I am not much on Valentine's Day...to me it is just another day. I don't decorate for it, but my son's birthday is a few days before, so there is always a party in the vicinity of Valentine's Day.
I wanted to make a few special cards for Valentine's so of course I thought of wool first!
As you can see the first step was to get my Diet Coke opened.
I cut out a simple heart shape from a piece of felted wool that happened to be pink striped. Appropriate, don't you think?
I sewed each heart onto a colored print card stock with transparent thread.
Then i used some high powered spray adhesive to adhere the card stock onto the actual card I was using. See the 2 liter bottle of Diet Coke in the background? We were snowed in and I wanted to make sure that I had plenty in case I couldn't get out for weeks.
And then I used these alphabet stamps (which I scored at Salvation Army for $1 for the set) to stamp Be Mine inside.
I just used black ink, but red or pink would look great too!
I love the font!
I love the way it turned out here on the inside of the cards.
And here is the final result...
I think they turned out really nice!
I've been meaning to bust out my new stamps! Love your valentines!
Those are super adorable, and I'm really jealous about the stamps. Lucky...
So cute! Thanks for linking up!
These are really adorable! A lot of "bang" for a little work! I may have to make some of these.
That's an amazing find, too...a Stampin' Up! Alphabet set for $1!!!
These are darling. I'd love to receive a homemade card like this. And those alphabets stamps DO have the greatest font. So fun!
Cute! Thanks for linking up to Mad Skills Monday!
