A Bunch of Cards :)

Good morning! Today I am posting a few cards from my weekend cardmaking project. I line with telling my loved ones how much I care, I made a bunch of cards to send out...eight to be exact. :) This post has 4 of the cards, which I am sending out today. Tomorrow and Thursday I will post the others, so stay tuned! :)

This first card was inspired by an idea I had previously thought of...the original idea was to stack gifts, but with the recent Valentine's Day holiday, I thought it more fitting to stack the hearts. :)

That idea got me thinking of how else I could use my heart cut outs...and this is what I came up with. I thought of tying the hearts with twine, but wanted the focus on the "I love you" message, so I stuck with clean and simple.

This picture shows two more cards of similar design. I had fun with these! The hearts are stamps from a $1 stamp set from JoAnn Fabrics which is Valentine's Day themed. I stamped them on several scrap papers and cut them all out. Each of the "I <3 U" parts are highlighted with glossy accents to make them stand out. It is hard to see in the photos-Sorry! They look much cooler in real life! ;)

Hope you enjoyed! See you back tomorrow for more surprises! :)

Thanks, Kathy! I appreciate your kind words. :) It is hard to see, but there is glossy accents over the "I <3 U" to highlight them. Forgot to put that in my post, too. Oops! :) Have a great day!
