I doodles a few flowers and the framed them in and colored them with my Tombow markers and cut them out.I used Power Adhesive Tabs to mount them to pre-cut note cards with envelopes then added buttons from the Laura Kelly collection of bright colors to make them “pop”!

Sunday Card Making: A Valentine that Holds a Gift Card

Are you giving a Gift Card to your Valentine this year? Gift cards are great, but they rarely come in a cute package. Am I right?

This is easy peasy. You will be ready to present those gift cards in style, for every occasion.

Ready? Here we go!

Valentine for Gift Card


I’ve mad a standard card. A2 – 4.25 x 5.5 – inside though, I added a flap. Above, I’ve stamped and cut and matted, and added a row of glorious Buttons in Laura Kelly Walters fabulously bright colors. Easy peasy, right?

I like to stamp a lot of images and keep them in a baggy so when I’m bored, yes, like that ever happens. What I mean is when I have time, I can sit down and color. Then, when I need a card, I already have images ready to go. This cute set of stringing hearts is from the Unity Stamp Company’s Kit of the Month. I stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink from Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts and colored with a few Copic Markers.

Shall we head inside?

Below, I added the flap. I stamped and fussy cut my hot cup of steamy cocoa and the sweet sentiment sentiment. Inside the flap, I stick on my cards with a Glue Dot. If you prefer, you can tape up the sides and make a pocket.
