Pretty Valentines

Happy Valentines Day!  I hope your week has started off well.  I thought I would celebrate Valentines Day with you by sharing a few more cards that are full of hearts and sweet sentiments.

Love this first card for its bold colors and combination of a graphic elements. The flourishes are part of the same die so it's a quick card to put together.IO-Love-BkgrdLove Flourish – Impression Obsession dies Ornate Flourish, Love Word, Rectangle Frames 6 in 1 and All-in-One Rectangle Frames; IO background stamp I Love You; design inspired by Jenny Gropp

For this next card I combined a number of stamps, dies and pretty papers in a shabby chic style.  I die cut the Paper Smooches pocket then added stitching with a Paper Smooches Stitched die.

The next two cards are quick and easy but cute for sending greetings any time of the year.  The black and white diagonal border is decorative paper.Smooches

The IO Heart Flourish die is always a popular one because it is so pretty and delicate.  Better yet, it fills the whole card front so I just had to add a little sentiment and the card is done!  I die cut the flourish from red glitter cardstock then inlaid it on ivory metallic paper.  Very pretty!
