Finished with my Valentines!!!


I finally managed to finish up the Valentines for my son’s class and his teachers.  Let’s roll….


First, his teachers….I used a red cardstock base (folded at the top).  I added half of a My Favorite Things High Tea Doily (thin metal dye cut) to the front and tied some Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush ribbon in Grosgrain around the exposed edge.  Then I used a Tim Holtz Stylish Label cut from October Afternoon patterned paper directly on top.  To finish it off, I added a double layered die cut.  Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush cardstock and Spring Moss cardstock cut with some of their Fillable Frames dies.  I added some stamping on there from Papertrey Ink’s Fillable Frames and Fancy Flourishes.  Next stop the kids…




YOU ROCK!!!  When I saw the IPod die cut on the eCraft Entertainment SD card, I just knew I had to use it.  Using eCraftshop Pro, I altered the file to fit the look that I was going for. Then I went to cutting.  Using the eCraft Diecutable Cardstock from Paper Mill Store, I set the file up to cut multiples.  Then it was assembly time.  These valentines measure in a total finished size of 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 so that they could fit into some 4”x4” envelopes that I had leftover from another project.  The sentiment and grungy elements are from Papertrey Ink’s Grunge Me stamp set and stamped on black in their  Fresh Snow ink.  I also added a spritz of Perfect Pearls mist to the black card front.  Now to go with these valentines are of course some ROCK candy and some Pop ROCKS!  Pun completely intended.
