I had so much fun making this Paper Blooms Valentines Day card. And I’m excited to share this tutorial with you today! When I first saw the Paper Blooms designer series paper in the 2021 Sale-a-Bration catalog, I knew it would be the one free product that I would get multiples of. I love the fun design and adore the color combo.
As I mentioned in my last post, I volunteered to do a live presentation of making a card using the Always & Forever bundle and show 4-5 different ways of using the bundle stamps and dies. If you’d like to see that live presentation, leave a note in the comments below. I can invite you to join the Facebook group where the event was held. There were several video presentations of different ideas on using the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration products. I know I was inspired! Best of all, the event was free.
The Paper Blooms Valentines Day Card Design
When I sat down to design this card, I tried to make the beautiful, scripty “Love” die cut work. It just didn’t work with this fun paper. So, I pivoted and pulled out the blocky Playful Alphabet dies and found those were the perfect style.
I was able to incorporate the Always & Forever stamps into the card though. Instead, I used them as the sentiment on the inside of the card. This card was easy to put together once I had the design worked out. It’s just a 4×5¼” piece of DSP set against a Basic White card base. I used my favorite Stitched So Sweetly frame dies on Petal Pink cardstock and backed that with a scrap of Old Olive cardstock that I had laying around that was the perfect size. Then, I cut the letters out of Night of Navy paper, adhered them to the Petal Pink, and popped the whole thing up on some dimensionals.
On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the Always & Forever stamp set and stamped it in Night of Navy ink. Easy peasy! Quick and done. I hope you enjoy making this card as much as I did. Let me know how yours turned out down in the comments below.

I am revamping the Crafty Friends Club Vault and am working on the instruction sheet for this card and this past Tuesday’s card. The instruction sheets will now be housed in the revamped Crafty Friends Club Vault instead of directing you to my Stampin Up site. There were too many broken links using that site and I’d much rather spend my time making cards than fixing broken links.
To make it simpler here on my site, when I get the new Vault set up you won’t need to log in anymore, just enter the password and find the free downloadable files. I’m even adding a bunch of new tutorials to the site as a future enhancement. Leave a note in the comments below and you’ll be the first to be notified when I get this done.
This card uses the fun products from the 2021 Sale-a-bration and Spring Jan-Jun Mini Catalogs from Stampin’ Up. I made a lot of other cards using products from these catalogs. You can find those projects in one spot by following the link in the button below.
