A “More Amore” Valentine Card for My Mom

Stampin up stampinup stamp it pretty order online spring catalog valentine day card ideas
Today’s card evolved from a clever, new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO278), fresh colors and pretty patterns from Stampin’ Up! More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The patterns mix and match with perfection–a real time saver for me.


  • Snip, snip!  The valentine heart was clipped from the laser cut heart sheets in the More Amore Collection.

  • I added a rhinestone to the center of the crystal button (Artisan Embellishments Kit) for even more sparkle.

  • My Pool Party card base measures 5 1/4″ square.  I created a coordinating envelope using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Diagonal Plate.  It’s simple.  Here’s My Measuring Chart for whipping up many sizes of common envelopes.
