More and more love

Hi Crafty Pals,

Valentine’s has now passed and as usual with any number of cards to do I struggled to get finished!

My son needed 23 for the children in his class and a different type for his teacher so I made them the weekend before, but as I used the retired Poppy Parade Card Stock I haven’t photographed them.

His teachers card gave me a chance to crack open my new ribbon and use the beautiful flower from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set (rapidly becoming my favourite especially the oval background).

Teacher Valentine Card

This card was so simple to make, but the ribbon brings it alive as it has such a nice sheen.

My son helped punch out ovals for his class cards and crank the Big Shot for most of what we needed. When everything was finished he was very pleased with all of his cards, but not so keen to have to write them all. I’m sure he’d love a stamp with his name on so he could just do that instead.

While my lovey-dovey supplies were out I made another card for one of my boys.

The Pool Party heart (on the right hand side) is cut from the More Amore Designer Series Paper and is actually hiding a stamp error, I over inked and ended up catching the centre of the heart (grrr), but I think it looks OK and he’ll never know.
