Midweek Throwdown: Valentine’s DayPosted by AllisonGinTX on Dec 4, 2013 in Midweek Throwdown Challenge, Stars and Stamps | 13 comments
Your white on white cards were simply elegant! I saw holiday cards (hopefully for personal use since we are past the Christmas deadlines), love cards (way to get a jump on the Valentine’s Day deadline), and any occasion cards that were all stunningly beautiful. You may still send general-themed winter cards until January 10, but we’re really ready to move on to Valentine’s Day and love-themed cards that can be used year-round!
With that in mind, we thought we’d inspire you to begin making VALENTINE’S CARDS. I know how hard it is to think about a holiday that seems so far away when we haven’t even celebrated Christmas yet and we just had Thanksgiving, but that’s the way we roll at Operation Write Home. Our cards have to make it overseas and back again in time for each and every holiday! So, pull out your hearts, Valentine’s sentiments and red and pink papers and get busy!!
Our sample card maker this week is Cindy M. who blogs at Cindy’s Card Co. Here’s a little about Cindy’s Valentine’s Day card in her own words:
“I saw a card similar to this one and did my own little version of it with the supplies that I had. The little white funky heart in the center of the one heart (which is a punch) is a little plastic heart. The bottom strip is actually a piece of ribbon that I’ve had for a few years.”
That’s a great reminder that if you like a card you see, you can use the supplies you have on hand to re-create it. It doesn’t have to be an exact replica to be a great card! SHOW US YOUR VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS – for kids or grown-ups!
Please take time to visit other participants and share specific comments with them about their cards. It helps every card maker to know what they did well or what you found most creative so they can continue to do it!
