I’m back to working on Valentine’s cards and still keeping with my neutral chocolate inspired theme. This batch, I used my Cricut Expression, specifically the "Lovestruck” cart.
We have a regional chain of stores called Paper Zone
and they are my go to place for all of my cardstock and envelopes, but they carry a great line of scrapbooking supplies, specialty papers etc. I fell in love with Making Memories Paper Reverie
line because it was exactly my color scheme. Look at this fun tape:
I also found these strips of adhesive pearls at Michaels:
And this reversible paper from the Reverie collection mentioned above:
I cut out two different hearts using my Cricut. With the Lovestruck cart you can cut a detailed heart plus a solid one to put behind it . Here’s one of the cards:
I cut the detailed heart from cream C’Oredinations paper and the solid heart from a chocolate brown paper. I used the brown polka dotted tape on the left side along with a strip of the brown pearls and finished with a button and adhesive rhinestone in the middle.
For another card, I did the reverse color combo on the hearts…brown detail with cream backing:
Embellished with the polka dot tape, brown buttons, pearls, and a strip of combo rhinestone and pearls. I need some chocolate!

Terrific Valentine cards, love the colours you've chosen, yummy. Have a great weekend. Annette x
Super sweet, Carol! I love the color scheme. And that heart is seriously fabulous!
These cards are making me crave chocolate. I love those self adhesive pearls, I use them all the time.
Oh these are so nice ... love the combination of the pearls with the buttons and rhinestones! Will need to check out the handmade Valentine party!
Awesome, awesome cards! Back in the days of beginning scrapbooking, who would have thought bling on an adhesive strip would give one such a thrill...lol... And I have to admit, this almost makes me want a Cricut. (gasp)
So pretty. I am a huge fan of brown!
Love these cards...don't tell me they're SCRATCH & SNIFF ?????
So, so pretty! Love the pearls, ooh, want some! And I esp. love the faint faint pink with the chocolate.
I think you are right...the answer to everything is chocolate or if not, then, more chocolate!
very sweet valentine. I love all of the browns. I may need to go pick up that cartridge...
