I made these Valentines for three out of four grandchildren this year. I will admit I did not make one for Olivia. It is not because I don’t love her but she is only 8 months old and I think she would just eat it. Everything goes in her mouth. Then I would feel bad because she ate something that might not be so good for her. Plus she might get Highland Heather Ink on her face and her parents probably wouldn’t like that. I figure a grand has to be at least 2 before they get cards from me. Until then, they just get lots of hugs and kisses.
To start with, I used the Note Cards & Envelopes that are in the 2020 Annual Catalog. The cards are 3 1/2″ x 5 and you get 20 cards and 20 envelopes in the pack. They come in Whisper White (I used this one for the Toucan card) or Very Vanilla (which I used for the elephant cards).
The top Valentine is for Nolan. I used the stamp set called Bonanza Buddies and the matching dies called Bonanza Dies. They are part of the Birthday Bonanza Suite that are in the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog and you can save 10% if you purchase them in a Bundle. The Suite also includes a ribbon, tiny little pompoms and gusseted cellophane bags. This Suite is perfect for birthday parties and valentines!
To make Nolan’s card I first cut the tag out in Mango Melody cardstock using one of the dies from the Bonanza Dies. I cut the Toucan out of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper. I love that the dies match some of the designs in this DSP. The heart balloons are from a retired punch (sorry about that) and the sentiment is from the stamp set called Meant To Be. It is in the Annual Catalog.
The next card was the one I made for Madelyn and Emy. I used the Little Elephant stamp set and the Elephant Builder Punch. I stamped the larger elephant in Highland Heather ink and the smaller one in Blushing Bride. Both granddaughters love sparkly things so I used some Wink of Stella on the heart and the elephants. Every girl needs a little sparkle in their lives
