Valentine’s Day Card Making at Paper Source


I love cards. I’ve kept most of the cards The Canadian and I have given each other throughout the years, save especially sweet birthday cards from friends and always get excited when we receive a save the date or wedding invitation. I found a Valentine’s Day Card Making Class at Paper Source and convinced a friend to go with me. We learned how to make 5 cards and it made me want to invest in stamps all over again.

If you’re looking for some paper related inspiration my favorite blog is Oh So Beautiful Paper.

Be Mine Card


Recipe Tips:

  • Punch out flag shapes before stamping.
  • Using a clothespin to hold shapes, (to avoid burning fingers) heat set stamped images with embossing heat tool to dry ink.
  • Apply lace tape to card and wrap ends of tape strip around card to prevent it from peeling up.
