At my last card camp, we created more than 200 cute cards altogether that were Valentine themed, but not specific to that day. This one was the favorite by most. I LOVE (get it?) the way it turned out. The yellow lighting doesn't do the soft colors justice. Imagine the love we sent out with our handy work when each card reached its recipient and put a smile on his or her face! That's one thing that makes this process worthwhile, not to mention the chance to get together with our girlfriends and meet new friends for an evening.My friends and I will make some of these "so very happy for you" cards at my next card camp on March 6. (Sierra is doing our precutting for this card. Thank you so much, Sierra!)
I just made this one (below) tonight and am still stuck on the love theme apparently. I love putting these cardstock colors together: pumpkin pie, pink passion, pretty in pink, and old olive. I just used a new stamp from my Trimtastic set (the ric rac stamp on the chocolate chip cardstock) for the first time.
This hugs and kisses card was fun, but since my slit-hole punch is missing, it was more challenging of a card to make at last month's get together. It was kind of a pain, but everyone managed (some more easily than others). Mandi was the person who first introduced me to these plastic "crystal" gems to use on cards. They add such a fun three-dimensional element to cards. The best part is that these little gems come in an assortment of colors and sizes from Hobby Lobby for under a dollar for twenty or thirty of them. (Shana is going to help do precutting for this card. Thank you, Shana!)
