Valentine's Day Cards

I created some interesting cards today for the family.

I wanted to make a fun card for my darling daughter, and this is what I came up with:

It was my first attempt at an easel card.  I made a tri-fold card before and it came out good, so I decided to give this a try.  I really like how she can put in on her dresser and see the entire card.  I noticed some using Brads to help hold up the card, and thought it was brilliant.

This is a side view.  She loves the color orange, so I had to go with that color

I made this one for my hubby.  He's out of town this week (and next), but he will eventually get it.

This is another card I made with by just cutting paper. It's last year's Bazzill Valentine card stock.   If you noticed my cards don't have a lot of dimension, it is because I like to create cards for Operation Write Home.  It's a wonderful organization that utilizes crafters to create A2 cards to send to troops overseas to write on and send back to their families in the states.  They also have A TON of videos, tutorials, sketches, challenges, blogs, etc.  Since they send so many cards overseas and don't want them to get damaged or returned for over the limit weight, we minimize the dimension of the cards.  You should check them out, perhaps subscribe to their blog, they are so inspiring.

I'm going to enter the Fantabulous Cricut Craft Challenge this week and hope for a goodie!

Have a great weekend and ENJOY MONDAY if you have the day off!

God Bless,
