Valentine's Day Cards
Wow....I thought I'd be posting these last week but the last few days have gone by without crafting time to spare. I was waiting to make the last card, the one with the flower and blue mixed in. I must say, I'm delighted with the way it turned out. Now, that is in comparison to the other two cards which are really quite simple; a purposeful thing, as I am teaching an abbreviated class at my church and wasn't really sure what the experience people would have, so I made those two cards easy for all levels to assemble.
I used primarily Quick Quotes paper on all 3 cards as well as a die-cut sheet for the shapes and sentiments. The approach to these cards was different for me, as I usually grab my sketches and find paper that appeals to me or the theme, but I had the paper and the die-cut sheets provided and tried to design around them. Not my favorite process, but I like a challenge!
So, enjoy your week and I hope the weather is behaving...where ever you may be.
