Valentine Mail

I saw this cute image today at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps and I just had to make a card! 


I used the pre-coloured digi and mounted it on a turquoise scrap, tore the bottom, and added twine.  I decided to make my own backing paper by stamping the sentiment and tiny heart repeatedly in red on a white scrap and then affixed to the card.  I punched three hearts from a turquoise scrap and affixed to the backing paper and then added turquoise heart gems.  Lastly I affixed the image to the card with foam tape.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Sentiment (Craft Smart), tiny heart (Dollarama)
  • Ink:  Ancient Page - Cardinal         Red Card Base:  Dollarama
  • Cardstock:  Recollections              Heart Punch:  Michaels
  • Twine:  American Crafts               Gems:  Dollar Store
  • Sketch:  Crafting Musketeers       Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Heart Squares

  16. That's cute... However concerning your entry in the Hobbycutz challenge, I don't really see how a Valentine's card should be considered as a "for a child" card?

    1. Thank you - I appreciate your feedback. I give Valentine cards to all my nieces and nephew - they are 4, 8, 10, and 12. Haven't decided which niece this one will go to, but that's who I made the card for - so definitely for a child. Looking at the card, I would not give this to an adult.
