Christmas is over and now time to start cranking out some Valentines cards lol! Here is my first Valentines card that I've done! For the card base I used my Grand Calibur and one of the Grand dies Label #1. I also used the die to do my background layering. I embossed the white cardstock with my cuttlebug and the script embossing folder (not sure if that is the correct name for the folder I'm horrible at remembering their names lol!!) For Christmas I got the Cricut lite cartridge Celebrate with Flourish and just had to try it out so that's where the birds came from! I just love this cartridge!! It has something for all the holidays! It was one of those impulse wants and so glad I added it to my list for Santa!! I used my new I-Rock tool and crystal gems for the eyes. I used the Grand Calibur and the Lacy Circle die for the main focal to put my sentiments on. The ticket and sentiment is a studio G stamp and the stamp around is out of Cindy's Spellbinder's Matching stamp sets called Lacey Circles. Cindy has alot of these products I used on my card on sale right now (she also has some really good prices on other items to!) If you've got any leftover Christmas money burning a whole in your pocket head over to StampingScrapping.com I'm sure you can put the flame out pretty quick!! She has excellent customer service and super, super fast shipping. I highly recommend her and if you do place a order let her know I sent you!! I'll be back later on with my Lindsay's Stamp Stuff project and you don't want to miss that she has came out with the cutest Valentine svgs and if you don't have SCAL no problem she also has it in clipart!!
