Valentine’s Day Cards – HeartFelt Animals

By Cards

Hi All,

Did you catch the pun in the title there? These adorable cards were created using felt animals that share a common ‘heart’ shaped theme. I didn’t want to over-think these cards too much and just wanted to fun animals to take center stage.

I used a dry embossing technique and added embossed hearts to the background and added a fun animal to each card. I didn’t have many Valentine’s Day sentiments that were kid friendly (kisses, xoxo, extreme declarations of love etc..just seems a little too much for my style). So I just kept things super simple.

Here they are!

These cards measure 3×3″ and are just the right size to hand out in classrooms with a little treat! I made some cards last year with these felt-friends and they were a huge hit! They just had to make a reappearance this year.

Valentine’s Day Series – Day 10

By Cards

Hi all,

Today’s card is really better described as a tag. I decided to go smaller than the average Valentine’s Day card and make some cute tags that can be added to a gift or tied to some chocolates to give out to friends on valentine’s day. This tag is truly a one layer tag. I simply used some stamping layers and a small eyelet to ensure the twine doen’t tear the paper.
