Crafty Chicks Valentine “Bee Mine”

Crafty ChicksWelcome to the Crafty Chicks Valentine Blog Hop!  I have just become part of the Crafty Chicks group and I am pretty exciting.   They are a group of creative gals who met on the web and decided to come together and share our passion for paper crafting with you.  Each month there is a different theme and this month it is Valentines.  If you are coming from Scrappin’ Madge’s blog, welcome!

I thought I would make some wee Valentine’s Day cards for my project.  I decided to use a Webster’s Pages gorgeous postcard set for the base of my cards.  Actually, all of the paper products for this project are from WP.

I just took the postcards and folded them in half.  From front to back, they are so pretty.

I used a cheapy bee stamp I got at Micheals with black ink on patterned paper and punched it out with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch.

I then cut a small strip from the same paper and inked the word mine on it.  Both were applied with pop-up dots to a different patterned card stock (which I rounded the corners and inked first).

I also tied a little baker’s twine before attaching it to the cards.

I kept the inside simple, with just a little “For You” and the date.  So there is lots of room to write some sweetness.  I will have a few sets of these available in the boutique.

I also quickly whipped up a normal card to give you an idea of what else you could do with the same idea.
