Happy Monday All! I can’t believe it is almost Valentine’s Day! Today over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog we are kicking off this week’s challenge with making Valentines! You will want to get in on this so be sure to pop on over and check out all the sweet inspiration from the design team and link up a Valentine using at least one Cricut cut!
Here is what I cooked up for this week’s inspiration
This card was super quick and easy to make! The card was a cut from Samantha Walker Designs found over at the Silhouette store! I resized this card to be around 5 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide. I found this card fits nicely in one of the extra envelopes that I had left over from my Costco Christmas cards. I decided to raid my scrap stash to make this card and thankfully I had enough of everything! I embossed the black card stock with the Christmas Trio Cuttlebug folder set. I inked the boarder with Stampin Up Classic black.
For the candy dispenser I cut just one layer at 3 inches and modified it to fit an adhesive treat heart I found through Stampin’ Up. I embossed the the dispenser with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Using CANDi embellishments, I glued two of the CANDi pieces together to make them 3-D and added them into the heart and constructed the candy dispenser onto the black card stock. I love how this really looks like candy in a candy dispenser!
I added baker’s twine from the Twinery, stamped the sentiment from My Pink Stamper’s Happiest Moments stamp set and added more cute little CANDi to the heart!
On the inside of the card I added some white card stock that was inked with Close to My Heart Holiday Red. I added washi tape from Queen and Co’s Valentine line and yes, MORE CANDi!
Now be sure you head over to FCCB and join in on the fun this week!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “who needs Hallmark when you can make it yourself” pie with me!
