4 Quick and Easy Valentine's Day Cards with Lisa

Hello everyone! Lisa, from The Crafting Cave, with you today. 
I have four fun Valentine's Day cards to share using

What's so quick and easy about this, right?

All bases for the cards are the same. Kraft cardstock cut to 4.25 x 5.5 matted with white cardstock die cut. You can cut and assemble the bases quickly.

Okay, I know what you are thinking. That's a lot of layered cutting. Here's a tip to make it quick.
Once you decide which captions you want to use go ahead and pull them onto the screen in the software you use. I group all the components of each caption together to re-size(so I have four groups). Once re-sized, you can pick out the layers you want to cut with each color cardstock. Ex. The first two cards bottom layers are red along with the lips and hearts on the third card. Arrange them to cut on the red cardstock at one time. Cutting by color is much quicker than cutting each caption separately.

Once you started cutting the layers you can begin assembling while the other layers cut.

You can cut these four captions easily in 10 minutes or less. Just be sure to gather all 
your supplies and have them handy when you start. With the card bases assembled ahead of time you can attach each caption once you have it assembled. I finished off with a little bling on each card. 
You can find more details on  my blog, The Crafting Cave.
Great project to let the kids help with. 

Hope you enjoy! 
As always, thank you for joining us and have a great weekend.


  1. These are all wonderful! Great idea to put multiple designs on the mat at once to speed things up.
