I have fallen for Snail Mail suite of products. It makes me smile and is perfect for those non-gushy valentines. Here is one example of the fun valentines you can make with this suite of products.
Card Base: Cut Bermuda Bay 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut white paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Cut Snail Mail paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛. Attach Snail Mail print paper to white mat. Attach these to Bermuda Bay card base.
Punch 2 ¼ circle from Bermuda Bay. Punch 2 circle from white paper. Die cut using Snail dies, the snail on card front a snail from the Snail Mail paper.
Attach white circle to the Bermuda Bay circle. Attach these circle to card front. Attach die cut snail to white circle with Stampin Dimensionals. Attach three red resin hearts to white circle.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
