Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts. For detailed information and/or instructions, please click on their blog link.



Carolyn from GRANNY MA's CREATIVE BLOG created the two cards shown above.  She says that they are simple to make.  Here's the details: " I used pre-cut card stock to create the top Valentine Card .  I threaded the black and white polka dot ribbon through the heart diecut which is one of the Creative Pointe's VALENTINE HEARTS set files.  Two hearts joined together accent a corner.  I stamped the sentiment in black, and placed two small hearts below each end."  The second card was created as follows:  "I used  a heart svg from the Heart Freebies set from svgshop.com.  First I started with a card base of pink 5.5" x 11".  I placed black and white polka dot washi tape across the top section of the front of the card base.  Then placed a piece of white card stock just below the tape.  On the white card mat, I placed a black and white checkered ribbon and then foam taped the heart to approximately the center.  Stamped the sentiment in black ink..a quick card to send to family or friend."

Cindy from THE CREATIVE POINTE created a simple card that features the striking color combo of black and red.  "I love vintage images and thought this one would be perfect for a Valentine's Day card.  If you pop over to my blog, you can grab it to create your own romantic version."  She accented the photo with the SCROLLED HEART file from the "Valentine Hearts" set at the top and at the bottom, the LOVE HEADING file from the "Valentine" Set.

  
Shelissa from SHELISSA'S CRAFT STUDIO created the two cards shown above using elements from the VALENTINE HEARTS file. On the top card she used her machine's print and cut feature.  She also used her pen tool on the cards.

Octavia from T's CORNER FOR SCRAPPIN' used Cupid from the VALENTINE set and dressed him in embossing powder and Stickles.  The background paper is from the "Recollections With Love" pack. She punched all corners of the card with a Martha Stewart heart corner punch.  The white hearts are covered with glitter flocking and the bow/arrow were painted with a Krylon Silver paint pen.

Pam from MZLAVR2's CREATIONS again used a non-traditional Valentine's file and made it fit the theme.  The ladybug on the card is from the GARDEN FRIENDS--SET TWO  file.  The paper and twine are from a muse studio.

 Victoria from PAPER SQUIRREL created her card using kraft cardstock.  She says:  "It's a bit of a challenge to make a Valentine's Day card masculine. I just love pink, red, and white used together, so I decided not to fight it. I used the pink and red and white, but grounded it all with an aqua blue "Love" from The Creative Pointe's VALENTINE SVG file set and a kraft base. I also used a fun technique to liven up the background. Visit my blog for all the details!"

Tina from TINA'S SCRAP CORNER created this card all full of hearts.  Tina said:  "I used the Creative Pointe’s FANCY HEARTS set (this is a really cute set) for the 2 red hearts that were the negative cuts of the cupid hearts. I also used one of the hearts with an arrow on the inside of the card too, you’ll see that over at my blog."
