Thank you Cards
Valentine's Day Cards
With Valentine's Day approaching quickly, I was in the mood to post a couple of cards appropriate for the occasion. Cards are fun to make because they only take a few minutes, you can have a lot of fun is 'accessories', and people love getting cards in the mail (even if many of us worship the email gods now).
This one is a personal favorite. Blue and Pink are by far the two best colors in the whole world! I am always thrilled when I can find ways to incorporate both in a project. This card is made with Stampin' Up stamps, along with coordinating cardstock and ribbon from my stash. The flowers are from a set called "Garden Silhouettes" and the sentiment is from "Wonderful Words".
This stamp, also from Stampin' Up, is called "So Many Sayings". It is a set of three stamps that have so many phrases on them you could make a card for just about any occasion. It has wonderful flexibility. I went super simple with this, but you could add hearts, or change the color scheme to make it more whimsical. Lots of fun!
Yes, I am a Stampin' Up junky. This set, called "Simple Florals" offers variety in how you use them. I have eliminated the vase before to make just a flower, or in this case include the vase. I used the chalks to add color, and a little ribbon for depth. Dollar spots and ribbon sales are always trouble; almost as much as fabric. The sentiment stamped on this card is from Close to my Heart and called "For Every Occasion" and it truly is! I have used this set more times than I can remember. It is my go-to when I am looking for a sentiment.
I thought I was doing better with pictures, but clearly still need to improve my lighting. Hope you enjoyed the cards. Hope to get some more soon.
