Valentine 3 Card Set with 3 Artwork Tips

3-card set made with the January Stamp of the Month (Adore You) in Raspberry, Pansy and Emerald

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we are here to help you prepare with a $5 Valentine stamp set.  No kidding! Keep reading to find out how to get it.

How about if I first tell you how to get this beautiful set for only $5, then I give you some fun artwork tips for these cards?  Okey dokey!

This beautiful set (Adore You) is only available in January and is yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you order (before shipping and tax). When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your $5 set(s) before checking out. Easy, peasy!

Now, on to more details and tips for these cards:

4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card, top fold with bottom corners rounded

1.  When stamping your rows of hearts, lay a piece of paper straight across the card.  Position your heart on your acrylic block and let the bottom tip of each heart stamp just above the edge of the paper.  This will give you your first row of hearts, and it will be nice and straight.

2.  For the second row, turn your stamp upside down and position the tip of each heart between the two hearts in the row above.  Repeat steps 1 and 2 again until you have filled the front of your card with hearts.

3.  When embossing, stamp in our clear Versamark Pad, sprinkle your White Embossing Powder on top. Shake off the excess.  You may still have a few little grains of powder sticking to your cardstock. For a nice crisp image, with no "embossing powder polka dots" scattered around  your image, be sure to use a tiny paint brush to carefully brush any of those little stragglers off. Even if the powder isn't sticking to the stamped image, if it's on your cardstock, it will emboss when you heat it.

I've included a list of all of the products I used on this card at the very end of this post, complete with photos and links for your convenience.

A set of cards like this is a great gift for a friend, or fun Valentines for you to hand out to those you love!
