Stationery: Aqua Valentines

kraftmint_valentines_turquoise_onecard

When do you usually purchase a Valentine’s card? Last year while shopping at Bartells it was Valentine’s day afternoon and the greeting cards section was full of men looking for a nice Valentine’s card ;) I must confess I was buying one too! Last February I hadn’t started crafting yet so I probably bought a card. I designed the cards above about a month ago during a crafting evening with a friend. I kept it simple and used Paper Source’s A2 cards in a Kraft color, aqua pool ink and a diamond rubber stamp also found at Paper Source. Please take a look below at a couple of variations.

Do you make your own cards or would you rather buy one? I enjoy buying them and collect them but also have a few already made in advance. Do you have a favorite designer you buy cards from, or a special stationery store? I love visiting Paper Source for cards but I’m also on the lookout for independent shops. Please take a look below at a few projects I’ve recently worked on. They might inspire you to make your own stationery and be ready to go for Valentine’s day!
