Grateful For You – Simple Valentine’s Day Card

Hi everyone! It’s Lisa here to share a really simple, but beautiful, Valentine card. Cards like these are just perfect for friends, neighbors, or anyone that you just want to say “thanks” to.


1. Scribble watercolor pencils over the watercolor paper (I chose reds and pinks for Valentine’s Day).

2. With a paintbrush, baby wipe, or wet fingers blend the scribbled colors so that they are now watercolors. Either allow to air dry or heat set with heat tool. Set aside.

3.  Using different colors of glitter paper, a die-cutting machine, and dies – die-cut 3 hearts.

4. Using stencil with hearts, apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to one portion of card front very thinly using palette knife. If Gel is applied too thickly it can take a long time to dry. This should NOT be heat set as it will bubble.


5. Apply 3D Foam Squares – White, Small to backs of hearts and apply the hearts to the card front.

6. Tear piece of vellum, stamp sentiment in Versamark, heat emboss using white embossing powder. Wrap vellum around card front and secure in back using Crafty Power Tape.

7. Place 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular all over back of card front.

8. Wrap baker’s twine around card front and secure in bow. Using Dodz Small roll in ball and place under bow to secure. Remove backing from 3D Foam Squares – White, Regular and secure to card base.


This card is so easy to make AND replicate! How fun would it be to make a bunch of these cuties for your best girlfriends?
