I then used this adorable pink ribbon and merely cut off one flower and glued with a pop dot.

If you like bling this glitter paper is amazing and doesn’t get glitter everywhere! The xoxo are Thicker stickers.

To the card below I added some ribbon from my stash, along with an embellishment glued to a cardstock square.

This card is patterned paper from my scrap paper stash glued to a white cardstock base with a heart cut by hand and ribbon bow added.


This card has burlap cardstock attached to a white base. Have you ever heard of such a thing? The burlap is amazing! I simply added a border strip and buttons to give it a little dimension.
