Valentine Tree


I had the idea for this card rolling around in my head for two days now but since I've been back at work this week, I haven't had the time to be creative til tonight. It turned out just as I pictured it in my head. So nice when that happens.
For this card I used my Cricut and Graphically Speaking cart for the tree and sentiment, George cart for the heart, and Mini Monogram cart for the scalloped square. I also blew the dust off of one of my all time favorite Stampin Up background stamps, By Definition(retired) and got it inky.
Those cute little hearts were a find at Target and they're from Colorbok.
I thought I was finished with it then and there but it just needed something more. I did some tracing around the outside of the tree and letters with my black fine tipped marker to make them pop. It really made a big difference in the final outcome of this card.
The back panel is embossed using my hearts embossing folder and cuttlebug.
I'm gonna call it a night. Now that I've got this card out of my head and onto paper, I'm gonna go see what my little mind can dream up for tomorrows card making. Have a great day and thanks for stopping in to see me. TTFN
Hugs, Becky
