Valentine’s Day!

Today I want to share with you my design project for Creative Critterz Imaginations blog.

My second favorite craft holiday is Valentine’s Day. Speaking of favorites, BasicGrey is one of my all time favorite paper companies. Last year, I purchased a BasicGrey Valentine’s card kit and it inspired me to make this quick and easy card using the Imagine.



The background card measures 5 x 5 inches and is cut using BasicGrey paper from my stash. You could easily use the Imagine to create matching paper. Next, I used the George cartridge to cut a 4.7 inch square and flood filled with paper from Lori’s Garden (page43). Did I mention how much I love this cart? I then cut a 3.3 inch circle and flood filled with paper located on page 40.
Next, I cut a 3.5 inch circle and flood filled with a matching color from page 46.

I cut two skinny hearts one at 2.5 and one at 2.8 inches from the George cartridge and flood filled using the paper on page 43 and a matching color on page 46. I manually trimmed the hearts to fit.

Finally I added stickers, chip board and two rhinestones from my stash and was done. You could also make the hearts using the George or another cartridge. I love how bright this card looks and how easy it was to make.

Recipe:
George Cricut Cartridge
Lori’s Garden Imagine cartridge
BasicGrey card stock for the card
Kaiser Rhinestones
Assorted stickers and chip board from my stash

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
