valentine's day cards

I had a fun time creating some Valentine's cards this year. I usually forget to make them but this year I was ahead of the game. So far ahead in fact, I was even able to mail some out to family and friends!! I know amazing!!

These ones below I used my Sybill (Silhouette) to cut out the circle accents. There were three of them which is where I got the hearts that are on the front of the cards. But I liked these two styles better so they made it onto the cards. I added some stickles to the red hearts. The sentiment is heat embossed with white powder. I was happy with myself for getting these to turn out pretty close to what I had in my minds eye.

These next ones were so much fun to make. I created the background myself using one wooden stamp for the large red hearts ($1 bin at Michaels), the pink hearts are from a $1 acrylic set from Studio G and then inside the red hearts there are clear embossed hearts that I had from one of my Paper Smooches stamps sets. Pretty sure it was the sewing themed set.

I then used another wooden block $1 stamp for the 'with love' circle. I heat embossed that as well. Added a bit of twine and called it done. 

I shall post more tomorrow. Lots of stuff going on around here. Have you heard there is a HUGE vote coming on March 11th?? Make sure you vote yes for the new school. Thanks!!

Even the minions know we need a new school!!
