Valentine Petals


2 years ago when I first started blogging, I did a 14-day Valentine’s countdown, posting a different Valentine every day for the first 14 days of February.  Ever since then, I’ve been kind of slow on creating Valentines.  But I usually get “in the mood” and get a few made. Here’s my first design.




Note: finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”

Riding Hood Red (SU!)

  5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; score at 4 1/4”
  2 1/2” x 3 1/4”
  small scrap

Pink Pirouette (SU!)

  4 1/8” x 5 3/8”
  2 3/8” x 3 1/8”

Candy Lane DSP (SU!)

  2” x 5 1/4” –
        2 pieces with different patterns

Very Vanilla (SU!)

  2 1/4 x 3”
  small scrap

Stamper’s Select White (Paper Trey)   2 1/4” x 3”


Rich Cocoa (Memento); Riding Hood Red (SU!)


Bluebell BittyBloom (Stamping Bella); Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!)


COPIC markers (Imagination International); Pink Pirouette Ribbon (SU!); Word Window Punch (SU!); Modern Label Punch (SU!); Foam tape; Scor-Pal; Adhesive Transfer Glider 714 (Scotch); Rotary trimmer with straight blade (Fiskars); Scissors



Stamp the image in brown ink – once on the larger vanilla panel, and once on the white panel.  Using COPICS, color the feet on the vanilla panel  (I used E0000 and E00).

Color the full image (except the feet) on the white panel.  Here’s the colors I used:

  • Face & Hands: E0000, E00, RV10
  • Petals: RV000, RV10
  • Shirt, Basket, Cap: R35, R37, E47
  • Berries: R35, G21

Cut out the fully color image – trim it closely, and cut off the feet, the hair curls, and the stem on top of the cap.


Mount the patterned paper on the pink panel. Tie a knot near one end of the ribbon, and adhere it across the panel covering the seam between the different patterns of the paper.  Mount this set on the front of the base card.

Mount the smaller pink panel on the small red panel, followed by the vanilla panel with the image on it.  Now add the trimmed, colored image using foam tape on top of the image on vanilla.  Mount this set on the card front to the left of the knot in the ribbon.

Punch a decorative label out of the red scrap.  Stamp the Valentine greeting in red on the vanilla scrap and punch it out with the word window shape.

Mount the sentiment on the red label, and add it to the card.

Final Notes

Inside, I added a vanilla panel sized 4” x 5 1/4”. I stamped a friendship greeting in red.

Thanks for stopping by!
