Petal Pink card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Hearts paper: 2-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Purple patterned paper: 1/2″ x 5-1/2″

Patterned Paper is such a quick and easy way to make Valentine’s Day cards or cards for any other occasion. 


The colors from the printed paper can be pulled out and used to quickly choose coordinating colors of card stock, ink, and ribbon. Stampin’ Up! even tells you exactly which of their colors coordinate on the back of every pack of their designer series paper. I love it when they make it easy for me like that!

Highland Heather card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Hearts & Purple patterned papers: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
White: 1/2″ x 3″


This is one of the fastest and easiest Valentine’s Day cards you could ever make and it’s a great way to use your patterned papers! 

If you have patterned paper “scraps” longer than 5-1/2″ you can use one or two of them like this across your card base and just trim them down to size instead of measuring and cutting first.

I have a really old banner punch that I use to make the even banner cuts on my greeting strips, but you can banner cut one end of your greeting using Paper Snips or one of these ideas.
