Elegant Valentine’s Day Cards

By Cards

Hey all,

It’s been a long while since I’ve updated you on some projects and happenings of the craft room. I’m happy to say that it’s been a great start to the new year and I was working on a bunch of orders in January. Luckily, I have had some time to work on newer projects that I am happy to share with you today.

Last year I made an assortment of classroom/workplace type mini cards that were a hit with so many of you. This year I thought I’d bring back my favorite set. Here’s a look at how they turned out

Each card slightly varies but coordinates with the next. I also used my silhouette to create some fun kraft envelopes that I die-cut and assembled for each set.

I also included a little area on the inside of each card for a little note to be written.

Each card and envelope measures just under 3 1/2″ and is perfect with a little treat for the upcoming holiday!

Valentine’s Day Cards – HeartFelt Animals

By Cards

Hi All,

Did you catch the pun in the title there? These adorable cards were created using felt animals that share a common ‘heart’ shaped theme. I didn’t want to over-think these cards too much and just wanted to fun animals to take center stage.

I used a dry embossing technique and added embossed hearts to the background and added a fun animal to each card. I didn’t have many Valentine’s Day sentiments that were kid friendly (kisses, xoxo, extreme declarations of love etc..just seems a little too much for my style). So I just kept things super simple.

Here they are!




These cards measure 3×3″ and are just the right size to hand out in classrooms with a little treat! I made some cards last year with these felt-friends and they were a huge hit! They just had to make a reappearance this year.

Thanks so much for your support and checking in to see what’s new here at joliesamuel.com. As some of you may know, the mini cards on my Etsy have already sold out!
