Day 12 - Valentines

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing another Valentine card. Now this is my type of Valentines--pinks and chocolates!! Images are cut using the Cricut Explore and Design Space. The card is white cardstock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". The pretty chocolate candy patterned paper is from K&Company Cupid Speciality paper pad. I love K&Company double-sided paper. All the Valentine paper that I have been using is some that I have had for a few years and I have plenty more Valentine paper!

Cricut Cartridges:
Valentine's Sweets digital set - Box of chocolates cut 3.25"h.This is one of those images that I just had to have--knew it would work good with the paper. Have you ever bought something just to use on one certain paper!!
Elegant Edges - White and pink mats. Love the cut out hearts on this image. Mat was cut 4"h.
Doodlecharms - Heart charm. This image is found on page 85 of handbook. I cut it at 1.75"h.

I am still trying to learn new things about the Explore. For the heart charm, I used the word box, Cricut Alphabet and Cricut wine pen to write the word Love on the white heart. I think it turned out good!

To attach the heart charm, I attached memory thread to the heart, formed a heart with the thread and wrapped it around the pink gemstone. EK corner punch was used for the corner papers.

Inside of card.
Cricut Valentine's Sweets was used for Happy Valentine's Day seen inside the card. Can you see that it is four layers to this image? The chocolate candy on the white mat was part of the Valentine's Sweet box of chocolate.

I really like the way this card turned out! Hope you enjoy!
