Cut the cardstock to measure 8 inches by 11 inches. Mark the center and score the cardstock by running the end of the bone folder along a ruler the length of the paper, creating an imprinted line. The fold will be exactly even in comparison to hand folding it. Draw the bone folder or a craft stick along the crease. You will have a 4-by-5-1/2-inch card.
Ink your stamp and stamp an image on to the cover of the card or a separate piece of paper. You could also use a die-cut image or stickers on the front of the card.
Color the stamped image with ink pens or colored pencils. Use a craft knife to cut out the image if you stamped it on a separate sheet.
Adhere the separate stamped or die-cut image (if using one) to the cover.
Use a rubber stamp, die-cut, stickers or handwritten word or phrase to start the beginning of your romantic message on the front of the card. Use the word love or any other romantic wording.
Add a handwritten or typed poem, a romantic phrase, or an original message inside the card. Adhere it if it's on a separate sheet.
