by Richelle Naegle As I've stated in the past, I love this new Valentine's Day Cricut cartridge, and have found so many fun projects that I want to make with this cartridge. Naturally, I decided to make another Valentines Day card! I absolutely love how this card turned out. About halfway through I was skeptical that I'd like the final product, but I think it turned out great. The overall size of this first card is 6" x 6" and the winged heart was cut out at 4.5" and the "I (heart) U" at .90". For each of the images I used just two layers, so it went together fairly quickly as it often does when crafting with Cricut products. The top half of the card was embossed with Cuttlebug supplies, namely the Love is in the Air embossing set. This set has 6 great embossing folders to choose from, and they are all great for Valentine's Day. If you want a good brand for material, you can find some great Simple Stories cardstock here. That's it! This card was pretty simple to put together. If I keep going with this cartridge, I will have all my Valentine's Day cards done before February even get's here. That's great though, right? At least I won't be worrying about those last minute this February 14th. Continue reading
