ATC Valentines



Here are 2 Valentines I cut in a 5 x 3-1/2 size. I folded them in half on the 5" side to make an ATC sized valentine - perfect for little hands. Better yet, you can make 5 of these from one sheet of cardstock. I used stitched square dies from Gina Marie Designs to cut the white square, then used a SU! Window Box thinlet die to cut the design in the center. I placed it on a panel of real red cardstock, cut with a MFT fishtail banner, then stamped a sentiment from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes onto black with Versamark ink, and heat-embossed it with white ep. I used my hexagon punch to cut the fishtails on the ends.
I made quite a few of these in different colors for the Cards from the Heart drive shown on my sidebar. I need to get a few more done and get these into the mail as she needs them by the end of the month! Christmas is just behind us and now Valentine's day is rapidly approaching! Gotta get a move-on!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

So pretty, and I love your idea of using the thinlets to create the center design. It reminds me of the Dutch folk art designs, and it's so pretty with that lovely bright red background. The black fishtail banner really stands out, and some little sweetheart is going to just love receiving this pretty thing. TFS & Hugs
