Valentine Cards



I decided to make a few Valentine cards, I hope to put them in the local florist of she likes them. I made them fairly simple to keep the price down, and just used Robo cut words, along with die cut hearts that I embossed - or didn't whichever took my fancy. I like to try and sell some cards - that way it pays towards all of the 'stash' that I feel compelled to buy, but as you will all know it never actually 'earns' money just a small contribution towards costs! BUT at least it means I can make a few more which I like to do, so I hope she likes them.



My cards are mainly simple and 'less is more', I don't see many like this around these days...so thought I would share! As you can see I made them all similar - I just had a box of bits in front of me...and it was quicker that way.

So what style do you like to make?

The Robo lettering is available on the web site - and I can provide a complete sheet of the words if you would like - let me know I will pop them on the web site too. I did them all in white and inked them in different colours.






Don't forget to pop by the forum and have a natter - we are a friendly bunch and always happy to welcome new 'friends'.

There is a local free magazine called Craft Matters - if you see it pick up a copy - it has loads of information on local shops and classes. I had a piece published in there last time and may have another editorial in there this time.

These are very classy cards, Carolyn - effective use of the robo cuts. I used to do quite a few cards that were similar to these, but nowadays I tend to use more and more patterned papers - I think I might try doing a few more 'white space' ones again for a change - you have inspired me x
