Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 96 Valentiney Cards

This week"s challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is to make a 3x3 Valentine Card.  This is a great challenge for me because I make so many little Valentine cards being a teacher.  I make them not only for my students, but for past students as well.  I also like to give them to me fellow kindergarten teachers.  There are 10 kindergarten classes at my school.  And I also like to give Valentines to the art, music, media, computer, and PE teachers.  I am always looking for new ideas.

Here is my little card for the challenge.  I think it is just so sweet!

I used Martha Stewart paper for my card.  The cut is from the Cricut SOPHIE cartridge.  This is just one of my very favorite cartridges.  I used foam tape to attach it to the card.  I just wanted it to have dimension, especially with the card being so small.  I added pink and white twine to the card. There is a pink heart gen at the top of the bird swing.  And I added a few little pale pink gems to the little love birds to create the wings.  I finished the card with a sentiment from the K Andrew Designs  It's Valentines stamp set.

Please go to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and  check out all of the fantabulous cards created by our DT members.    And then link up your fabulous 3x3 Valentine's Card.  I am so glad you dropped by for a visit.  I hope you come back real soon.
