Every year I try to come up with something new and fun for Lila to give as Valentines. (You can see another fun idea HERE.) This year we decided to make simple, foil, scratch-off cards! And I have FREE downloads for you in case you want to make some too. (See below.)

My video shares two options for adding scratch-off features to your cards. My favorite way is to use Inky Antics Scratch Off Stickers. This is SO easy! I simply printed my download on a laser printer and then added Gina K Foil with my laminator. I then added an Inky Antics 2″ Circle Scratch Off Sticker and mated the piece with red cardstock. We also add a $1 coin to the back with a piece of Gold Glitter Washi Tape.

I feel the red and silver foil add so much to the card, but you could also just print the download in color to save time.

If you don’t have scratch-off stickers, you can create your own with packing tape, silver acrylic paint, and dish soap. This works well, too!

There are MANY fun ways you can add scratch-off features to cards. I will be sure to share others in the future!


I have two FREE downloads for you! I hired Liz Poest to create these. Liz owns Encourage Co and is my go-to for custom lettered pieces for my home! And I love what she designs for today.

  12. Hi there Jennifer: I have that SSS It’s no secret stamp and forgot I had it. These are great valentines and I have two great grandchildren now who will be into this soon. No matter how old one gets, if we are card makers, we need something for all ages, hobbies, interests, and events that personalize a special card for their mailbox. These are adorable and I am going to copy them since you offered. Thank you so much. And yes, I try and never miss one of your videos, bookmarking them right where I can find them. Enjoy this fun stuff, your little Lila will be a grown up teen before you know it, she is growing so fast. I’ve had fun watching her grow up this much so far, more than I can say. Thanks for sharing your family with us. You certainly have a wonderful one!!! God Bless .

  16. What adorable cards! I have made some scratch off “lottery” tickets for crops in the past, but the recipe wasn’t this easy, I’ll do this one when I need them again. I actually have some scratch off sheets that I can use for this too. I’ve already made my Valentines cards, but maybe I’ll keep this in mind for another year. I love the idea of doing them for other occasions too. Thanks so much for all the great things you show us.

Thank you so much for all you share on your blog!!! XOXO

  19. Thank you for this adorable Valentine idea! My daughter made hers already for this year, but I am definitely going to keep these in mind for next year (when my son is in school, too!) I really appreciate you sharing the DIY scratch off mixture, too. I want to give that a try soon!

  24. Hi! I was trying to figure out how to do a scratch off idea I had and I stumbled upon your video a few weeks ago- which has resulted in me becoming a follower of you, everywhere! This is such a cute idea! I was wondering, what are the dimensions of the cards? (I love the look of them and think the sizing would be perfect for the original project idea I was working on…) Thank you so much for inspiring this crafty girl, I appreciate it!

  25. I can’t tell you how many times your videos have saved me from throwing out materials I could not figure out how to use! Thank you!

  26. I have an older HP Laser printer. I bought Gina K red foil and couldn’t get a quality transfer. I was really disappointed. I don’t know if it was the printer or my laminator didn’t get hot enough. I would love to hear a few tips. I ended up printing the color version for my event.
