I made these uber cute valentines but was not able to go to the meeting due to Milo getting his shots the day before. I thought it would be fun to show how I made them in the hopes of inspiring other card makers floating out there.
To start I got these adorable red polka dot cards from JoAnns in the dollar bins. Not a bad deal if you ask me, six cards for a dollar!
Using my cricut (sigh, I really do love my cricut) I out eleven 3" ovals in black cardstock and eleven shadow ovals in white. I also cut out red hearts in various sizes and the letters I would need for the valentines.
I then cut out 1/8" thick red strips and about 1/2" thick black strips.
I glued the black strip about half way on the card and placed the red strip on top
I then glued the white and black ovals together and positioned them in the middle of the card as best I could.
Since the cards were Valentines Day themed I went with a fun flirty placement of "te quiero" accented with a couple of cute hearts.
So there you go, cute cards perfect for Valentines Day!
Next month is birthday cards so get excited!
