VALENTINE CARDS 1-3


I am just getting carried away with Valentine's Day cards this year!!! Actually, I finished them a week or two ago, but didn't get a chance to upload them until today.


Since I retired, almost three years ago, I have not bought one single card....woo-HOO! Every year in February I used to spend at least $30 on cards for friends and family. Now that I have time to do my own V-Day cards, I spend very little and this year, it was about $6!!!

Products used were mostly from my stash, and all I had to purchase was the mini tablet (6"X6") by My Mind's Eye Lost, Union Square Collection. I used a set of sealing wax and clear stamps by Bo Bunny, Prima and Tattered Angels. Each card was made by first creating a tag with a popped-up and fussy-cut stamp. In addition, I popped up the tag.....so that's three distinct layers. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, EVERYONE!
