7 more cards for Valentine's Day.

As I mentioned in my last post I had fun making a whole bunch of Valentine's Day cards a couple of weeks ago and I am back again to share some more from that weekend.

I have to say that the first one is one of my absolute favourites.

Cardstock - Bazzill. Patterned paper and die cuts - Crate 
Paper. Stamps and die - Lawn Fawn. Enamel dots - hand 
made. Twine - American Crafts.

I love it so much that I don't think that I can part with it. It's all in the small details, the matching die cuts, the roller skate ticket, the punny sentiment and I had fun 'lacing' the boot too!

I need no excuses to make a shaker card!

Cardstock and glitter paper - American Crafts. Patterned paper 
and ribbon- Doodlebug Design. Die - Lawn Fawn. Colouring 
medium - Promarker. Heart sprinkles - Cake shop. Nested 
heart cut file #23523 - Silhouette America.

I nested 3 hearts and then separated them in Silhouette Studio and cut them from white, red and pink paper. I then glued the 3 panels together to create the nested heart. Sprinkles from the cake store made a fun shaker addition, as did some very old Doodlebug paper and ribbon. I cut the Scripty love die from a foam sheet so it would pop on the front of the card.

As I said, no excuse for a shaker!

Cardstock - Bazzill. Die - Lawn Fawn. Sentiment font Paprika #40924 
- Silhouette America. Shaker contents - Poundland.

This was super simple to make. I cut an A2 panel and ran it through my silhouette machine with the sketch pen setting to create the sentiment, I then die cut the word 'love' with my Lawn Fawn die, the panel was then mounted on acetate and foam tape. The contents were purchased at my local Poundland in the nail art section, I love the scale of the sequins.

Do you ever rediscover things that you forgot you owned in your craft room? C'mon, I know I am not alone and I do it an unhealthy number of times a month too :/ In this instance it was the stamp set.

I like how fresh and clean the card feels compared to some of the others I have made.

I purchased the heart acetate on this card many moons ago and this is the first time I have used it.

Cardstock - Bazzill. Patterned paper - Prima. Sentiment 
panel - Crafty Secrets. Flowers - Hobbycrafts, Crate Paper.
Decorative pin - Dainty Paperie.

Shabby chic is not my usual style but it worked well with the sentiment.

What's your favourite occasion to craft for? As you can see one of mine is Valentine's Day, closely followed by Easter, I love the springy colours and soft pastels.

Thanks for reading,
Ang.
