Valentines kinda snuck up on me this year. Monday night (Feb 13) at 9:30pm, my little girl said,
"Mom, I need valentines for my class."
Holy Cow! I thought.... how did I completely let this slip through my hands.
A little (and I do mean small and dim) light bulb went off in my head. I had made some small valentines for a craft fair that I did in January. Not all of the sets sold, so I went hunting through my stash. Sure enough, I was in luck! I had two packs left of 24 each. It is a good thing I had two, because my daughters class has 38 people. The packs were not the same Valentines Cards, but that also worked in my favor. One was more girl-y, the other was more boy-ee. I happened to have a bag of individually wrapped life-savers. So that is what was taped on the back of each valentine.
Any whooo. Here they are.
I inked the edges, and stamped the images in the middle.
The crowns have a dot of glitter glue to give some bling.
The frog is inked with kalida-color inks to give it some vibrancy. The little heart has some teal glitter glue in the middle. A little sparkle never hurt anyone.
I liked the simplicity of the cards, and that they still had color.
