Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  I had a great V-Day at school with my students.  It’s always so much fun to watch them hand out their Valentines, then sit back and read them all – they get so excited, I love it!  We also made a cute little “Love Bug” card, but I forgot to take a picture of some of them before I sent them home!  I will take a picture of my sample and post it here later this week.  Here is a sample of the Valentines I made for my family:

Valentine's Day 2011 2

I created this Valentine using the letterpress plate from Stampin’ Up – I can’t remember the exact name of it.  I coated it with Versamark before running it through my cuttlebug with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  The dark brown is Early Espresso.  The red hearts were cut out with a cuttlebug die cut, and I sponged around the edges with Early Espresso ink, then embossed them with my favourite embossing powder – Ultra Thick Embossing powder (UTE).  I glued them to a piece cut out with a nestabilities die, which I punched with SU’s slot punch and ran the ribbon through.  It was a super simple card to make, but I really love it’s simplicity.

I wish you all a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  Thanks for stopping by!
