If you don't want to buy into the store-bought card craze, have a go at making your own Valentine's card and put a touch of love into your crafting.
In this post, you'll be able to see 10 ideas for last minute Valentine's Day card ideas, so take a scroll through and see which one takes your fancy!
1. Lots of Love card
What says 'I love you' more than a gorgeous repeating heart pattern? With the Lots of Love Double-Sided Layerable Create-a-Card Die, you'll be able to create a fun panel with extra depth and dimension. This card also features the Stitch Edge Heart Dies as a layered embellishment - doesn't it look great?
2. Love Always shaker card
If you want to steer away from the typical red and pink colour schemes, try out this pastel dream of a card. Use the Love Always Shaker Card Stamp and Die set to create the central hanging element and make your card much more interactive. Fill it with sequins or glitter for even more fun!
3. All my LOVE card
We absolutely love this chocolate box-style easel card, which features the All my LOVE sentiment from the Fancy Fonts Stamp and Die sets. Finish it off with a gorgeous black box and black embellishments for a bit of an edge. The overall effect will be absolutely stunning!
4. Radiating Love You foiled card
Show someone just how much your love radiates out for them by using the Love You Radiating Foil Stamp 'n' Cut Die. This set helps you to cut out a central shape and foil a sentiment with extra foiled embellishments around the shape. It's the perfect way to show how much love your heart is filled with!
5. Nesting hearts card
You all know how much we love a nesting die, but look how creatively this card has used the Torn Edge Heart Dies! Featuring a little pocket on the front for a pull-out tag, you can get creative with colours and printed paper to really bring this design to life.
6. Edge'ables card
We think we speak for everyone when we say that we love the Edge'ables range, but we're particularly fond of the Word Edge'ables. They're great for so many occasions and look fantastic! Try using the Love Edge'able Stamp and Die to create a floating sentiment on the front of your card, then pair it up with other gorgeous embellishments for a completed look.
7. I love you for all that you are card
We stock a huge assortment of sentiment stamps, some of which are perfect for every day use, but loads that are ideal for occasions, including Valentine's Day. The card above features the Reason I Smile stamp, but you can find a whole host of other sentiment stamps on our website. Just pair them up with pretty paper and simple embellishments for an easy card!
8. Love Heart wrap die card
We love a card that looks a lot more complicated than it is - it just makes the reactions from the recipient so much better! Use the Love Heart Wrap Die to add a gorgeous heart band around the middle of your card, which unlocks in the centre. Pair it up with muted shades for a fun pop!
9. Foam flower with love card
Foam flowers are perfect for pretty much any occasion and we'll let you in on a little secret... they last longer than a real bouquet. Create some beautiful flowers to add on to a card like the one above, and really elevate your Valentine's card design. Use soft colours for a delicately feminine look.
10. I love you pop out card
Last, but certainly not least, we've got the Pop Out Word Dies, which promise to bring a fun touch to your cards. Just imagine opening up a card and having a gorgeous sentiment jump out at you? That's what you can achieve with these dies! Pair up a love-themed sentiment with beautiful sparkles and red shades for a perfect Valentine's Day look.
