Cricut Valentine’s Sweets Lovers Silhouette Valentine’s Day Card

Hey everyone,

For Christmas 2016 (1 year ago) I received a Cricut Explorer Air 2, and it seems as though I have not had enough use of it since I got it. But as one of my New Year’s resolutions, I am going to learn and create more with my Cricut Explorer Air 2.

Using a Circuit cartridge called Valentine’s Sweets, I made this Valentine’s Day inspired card using one of the images. The original image is a two layer cut with the lovers nested in a heart outline.
I decided to cut the lovers silhouette in black and add a red heart shaped doily to the background. The focal image complements the patterned piece of paper very well and I love the simplicity of this card. I chose not to add a sentiment because I think that it would get lost in the card and when I am ready to send this card out I can pick a perfect sentiment for the inside.

My Favorite Things Purr-fect Friends ~ Zig Clean Color ~ Valentines Day Card

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and was able to enjoy spending the time with family and friends. I am enjoying my time off and spending it with family. I was able to sneak away into my craft cave and create a card inspired by current My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

My Favorite Things Pur-fect Friends stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and ink smooshing background handmade Valentine card.

To create the background, I used a piece of watercolor paper and #82 Purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to ink smoosh onto the paper. I cut the panel down to 4 by 5.25 using MFT’s Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die.
The images were stamped onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using VersaFine ink in Onyx Black and colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Color combinations I used

082 Purple
061 Light Brown
042 Turquoise Green

Originally the bird cage was stamped onto a piece of white paper, however, after cutting it out, I did not like the look. So onto plan B, I pulled out heat resistant acetate and stamped the bird cage image on it.

To put this card together, I used a piece of cream colored cardstock as the base of card, added the watercolor panel and adhered all of my pieces either using Ranger multi medium matte or foam adhesive for some dimension.

This is my entry card for the My Favorite Things’ Color Challenge # 83.

As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
