Valentine's Cards - for Cancer

I have a friend, Liz, who was hosting a Valentine Day Card drive to send to kids who suffer from Cancer. She wanted to be able to bring a smile to their cute faces. She asked each of us to do 2 cards, and here are mine.

From Flamingo Scraps: Fancy Pants Designs: It's The Little Things - Headed South; Prima: Fairy Tale roses white, and mini roses - white. Other: Greeting Farm Flutter Anya, Copic Markers, Studio G: Hug Coupon, Bling, Kraft Cardstock, Making Memories: Lace; Tim Holtz: Ticket Die, and Ticket Stamp from 100 Stamp Collection.


I wanted my cards to be themed around love but not the same traditional Valentine’s Day icons of Red and Pink. So I chose Fancy Pants “It’s the Little Things – Headed South” paper. It has these cute I love you stamps and post marks everywhere. There are still a few sheets of it left in the store if you like to use it on your Valentine's Day projects.



I designed the cards like an easle card so that they could be viewed from a dresser or table top. I stitched around the edges for interest and used my Greeting Farm Flutter Anya stamp as the focal point. I love that I can change the look of the image by simply coloring her a different color. Since these cards will be hand delivered, I used the Prima FairyTale Roses and Mini Roses as the easle prop.
