Still like to pass out Valentines to those you near and dear? Then check out these sweet and silly Crazy Dogs matchbook style Valentines cards you can make yourself in no time at all. I absolutely love Tim Holtz’s line of Crazy critters, and with cats, dogs, and birds to choose from, you have tons of fun options for notecards for all the animal lovers in your life.
These matchbook style cards add a fun interactive element, very reminiscent of those fold-and-seal boxed Valentines cards you may have had as a child. Simply tuck and un-tuck the front flap to open and close. The simple staple at the bottom is all you need to keep them sealed. Super easy and so fun.
Let’s take a closer look.
Step 1: For each Valentine, cut a 3 x 8.5 piece of Distress Heavystock cardstock. Using a scoring board or bone folder, score the long side at 4” and 8”. Fold along the crease lines, creating a top folding card with a thin bottom flap and folds up and over the front.
Step 2: Dab Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink randomly onto a non-stick craft mat. Spritz the inks liberally with water using the Distress Sprayer. Press the front of the cards down into the ink mixture. Dry the inks with a heat tool, or allow them to dry naturally. Repeat the process if you wish to intensify the colors.
Step 3: Insert the front card panel into the Zig Zag embossing folder, and run the card through your die cutting machine.
Step 4: Apply Spun Sugar Distress Ink to the raised embossed areas using a mini ink blending tool. Apply Brushed Corduroy ink to the edges of each card.
Step 5: Rub a bit of Vintage Distress Collage Medium onto the edges of the cards using the tip of your finger. Set the cards aside and allow them to dry completely.
Step 6: Cut .5” strips of brown Distress Cardstock. Lightly sand the paper, and then adhere them to the bottom flaps. Trim off the excess from the sides. Fold the flaps up, and place a Tiny Attacher staple along the bottom edge. Note: * You may need to trim off about a .25” from the bottom of the front card panel so that it will lay flat once tucked under the bottom stapled flap.
Step 7: Stamp the Mini Crazy Dogs onto watercolor paper using Jet Black Archival Ink.
Step 8: Watercolor the images using Distress Inks. To color with your ink pads, simply press them onto your non-stick craft sheet, mix them with a bit of water, and pick up the color using a wet paintbrush. Allow the ink to dry. Add Glossy Accents to eyes, noses, and dog tags. Set aside to dry. Die cut the images using the matching Crazy Dogs Framelits dies.
Step 9: Stamp a Valentine sentiment from the Crazy Talk stamp set inside the card using Jet Black Archival Ink. Stamp the dog images again onto the inside, as well.
Step 10: Adhere die cut dogs onto the front of the cards using foam adhesive. Stamp sentiment onto watercolor cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. Trim out the sentiments by hand, and adhere next to the dogs using foam adhesive. Tie natural jute string around the top of the card front and tie into a simple bow.
Step 11: Ink a piece of watercolor cardstock with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using a mini ink blending tool.
Step 12: Die cut the three smallest hearts from the Heartfelt Bigz Die from the inked watercolor paper. You will need two hearts for each card. Apply Crazing Distress Collage Medium to each heart die cut, and set aside to dry.
Step 13: Apply Vintage Photo Distress Crayon to the heart die cuts, and smooth the pigment into the crazing cracks using the tip of your finger. Wipe away any excess crayon pigment. Cover the hearts with Glossy Accents, and allow them to dry completely. Add hearts to the card fronts using foam adhesive.
My name is Audrey Pettit. I live in Cary, North Carolina and have two wonderful kiddos, Peter and Nicole. I started scrapbooking and card-making about a decade ago after being invited to a friend’s house for a stamping party. That party opened my eyes to a whole new world of paper-crafting, and I have never looked back. Visit Audrey’s blog at: AudreyPettit.Wordpress.com.

Looking for some winter inspiration in an island with no snow can be quite the task! So I searched my head and remembered one of my dreams, that of seeing the Northern Lights at least once in my lifetime! When Ranger put together an Alcohol Ink Kit I decided to jump in to have it all, again with the island situation, alcohol inks don’t fly so I patiently waited five weeks for them to come by boat! But I was soooo happy, in it was a set of stamps that had the perfect sentiment: Own your Dreams!
Tim Holtz has this quote in another set of stamps “Out of limitations comes creativity,” it’s one I’ve used quite a number of times because of the truth it carries. So back to my card, I wanted to create the Aurora Borealis but my kit only provided Stream, Sunshine Yellow and Red Pepper… Sooo here comes creativity to the rescue, I decided to experiment with Ice Resin tints since I had Lolite and Beryl and they looked like the thing I needed!
Step 1: Squirt a line of beryl and lolite in your applicator tool with felt.
Step 2: Swipe the applicator down your paper, I was going for the Northern Lights so I swirled and gave it some movement.
Step 3: Squirt the Stream Alcohol Ink on your applicator tool and finish that sky!
Step 4: Add some Blending Solution to help you shade the blue in the sky.
Step 5: Add Archival Ink to your pine trees stamp. Check out the swirl I created at the bottom of the stamp by using the Applicator Tool to remove some of the ink and in doing so decrease the line that the stamp has. I did not follow protocol here, I started stamping some of the trees on the left and some of the trees on the right, varying the height and leaving my northern lights to be the star. We’re going for a forest vibe here!
Step 6: Now you’re ready for a blizzard! Load an old brush with the Distress Grit Paste (insert addicted to the stuff here) and spray those trees away!
Step 7: I used some Distress Rock Candy Glitter over the wet paste. Then I stamped Own your Dreams inside my card.
Step 8: Here comes experiment #2! I squirted Ice Resin tints Lolite and Beryl and Stream Alcohol Ink along with some mixative over my Craft Sheet.
Step 9: Using my stamp I swirled the colors together.
Step 10: I hand stamped over a blank porcelain mug!

Step 1: Gather together, all 4 tags, paints and blending tools.
Step 2: Using the Postbox Red cover areas of your tag with the blending too. Then add the Bubblegum Pink to areas left. Keep going over in turn until you are happy with the depth of colour and the blend.

Step 4: Attach them together both front and back with the Journaling tape. Fold in concertina style.
Step 5: Using a pencil and the Dylusions Journal Block, create a border going all the way around your tags.
Step 6: Using Dylusions Black Marble Paint, colour in the border. Leave to once side to full dry.
Step 7: Stamp out the images you want and cut them out. Colour your images using Ink Spray filled waterbrushes.
