Valentine’s Day Card


Today I made a Valentine’s Day card for my mom.  She loves her coffee so I thought this would be perfect for her. I am enclosing a Dunkin Donuts card inside (her favorite place).  I used my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from the on-line store to create the cup. The punch is a Martha Stewart heart border punch. I also used Martha Stewart red embossing powder for the sentiment. The paper is from K&Company. I used My Creative Time Gift Card Sentiments for the stamp.

This was so easy to put together. I cut two of the cups, one in white and one in the print, and paper pieced them together. I used pop dots to adhere the cup to give it some dimension.

I am entering this card in Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific 2013-02-06 09.42.01-3Tuesday Challenge and Dynamic Duos Color Challenge.


Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge Celebrate Friendship

I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe October is almost over.

This week OWH has challenged us to make friendship cards for our troops to send home.

I made this card using the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I cut the little pig and hen at 4 inches. I added liquid pearls to the pig , hen and sun for dimension.  I also used glossy accents. The paper for the background is from the cricut celebrations paper pack. The ticket stamp is a Close to My Heart stamp and the little tag and sentiment is from teeny tag sentiments by  My Creative Time. The finished card measures 5.50 by 4.25.

I love to get feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment.
