Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! I know this is a very late post and most of you are probably already enjoying your day or starting the new day. I wanted to share a couple Valentine's Day cards I made. The first two I chose to use Sweetheart Marci from La La Land Crafts. Isn't she sweet and perfect for any Valentine's day card or project? In the first card I went with a pink palette, with a touch of white and orange. I just love the heart flags she's displaying because you can write any 5 letter word inside. I chose to write "HAPPY" then used some hearts, which were left over punches from the MS border punch, to spell out "Valentine's" and then wrote in "Day!" with a white opaque marker. Tried to make the Valentine's hearts into a flower bouquet so I drew in stems behind the pink bow. I cased one of the make & take cards from CHA because I loved the simple layout.
For the second card I used Sweetheart Marci again and chose a mostly red and white palette. I used a Copic marker to draw in the hearts as well as the fake stitches within the circle behind Marci. I did use the same border punch and used the leftover hearts to make a fun heart image with flourish on the other side. Inside the heart sign I wrote "Hello".
I also used a lot of my white gel pen. I sometimes forget that I have one. Decided that I needed to use it prominently this time around. hahaha.. These were both fun cards to make and I had a lot of fun coloring up Marci with first orange hair and then giving her a brown do. :)
Mahalo for stopping by and where ever you are.. Happy Valentine's Day!!!
