Love Heart Valentine Card

Learn how to make this Valentine’s Day card with alcohol inks.

When it came time to make my husband’s Valentine’s Day card, I turned to my new favorite craft book…


Crafting with Alcohol Inks by Allison Murray.

I enjoyed using alcohol inks when I made a Christmas ornament this year.

Here are the supplies I used:

I applied a few drops of the red and silver alcohol inks to the applicator.


Using a straight up and down gentle pouncing motion, I covered the card once (left) and again (right).

I continued applying the alcohol inks until evenly distributed. I had stopped at this point for my Christmas ornament, but thought a more thorough coverage was needed for the card since I wanted to use stenciled white paint on top.

To minimize the amount of white showing, I added more red and silver to the applicator, as well as some blending solution and continued adding the colors until I thought the white stenciled paint design would stand out.

I centered the Love Heart stencil, and pounced on white enamel paint with a foam stencil brush. I waited until the alcohol inks felt dry, but they bled into the white paint. I liked the effect, so that was not a problem.

I will stamp a Valentine sentiment inside to finish the card for my husband.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you.
