valentine's cards for jhestin

Pin It

my cutie nephew is having a valentine's party on friday at his daycare so I volunteered to make his valentine's cards for his 'classmates'. my sister was so happy with my offer...I guess nowadays the only thing you can find is cards with cartoon characters instead of the old style kind I had as a kid.

I just love the little a muse lovemonster and thought it would be perfect for super simple v-day cards. I embossed the base with heart blocks and added a little shimmer with frost versamark. the sentiment was printed on a mailing label (I didn't want to put anything the little ones could pull off) and punched with the word punch. the little heart next to the sentiment was made with a copic. I think I found how to make those on sharon harnist's paperfections blog some time ago. on the back, I added a piece of pink pirouette and hand wrote to: and from:...remember that??

I'm going to look around for some nostalgic valentines cards...I'd love to keep some in my stash!

paper - papertrey white, real red; stamps - a muse love monster, a muse heart trio; ink - memento rich cocoa, copics, versamark frost; accessories - cuttlebug embossing folder, circle punch, word punch, spica glitter pen
