Andrea says: Valentine's Day, in our house, is all about the handmade. These cards are handmade from the hand cut shaped card to the embellishments that top them. To create a shaped card, begin with a folded piece of cardstock. Draw or begin cutting the shape you want to create, making sure that you leave part of the folded edge intact. Cut paper/cardstock for the front of the card and stamp, embellish and build your card in your creative way.
Here is a second card that is sure to bring cheer to anyone!
Supplies: Persnickety (Huffy - paper, Picky - paper, Snooty - paper, ABC cardstock stickers), Victoria Park (Raspberry - paper, bag of bits), Christmas Cheer (Figgy Pudding - paper), Double Dutch (Marmalade - paper)
I decided to make two very different cards that incorporate the same major design elements, the word "today", index journal cards and hearts. It is cool to see how dramatically the same ideas look when you dress them differently.
First, I made this monochromatic card using mostly pinks.
This card is the polar opposite of soft with its bright oranges and reds. I again incorporated a piece of an index journal card, this time placing it along the top. I like the unique scallop it give at the bottom of it. I then layered several stickers and chipboard pieces to convey my sentiments.
Grab your Lily Bee goodies and start creating. Handmade cards are sure to bring joy to others!
