Welcome 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.
I am pleased to tell you our sponsor this month is me!! You will get two packs of the lovely Valentine’s cards I just created and a package of vintage papers and ephemera.
