Amore Level 1 Valentine cards

I made 24 Valentine cards using Amore Level 1.

To make cards from level 1's, cut the pre-printed pages in the size that you want for the front of your cards. In this case I am using the blank cards I purchased from Micheals. So I cut each page into 4 1/2"x 5" squares.

Then add ribbon, stickers, and stamping to make your cards quick and easy! Remember you have 2 B&T sheets and 2 card stock sheets to use as well. Here are the cards I made. I set the cards up so you could see which part of the page they came from. If you would like complete instructions for this YOYO workshop email me!

each section:

A, B

C, D


This heart card came from section E. I added the ribbon, Chocolate C.S. square, B&T square with stamped heart, and the tag sticker and tag button.

Section B: Large heart

I added the stripe B&T, the heart sticker, and 3 brads. No stamping! So easy!

Section A: True Love

I added the ribbon and the true love sticker.

Section F:Simple heart

I added a strip of the chocolate B&T weave on the top, the striped B&T on the side, the ribbon, not on ribbon, and last the heart sticker.

Section D: You and Me

I added the lace sticker, then the you and me sticker

Section B: heart stitched

I added the ribbon and the heart sticker.

That's it!

Tip* to make your sticker buttons look more like real buttons cover them with a little Liquid Glass (let dry before touching!)

Section B: 4 u (#2)

I added the Chocolate CS, then the scrap strip that was left over from cutting page 1, then the 4 and U stickers, stamped the swirls, then the two small circle stickers

I was originally going to just use stickers, but I am such a stamp 'a 'holic I couldn't resists. If you do decide to only use stickers, I recommend purchasing the Level 2 stickers as well to give you more options. I love to use 3-d tape or square foams with the stickers. It gives it a slightly nicer look.

You can make these cute cards using any cute heart or valentine stamps. I used the coordinating colors for ink: Chocolate, Blush, and Tulip.

Try making other cards with your Level 1's! I know you can do it1
