Valentines for Kids



This Inky Antics bear is one of my favorite images for making Valentines for kids. I colored him with Copics and die cut the panel with a Gina Marie stitched oval, and matted with a piece of red that was die cut with a SB scalloped oval. The border was done with a die I found at a trade show some years ago, and it's by Ellentina.


Here's the same cute bear on a 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 card, with a plain red backing. I've made a lot of smaller cards with this design, both for the Cards From the Heart drive, as well as for my 2 DGD's valentine card assortment.

Wishing you a happy Friday and thanks so much for stopping by!

What a sweetie! Your passel of VD cards is really motivating me to make some. I made some on Saturday, but they were nowhere near as cute.
