Valentine's Day is just around the corner and when it comes to
card making, this is my FAVORITE holiday!
I am a sucker for anything that is pink and involves a good dose
of sparkle, hearts and glitter!
One of the companies that I design cards for is
and recently they added the cutest files to their shop!
It is a collection of 10 of the cutest Valentine themed dragons and
one is cuter than the next!
You can view all of them in the shop right now here.
I have had the delightful opportunity to design a couple of cards
with them and I used these 2 files:
The first card I made is with the Heart Balloons Dragon and here it is:
I am smitten with this card and I just love how it came out.
I started with white card stock and I die cut a panel with
one of my favorite dies from Kat Scrappiness called the
Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies. I used the largest die from the pack
because it's the perfect size to fill the front panel of an A2 sized card.
The next step was to die cut some card stock with the cloud die
from Lawn Fawn to make a template that I could use to sponge
some clouds on to my card front.
I used Broken China distress ink and proceeded to sponge it around
the cloud template to form clouds all the way down the panel.
I love the soft look you can get with varying amounts of
pressure applied to the ink tool.
Once I got the clouds the way I wanted I stamped the sentiment from
an Avery Elle stamp set called Handwritten notes and
I added a cute little heart from the Kat Scrappiness stamp
set called Let's Get Caffeinated.
To finish the card off I used some Pretty Pink Jewels
from Kat Scrappiness.
Once all that was complete I added the cute little Dragon from KaDoodle Bug
on some foam tape and the card was done.
Here is a picture with the supplies used.
The second card I made uses the Love Letters Dragon file.
It is a shaker card and it is one of my favorite type of cards to make!
For this card I started with the Kat Scrappiness
It's the perfect die for making shaker cards because it has windows for
shaker bits and you can easily add foam tape to the back of it.
window and I used vellum instead of acetate for a softer look.
The back panel on the card is some adorable Doodlebug paper
with a Valentines theme.
To decorate the front of the card along with the cute dragon
I die cut the words from the I Love You Shadow dies from
Kat Scrappiness out of pink glitter paper.
Here is a close up of the card so you can see the details.
These 2 cards were so much fun to make and I hope you'll check out
