Last Minute Valentine Tutorial

Supplies: White Cardstock, A Stamp of your choice (I chose a Studio G Heart Stamp), A variety of stamp pads, and Pop Dots.

Tools: Martha Stewart Score Board, Decorative Cutter, Glue, and Pen

1. I first trimmed my white cardstock to 4' x 8'. I repeated with 8 different cardstocks since I needed 8 cards.

2. I stamped my heart in various colors across the paper. I made sure to put each color in a different spot to create variety. 

3. Here are my cardstock all stamped up.

4. I took my scoreboard and scored at 4'. I made note of the first full heart on the front of each card.

5. With Scrap pieces of cardstock, I stamped coordinating heart colors to the first heart on the card.

6. I cut out the hearts and wrote little messages on the them. 

7. I used pop dots to glue the heart onto the card/

8. Here are the cards with their pop up hearts.

9. I wanted to add a little extra around the card, so I used a decorative cutter.

10. I trimmed all around the edges.

11. This is what the card looks all trimmed.

This is a quick and inexpensive way to make tons of Valentines. Asides from my tools, I spent less than $10 on my supplies. I made only 8 cards, but could have made as many as 50 if I needed to. The bonus, it took me about 30 minutes to create these cute little cards! Perfect for Moms who have to make cards for the whole class!
