More Valentine Cards

For the first time in a long time I made Valentines cards.  As usual I got carried away and created several of them.  I an planning to enter one of these cards in the Tilda's Town Challenge #39 - Anything Goes. These are shaped cards using Spellbinders Labels Twenty.  Norma Lee is the mega talented gal who inspires me to try really different things. 

I made some very special ones for my son and his wife and my daughters.

Here is a picture of all four of the cards.  The image and flower colors vary with each card.  All images are colored with Copics. 

Each one has a heart stand up.  The heart was cut using Spellbinders Scalloped Hearts. The sentiment was computer generated. Each one is attached to a toothpick and strip of plastic to help it stand up.

The rosebuds are also attached with a plastic strip.  The stems were too flimsy to stand by themselves.

The green leaves were cut with Doohickeys die Heart Swirl from DCWV Shimmer stack.  It was also glued to a toothpick and plastic strip.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hooked on Craft.

Here are individual pictures of each one.

 Here a couple more scalloped shaped heart easels.

This is the design I made for my girlfriends at church who work with me on the Christmas Card Stamp Camp presentations.

This one uses the older Baking Tilda image.  The banner is a Magnolia.  The sentiment is from an old Hanna Stamps set.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  The stand up sentiment is the same as the other cards.

I am going to enter one of the cards in the Tilda's Town Challenge # 39 Anything Goes.

I am so glad you stopped by to visit for a few minutes.  Hope to see you again soon!
