Here are a few more valentines that were sent to the valentine card drive I donate to every year. I used my Big Shot with a Simon Says Stamp 'heart thank you' die set to make the heart, and stamped it with a SU! Pictogram punches sentiment, adding a punched heart done with a SU! mini heart punch. I used snippets of designer paper and black cardstock and rounded the corners and that was it! I wanted to add brads/sequins/gemstones - but those are not permitted on cards for kids, so this is pretty plain.
I had to make one in blue for the boys so I used the flip side of a piece of a dsp paper snippet with intense blue, only to find that the large, bold print on the other side showed through in the photograph. AWRGH! Oddly enough, IRL this wasn't evident, but my camera apparently has an Xray lens! LOL
Here's one made with a solid background piece of dsp and a snippet of satin ribbon.
I'm sharing with the Cuttlebug Mania challenge which is "Hobby." My hobby is making cards - especially valentines - and I make hundreds every year, sending over 150 mini ones to the grandchildren for their school exchanges as well as donating to Cards From the Heart Drive and Cards for Hospitalized Kids. Of all the cards I make, valentines are what I enjoy creating the most these days and I work on them all year long. I don't have any stamps that show someone stamping, so hopefully this entry will work for the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is filled with love, hope, and kindness.
