Less than two weeks until Galentine's and Valentine's Day! When you love making cards, it's easy to make them for those you love.
I tend towards non-traditional colors because I'm contrary like that. This year, I went with a color palette of Black and White, Cream and Grey and Pink. I backed into my palette when I found some great stickers at Dollar Tree last month.
With these COVID variants, we're going out even less than before which wasn't that much to start and it will be another cozy home celebration for us.
- Cardstock (Recollections 110lb Michaels)
- Scrapbook Paper (American Crafts and Pink Paislee)
- Focal Sticker (Dollar Tree)
- Paper Trimmer
I found this sheet of wood stickers at Dollar Tree. I love the natural hearts and although I'm not much of a pink person, I really wanted to use those too because I knew I had the perfect papers in my stash!
I did some on cream cardstock with coordinating grey and cream papers. I had scraps from cutting the cards to size (5x7) so I ran them through a damask embossing folder that matched the pattern of the paper. Makers hate waste!. I kept these simple because the papers were so pretty so just adhered the natural heart to a white scrap, matted with a grey scrap and done!
I'm physically unable to avoid black and white. It's true! My doctor confirms. OK no, but...it's my thing. So for this one, I used a striped silver on silver paper, American Crafts XOXO paper, the pink hearts and done!
For the pink cards, white cardstock, coordinating papers by Pink Paislee, more natural hearts and done!
Those of you who know you're getting one will just have to see which one you get! 😛
