Fantabulous Cricut - Ch. 96 3" x 3" Valentiney Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! It is Monday again and that means it is time for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut. This week our challenge is all about 3" x 3" Valentiney cards. Yes, that means a tiney card. I cut my card from red cardstock at 3" x 6" and when folded in half, it measures 3" x 3". This is the first time that I have made such a small card, but I am pleased with the look.
We are happy to have Emma at My Creative Time as our sponsor this week. She has so generously let some of the designers use some of her stamps for today's projects. Thank you Emma for your kindness and the opportunity! My stamp set is Classmate Valentines. I chose the cute Happy Valentine's Day Teacher stamp and the apple stamp to go with it.
Cricut cartridges:
Cricut Classroon Basics - The white scallop circle was cut at 1/2" and the red scallop circle was cut at 1.681"w x 1.653"h.  Ink was Color Box Cranberry.
Create A Critter - Page 25 - Apple cut at 2" height. It is pop dotted on the card.
Heart Blocks folder was used on the white mat. Just wanted to add a bit more Valentiney look!
Other supplies include Paper Studio Ribbon Trends for the gingham ribbon.

On the inside of the card, I used the To, From, and Apple from the stamp set. I left room for my youngest grandson who is in the first grade to print the names.

Be sure to visit FCCB to see all the pretty projects by the design team. We appreciate your comments and visits to our blogs! Now it is your turn to play along with us. Remember to follow the theme - make a 3" x 3" Valentine card and as always you must include a Cricut cut. We look forward to seeing your projects. You have until midnight Sunday Feb. 5th to enter your card.
