5 Sweet Valentine’s Day Card Ideas!

Valentine’s Day is coming up so I wanted to share some great Valentine ideas using Hot Off The Press’ Love + 5 Hearts cutting die set! It’s a versatile cutting die collection with a variety of heart sizes and designs, and “Love” in a gorgeous script font. I’m highlighting my favorite parts of each card, but click on any card for full instructions and supplies used. 🙂


Below, Amy’s card uses the absolutely adorable Penelope Scrapbooking Papers (and quite honestly, I’m sitting here wondering why I haven’t got a set of them yet—ha)! I love that she die cut a white heart doily frame, and then places it over a white die cut mat. The effect is very sweet, and I love the dimension it adds! The studded border was created with Flamingo Liquid Pearls™ but you could also use Stickles™ glitter glue or new Nuvo Crystal Drops. So pretty! Click on the card for Amy’s instructions.

This next card features a match made in heaven! Gail used Hot Off The Press’ new Heart Window Flap Die-Cut Cards which are perfectly sized for Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies! The swirly heart focal was die cut from gorgeous Pearl Adhesive Sheets and combined with vibrant Honeysuckle papers to create this stunner. Click on the card to see Gail’s directions.

If you enjoy stenciling, check out LeNae’s card below, created using the All Over Swirls Stencil from Hot Off The Press. I love the simplicity, plus it’s easy to make this card quickly and in any color! LeNae used a heart die-cut to mask the heart shape in the center—then she inked over it using a stylus for the soft, blended look you see. This is a great card for a guy! Click on the card for LeNae’s instructions.

Susan made this awesome shaker card, below, using Emma’s Garden papers along with the Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies. Unfortunately, some of the heart embellishments are no longer available, but Susan shares her great instructions on creating a lovely shaker card, and it’s a simple matter to substitute other papers or embellishments—just click on the card!

Finally, one more card from Amy with a different look. She made this card with Simply Susan Double-Sided Papers and I love the colors, and well as the chevron. This is another card idea that’s perfect for guys! She used the Heart to Heart stamp set which is yet another great find for Valentine’s crafting as it has tons of sentiments all about love! Click on the card for Amy’s directions.

Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies have been around for a couple years now, so chances are you might already have them! If not, you might want to add them to your wish list as hearts get used so often! I hope this post inspires you to start creating some Valentine’s Day love!
