Meanwhile, all over blog-world, Valentine's Day cards are in full out production!! I'm excited about experimenting with this holiday, but there are only so many cards I can make for my hubby, family and friends--so, I'm sending a bunch of them for Winter's Card drive! Here are a few of the one's I've made so far. I'm hoping to make a few more before I mail them along soon (never know how long snail mail will take from Canada).
Like I said, I've been wanting to experiment . . . so all of the cards are different.
This first card also works for today's 365 Cards challenge -- Find a Substitute where we had to substitute a word with an image:
I just realized that my letter stickers need to be adhered down a bit better. Card is DCWV; ribbon is from Michaels' bin; Recollections black and red cardstock; unknown [cheapy] stamp set. I popped up the heart with foam dimensional after I wrapped some thin wire (I pulled out of wired ribbon for another project) around it. I'm hoping the blue in it helps give it a more "boyish" feel.
I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge to cut out the Owl for my second card, which has a window:
Card is DCWV; ribbon is from Michaels' bin; Recollections black cardstock; white gel pen for hand written sentiment.
Finally, this last card is made using a small Martha Stewart note card for the base:
Bazzil Yellow-green cardstock scallop cut using Storybook Cricut cartridge; Recollections red cardstock stamped with SU Love definition background stamp is; Studio G sentiment; dollar store flowers; Making Memories brad
