Love with Hugs & Kisses

It is time to make a few Valentine's Day cards. For this card I used Sketch 3 of RAQ's Card Sketch Challenges 01/11/11- 01/18/11 on the Cricut Messageboard. Carolyn designed and shared these sketches. Great sketches and Thank You Carolyn! My card is an unusual size for me, but I was inspired by a pack of Recollections No. 10 red envelopes that was an after Christmas clearance purchase. Why not use the envelopes for Valentines! I cut a piece of red cardstock at 8 X 9 1/4 inches and folded in half to make a 4 X 9 1/4 inches card to fit the envelope.
My pretty designer paper is K&Company--I love this Valentine pack collection.
The scroll cuts are the accent/frame feature on page 55 of Cricut Storybook cartridge. I cut the accent/frame and also the blackout feature at 3 1/2 inches. The word Love and shadow are cut at 1 1/2 inches page 34 from Sweethearts cartridge. Lots of Martha Stewart inking!

On the inside of the card, I used Wild Card cartridge. The cut of hearts is the icon feature cut at 7 inches and Hugs & Kisses is the Phrase feature cut at 8 inches. Both cuts are on page 67. White paper is a metallic shimmer from Recollections Winter.
Now I have one Valentine card! I think it is pretty! Let me know what you think!
Hope you enjoy!


  1. Both these cards are great! I love the paper you used.

  2. All those flourishes are wonderful!

    Great job,

  3. Glenda, this card is beautiful. Those cuts are beautiful together. And that paper is gorgeous.

  4. Glenda,

    Your card could not be any prettier!!! :)
    You sound like me: I was surprised to find red and green solids to be on clearance after Christmas. The red is perfect for Valentines and the green works great for St. Patrick's Day!

    Thanks for sharing!
