Easy and Elegant Valentines

January 28, 2019

If you are looking for easy and elegant Valentine ideas (which would also be great for wedding and anniversary cards, too!), look no further than today’s inspiration with Sherry Hester.

Sherry’s grey and white color scheme gives a modern look to these designs. This scheme is also great for masculine cards, too.

Design details: Adhere Antique Gray card stock cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ to card base. White emboss background stamp on white card stock, die cut using large heart, and sponge Hickory Smoke over top. Adhere to card with foam tape. Add small red heart to heart locket and adhere to large heart. Add a red twine bow. Ink sentiment in Versafine Crimson Red and stamp. Add small hearts

Die cut locket heart from white and heavily sponge with Hickory Smoke, add small locket heart, and adhere to large heart. Die cut Script Love from white, and just the heart from red. Add red heart over corresponding white heart and adhere to front of card. Add small red hearts.
