This is the last of the Valentine cards. This is a slimline card that will fit in a no.10 envelope. I folded the card base, added some layers and then finished it off with some things I found in Cricut design space.

I guess I'm kind of stuck on making Valentine cards at the moment. I made a simple 4.25" x 5.5" card using plain white cardstock. I added a craft paper with red hearts. Then I found a design I liked on Cricut's design space and I made it a print and cut. I put half of the design on the front of the card.

So today I have the card that I redid. As I said yesterday, this time I skipped the embossing. I found a snoopy image on Clipart-library.com and used that for this card. I uploaded the image to Cricut design space and then did a print and cut. I did the same with the hello Valentine. Like I also said yesterday, I had some operator errors when doing the print and cut. I neglected to attach some items so they didn't cut in the correct spot on my cardstock. That meant that I had something cut through the hello Valentine. I didn't want to throw it away so I glued all the pieces together onto the card. You can tell if you look real close but it looks good enough.

I had a nice day off yesterday. Aside from doing laundry, I spent most of the day playing. I would say that I had more failures than successes but I had fun and that's what counts.
I had seen a technique that I wanted to try. You use plastic wrap and you can fuse either napkins or tissue paper to regular cardstock and envelopes. I did the envelope first and it turned out pretty well. The card was good but I used a check tissue paper and it was crooked. Then I thought I would try and emboss to give it some texture. It ended up warping the paper.
