Valentine Swap Cards 2013

Today I want to share a new card I made for my Card Swap Group.  This time we have 4 theme's to make 6 of each.  Valentine's Day which is the group I just finished.  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I love all three of these so it is so hard for me to pick one style for each category lol.

Here are some of the items I used on this card.  I used an ink Brayer and inked the Valentine Folder from Sizzix Valentine set before running it through my cuttlebug for the bottom of the card.  

I used a pink paper with a white core on the Sizzix heart embossing folder from Love Set and sanded the top raised layer and added two pink gems on the XX.  

The top portion is all one piece of scrap-booking paper, I hand cut along scallop.  

I used Paper Artist's Circles & Scallops dies for the top two circles.  The inner circle sentiment I created with my computer in Craft Artist and printed out then cut with my 1 7/8 circle die to fit on top of the 2 1/4 scallop circle.  

I also added a couple of pink flower beads filled with Pink Polymark dimensional Fabric paint.
For the inside I created the sentiment on my computer in craft Artist, I printed 4 at a time to fit the inside of each 5 1/2" tall X 4 1/4" wide cards.

 Here are all Six cards for my swap, Yay!!! 1st category complete :)

If you look on my page, My embossing folders and cutting dies here:  http://evasscrapsncards.blogspot.com/p/my-cuttlebug-folders.html  You will find which set each of these come from with a photo of each set.
