SEVERAL VALENTINE CARDS

Since I hadn't posted something every day I though I would end the week showing the rest of the Valentines I made.  Besides the 97 my friends and I made together, I made an additional 26 for the grandchildren and friends.

These are some of the Valentines that my husband and I send to people that we know personally in the Independent Living Center and the Care Center.  To begin I embossed 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pieces with either a heart folder or the dotted swiss.  I used a Memory Box die for the first card and then a set of dies from Spellbinders for the other five. 

The Spellbinders set includes two large hearts and two smaller hearts.  The large hearts can be used separately.  The two smaller hearts can be inserted in the center of the open large hearts and run through the die cutting machine.  And the two smaller hearts can be used in either of the large dies.  You will see below #2 and #3 use the same large item but then different inserts for the design.


#1 (Memory Box die)


#2


#3


#4 I popped a smaller heart in the opening

The next two cards used the second large die and with the different inserts.


#5


#6

Today I actually took the time to make four cards.  It felt really good to do something besides Valentines.  All four cards use the same die but I will post them individually next week for you to see.

THANK YOU FOR COMING BY TODAY!

My favorites are Valentine #2,3 and 4. I like the scallop lacy look on the outside of the heart. They are all very nice though. Wishing you and Gary a very Happy Valentines Day!

Hey Ms. Vicki! A wonderful assortment of die cut hearts there! I'm sure whomever gets one of these beauties will appreciate it!

WITH DEEPEST SYMPATHY

One of the die cuts I made in Des Moines.  The paper is also some I purchased there.  Thank you for stopping by today!
