Masculine/Feminine Mini Valentines

Happy Tuesday! I have 4 mini Valentine’s Day cards for you today with feminine and masculine feels. I decided to make these mini so I could throw together some last minute ones that would be fun to give away to friends or to attach to a gift. Here are the “male” versions of the cards: >>

I started by cutting a kraft A2 card base in half and attaching the washi/glitter tapes. Next, I stamped the (adorable!!) tiny heart in smokey gray alongside the tapes and finished each off with a sentiment – a stamped sentiment on card 1 and an embellishment sentiment on card 2. I added a little piece of gray string as well to card 1. And that’s it! These were super simple and left the ability to easily add another sentiment on the inside. Here are the feminine versions: >>

For these two, I used the white card base cut in half. For the first card, I started by stamping the arrows along the left side and then stamped the heart next to the arrows in gray. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom right hand corner in black and finished it off with a wrap and a bow of metallic cord from Target with a piece of pink ribbon.

For the second card, I started by stamping the pink polka dots on the background. I stamped my sentiment onto a trimmed piece of white cardstock and mounted it on trimmed navy cardstock. I wrapped the metallic cord around the top of the card base and tied it into a bow with a different piece of pink ribbon and then adhered the sentiment to the mini card with dimensional adhesive. And that’s it!

Mini cards are a lot of fun to put together – I love using tiny canvases!! I hope you all have a wonderful week and an incredible Valentine’s Day!

So I just signed up for Studio Calico’s Card Kits and boy oh boy are they fun!! This month was my first kit – Spencer’s – and it just wonderful! It is filled to the brim with adorable embellishments, fun patterned papers, and gorgeous mini envelopes. And then of course you get your stamps! The Lawn Fawn stamp set is sure to light up your cards and is perfect for graduations coming up! 

I have just barely started creating, but I made a couple of very simple mini thank you’s for my generous friends in the polka dotted mini envelopes! I used the Main Card Kit and the Americano Add On for these cards. They are about 3.5" x 2" in size and the notes are attached to cards in the middle. Take a look >>
