Valentine Inspirations





Hi everyone!
I'm back with a few more Valentine cards today. I've got a bunch of them really, but I haven't had time to photograph them yet. I found the inspiration for these two cards in the greeting card section at our local drug store. Imagine that! LOL. I hardly ever pass up a card display because I find they are awesome when it comes to finding inspiration for colors and layouts.

Both of the cards were made using the Cricut for the big hearts. On the pink, red and black card I used a bunch of my flower punches to fill in the heart, and then I added different "centers" to the flowers with brads, eyelets, dew drops and rhinestones. The embossed background on that card was made with the Cuttlebug and the circles and flowers embossing folder. I'm not sure if that's what it's really called, but that's what I call it. :o) The red card was made using a bunch of scraps from my red scrap paper stash, and the flowers were made with punches. I also used a few Primas in addition to the punched flowers.

Well, I'm off to get back to housework. I hope to be back with weekend with some more cards I finished up! Have a blessed day!
