Valentine's Day Cards

Happy Valentine's Day bloggers!!! It's Tanisha here with a load of Valentine's Day cards that I created using Cheery Lynn Designs dies. I just love how versatile the dies are; they can be used straightforward or changed up to create an out of the box design.

I made this set of mini cards to go along with some goodies for my niece and nephews using XL Nested Scalloped Circles and Little Stackers Coved Rectangle. As you can see here, I used the scalloped circle as and embellishment on one of the cards and as the base of the other.

I created this next card for my sister's Valentine. Since the card is for a guy, I wanted to make it as masculine as possible. I achieved this look by adding a lot of texture. I cut the By The Sea Frame from patterned paper and chipboard and then used the Cement embossing plate from the grunge series to emboss it.

The frame actually cuts several pieces at a time, I just wanted the outer shape and the inner circle to create the faux scalloped border, so I put scotch tape around the parts that I didn't want cut out.

Here you can see the cement texture on the frame

I remember when the Heart to Heart Doily arrived at my house. I opened the package, but instead of seeing a heart, my mind's eye saw half of a butterfly wing and from that point, I couldn't wait to create a pretty butterfly with it. See I told you the dies are versatile! I used the Dots/Lines embossing plate to add some texture to the card base.


Here's a close up of the wing (err heart).
