Hello Crafty Friends! Even though I'm quite sick of winter, dangerous travels, and falling in a snowy parking...I do have a special place in my heart for February. It's my birthday month and a week from my birthday is Valentine's Day. It actually happens to be a really good month to coop up and craft...and for me that usually means I am hustling to finish my scrapbook from the year before. So all in all, winter isn't too bad minus the concussion I'm recovering from. ;)
Last night in my concussion-ary stillness, I was itching to do something with my hands. My kind husband was not letting me do housework so I sneaked down to the stamp room and started creating Valentine kits for you. Ha, ha...I'm such a rebel.
I only had enough supplies to make 3 kits.
The kits are $10 each and will make 4 Valentine cards.
- 4 card bases
- 4 envelopes
- 4 doily hearts in two colors
- 5 double-sided designer papers in 4x6"
- 2 clear buttons
- 2 large pearls
- 4 pieces of twine
- 4 die-cut sets of XO, also embossed
Here are two cards that I made. You could make TWO of each similar to these styles. Two will use pearls and two will use clear buttons. The cool thing about double-sided papers is that you can make all your cards unique with your own designs.
Choose one of the designer paper sheets to cut into 1.5" x 4" strips for the four cards. My strips are not the same in these two cards because I was using up scraps of mine, but your strips should be the same to be able to make 4 cards with the other 4 sheets of paper.
If you wanted a vintage feel, sponge brown ink around all the pieces. :)
EMBOSSED X & O
The kits are first come first serve. Remember, I only have three. Shipping is $3 if you are long-distance.
Have a great day and stay warm!
