Handmade cards are a sweet way to send a personal message on Valentine’s Day. I enjoy making valentines cards, and I’ve always wanted to create easy greeting cards with decoupage and layers of tissue paper . . . so why not make one for my Valentine.

Amy’s My Aqua Valentine series last year inspired me to combine the blue and fuchsia colors in this card. And a little neon confetti notebook that I made this summer is the reason I covered the card with scattered hearts.

Step 1. Cut an 8.5” by 11” piece of white card stock in half (5.5” x 8.5”). Fold that piece in half to create a small card that will be 4.25” wide and 5.5” high. Cut out a smaller panel of blue cardstock to fit on the front of the card. (mine was 3.75” x 5”)

Working quickly, drop the little hearts into the decoupage. I laid mine down randomly and didn’t really have a pattern in mind (because I live dangerously like that, haha!). I used only one little pink heart so it stood out from the white shapes.

Step 4. After the Mod Podge Satin dries, apply another thin coat of decoupage over the tissue paper hearts to seal and protect them. Allow that layer to dry.

Step 6: Use double sided tape or scrapbook adhesive and attach the blue panel of paper to the front of the card. Sign the card and give it to your sweetheart! So simple!

I’ve never made a valentines card with decoupage before and I really liked how easy it was to create! The brushstrokes within the decoupage give my Valentine’s Day card character and a ‘handmade’ texture.

And I love the translucency of the tissue paper layers. I bet it would be pretty to use multi-colored papers and other shapes, too. I can’t wait to make more cards like this for other holidays!
