Stampin' Up!s Country Floral Lane Suite Creates the Most Lovable Valentine Card Ever for Your Special Someone

Valentines is just a couple weeks away, so please help yourself to my original card layout as inspiration for what you have in your papercrafting stash. (The Stamp Set and Punch Bundle are currently sold out and Stampin' Up! is predicting it will receive more inventory by April 17, 2023. However, that doesn't really help you make Valentines right now, thus my suggestion to use what you already have in your stash.)

Your loved one will appreciate any beautiful handmade card you create when it is given with love. But if you do already own the Country Floral Lane Bundle and some of the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper then you will be ready to create this card that's full of love card very easily with my directions below.
