Valentine's Day Cards

Hello Friends! I have a few Valentine's Day cards to share today. Clean and Simple is the name of the game! I decided to make these in two color palettes...could be one for her and one for him.

First up is Strawberry Slush.

I added Wink of Stella to the arrow and a few rhinestones to the sentiment...gotta have my signature sparkle!

Here's a look at the inside.

I kept the inside clean too, just added a little patterned paper and some hearts. I used a paper stack from Stampin' Up! I love that the paper coordinates so beautifully with the card stock.

And, here is the Coastal Cabana color palette.

I thought the addition of the wood grain heart was a nice touch if one wanted to give this card to a guy. I did add a bit of glitter brush to the arrow. Not a lot, but there is sparkle! I used an Avery Elle set for the greeting. I can't say how much I love the font on this set! Soooo pretty!

I finished off the inside of this one the same way I did the previous one.

I left plenty of room for writing a message.

That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for visiting me. Have an awesome weekend!

I love that you have both a feminine and a masculine version of this card. That wood grain heart is great for a man. Both cards have just the right touch of sparkle :) Love how you finished off the insides.

Awwwww, love these, Barb! I like how you've done them his and hers. And that woodgrain heart just about makes me swoon. That is fabulous. Glad you added your signature sparkle. I always admire how you complete the card on the inside. So well done!

I definitely agree with Sheila H! I think that making a special card for your beloved will be much more appreciated than emptying your wallet for a fancy dinner.
