Valentine’s Card with Contemporary Colors

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi everyone!

Svitlana is here today. Now is the season of love and Valentine's card-making, which usually means red or pink cards in their majority. Which may not work for every recipient, like for men. I personally often don't really like the cheesiness of traditional Valentine's cards. So today I want to share one design using a bit (or not really) of contemporary colors.

Altenew Rose Framelist Die Svitlana Shayevich Enchanting Washes 01I started by making an A2 card out of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then I cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel out of a patterned paper from the Enchanting Washes 6×6 Paper Pack and adhered it onto the card base.

Altenew Rose Framelist Die Svitlana Shayevich Enchanting Washes 03I cut the letters for the word LOVE out of a gold glitter paper using dies from the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set and foam mounted them onto the card.

But I kind of got carried away deciding where to place flowers so didn't pay attention to that part. I only realized this when I was EDITING the PHOTOS, lol. But I like how it turned out. So this confession rant was about a fortunate mistake and that sometimes going the opposite direction can give a better result.

Have a wonderful day!

Svitlana, this is a spectacular card and you are right, sometimes a plan is better when it is altered at the end! A totally stunning result and I love the dark at the top; it draws your eye all around the card front. Thanks for sharing your stunning work!

Oh my gosh, ‘how beautiful. Love the crisp white flowers on the blue base card. Thank you for sharing this “fortunate” mishap. I have the stamp set, button the dies (yet), lol.
Have a lovely weekend, and hope all that forecast snow doesn’t cause too much havoc.

Great card, I usually go with nature as the red/pink is so much not my husband. Thanks for the great idea.

Stunning card – of course you’ve chosen my favourite colour, which also helps. Love the non-traditional colour for a valentine card. Beautiful work. TFS.
