I told you I really enjoyed the color combo challenge over at Embellish Magazine, so I decided to do another card. I also really wanted to send Winter some cards for her Cards for St. Jude project and this one fit the bill for both. I plan to make some more "childish" valentines as well, but just in case I run out of time, at least I'll have this one and I think it would work well for a teenager.
Oh, and this was my very first time using my Cricut Expression, and let me just tell you...I AM IN LOVE! Ok, maybe in love is strong, no...it's just right! I am in love with that thing. That beautiful little magical machine. In love I tell ya.
I used the Cricut to cut out the text and the hearts. Then I sat and cut some Stampin' Dimensionals into itty-bitty little pieces to pop the letters. Wow...for such a simple design, this one took FOR-EV-ER. LOL, but it was worth it. I added the "wishes" sentiment from PTI's Giga Guide Lines set, a little faux stitching, a button, and finally...done. ;o)
Be sure to keep stopping by, I have some very BIG news to share with you guys shortly. And in honor of my big news, I will be doing some give-aways leading up to the announcement.
Speaking of big news...did you see that Courtney over at Practicing Creativity will be releasing her very first stamp set tonight?! It's a gorgeous set and definitely worth checking out. Good Luck Courtney!
