Valentine's Day Cards

I wanted to share pictures of the Valentine's Day cards I made for my son's daycare class.  It is very simple, as I figured all that the 3 and 4 year old kids would notice is the candy on the front!

I used my Cricut Anniversary Edition E2 to make these.  The bee is from the Create A Critter cartridge.  I added silver Stickles to the antennae and used chalk to give the bee his rosy cheeks.  The yellow paper has a texture to it that is not really noticeable in the picture.  The wings are made from glitter paper.  The textured paper and the glitter paper are from DCWV.

Here is the inside of the card:

The heart is from the Cake Basics cartridge and the letters are from the Pooh Font cartridge.  The heart is made with the textured paper also.  The "Bee Mine" is cut out of the heart to let the red show through.  I'm glad I figured out that would be easier than gluing the letters to the heart!  After I glued down the first heart however, I realized the inside of the "B" would be lost.  So to fix that, I lifted my "B" from my cutting mat with the inside pieces still in place.  I added glue to the back of the inner pieces and laid the entire "B" back into its cutout in the heart.  Then I removed the "B".  The inner pieces stayed in place and defined the cutout "B".  I used a rubber stamp I had in my stash for the sentiment.

I hope you had a great Valentine's Day.  I enjoyed a delivery of chocolate-dipped fruit from Edible Arrangements.  Boy were they good!

Thank you for visiting!  See you again soon!
