Month: February 2013

Asterisk Say I love you everyday!

We are a few days away from wrapping up the month of February.  Of course Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you stop telling the people you care about how much you love them.  True love is not restricted to a day on the calendar or only shown a certain time of the year.  With each and every new day, we should show our love to the people in our lives.

Today, we will look at a card I made with the Close to My Heart My Acrylix Stamp Set (S1301) for my honey for Valentine’s Day.  This stamp set can be used anytime you want to express your love to someone.

Valentine's Day card

This 6″ x 6″ card features lots of details, but is easy to make.  The “With all my heart” portion was heat embossed on cranberry cardstock. The “Happy Valentine’s Day” was stamped on a shape cut from the Close to My Heart Artise Cricut Cartridge. The background paper was created by using the flower stamp from the “Flirty Scrapbooking Workshop Season & Nature” set (C1515).

I recently did a workshop with a wonderful group of ladies using these same elements and I was amazed at how each card came out different with each ladies’ creativity.
