Inside reads, "more fun!  Happy Valentine's Day!"

Cannot remember where I saw this adorable idea, but wanted to recreate the vague recollection I have of it, floating around in the cobwebs of my memory.  I'm sure it's not as cute as the original, but, I still likey!

Punched some 1/4" circles from yellow and green card stock, and a heart from red for the traffic light.  Had an internal war on the glitter.  Glitter?  On a GUY card?  Well, it's only a wee bit o' glitter.  And, it is a Valentine, after all.

  1. Your stuff is just absolutely divine. I get so many ideas from your work. Thanks for always peeking my interest.

  2. Adorable! This one caught my eye right away. Your other cards are lovely, too!

  3. So cute and clever…and I definitely think a little bit of glitter is A-ok on a guys’ Valentine!

  4. Awesome card! Just love that twinkle in the tiny, red heart!

  5. Hey, Nancy!

    I typically use 80lb. card stock, no matter what the source. This weight is pretty much a standard among paper crafters, and an indication of weight can usually be found on the packaging. I generally avoid card stocks under 80lb. for card bases because, yes, it is too flimsy for my taste.

    Some stampers prefer 110lb. card stock, especially if their cards are “heavily” layered and embellished Again, look on the packaging.

    If you are purchasing packs of solid card stock at major craft stores, you’ll often find that they are 65lb. so I would avoid those.

  6. Stinkin’ cute! Love it!

  7. Julie – I love your work! I too like to make cards, but I am having a problem. Every beautiful card I make is way too top heavy. The front is full of ribbon, flowers, sentiment, etc and when you stand it up, it falls down! What kind of paper do you use for your cards? Is it especially heavy/thick? I would like to know also, where you get it, please. Thank you in advance for your help with this problem.
