Love All

I normally only make one Valentine's card a yr but this year my Hairdresser asked me to make her some cards to sell to her customers and I managed to make her up a selection of 12 cards.  These are the first 4.

I have used a  Tonic Die Set  Called 'Hello Posey' but made  my own centre into it.  This is one time that would definitely advocate using a double sided sticky sheet to cut the die out with. Almost impossible other wise to use glue on the really thin cuts and it does need to be stuck down onto the card firmly.  Because of the large die size the card base is  non standard size so I made a matching envelope and decorated to match.  Printed the sentiment  off in word and the 3 pearls completed it
Entered this card only into the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania # Be My Valentine.
Tuesday Taggers # Romance.
Daisy Chain Challenges: #27 Have a heart.
Craft Rocket Challenge #56 Valentine.
Get Creative # 77 Anything goes with optional lots of red.

I chose to make this card in a pretty pastel pink using another  Tonic Die cut set called ' Thankyou Blossom'. I again used my own  centre that I printed off in word. Didn't feel this design needed anything else added to it so just made up a matching envelope to finish. 

Entering the above card into these challenges:
Aud Sentiments #220 Love or Valentine sentiment.
Creatalicious Challenges #156 Anything goes with optional Love/hearts.
Crafter's Castle #14 Anything goes / option valentines.
Creative Inspirations # With love.

Then I decided to go really bold and go black and silver.  The  Decorative heart stamp I think was a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine  a few years ago now.  I used a scalloped card base and attached  black card cut slightly smaller. Layered up with hearts die cut using Sweet Dixie Nesting Dies. SDD168.
The silver edging  and silver hear sticker  were from my stash. I made a matching envelope and again stamped with the decorative heart stamp. The sentiment was printed off in word and die cut using one of the centres from the tonic die sets used on the two cards above.

Entering the card above into the following challenges:
Double 'D' Challenge # Hearts any colour.
Lets Craft and Create #144  Anything goes + option from the heart.
Creative With Stamps #35 Love.
Pattie's Creations #155 Love,love,love.

For this last card I used a really dark red cardstock to die cut the centre piece using a Tonic Die set called 'Me To You'. Die cut a few small hearts using the Sweet Dixie Nesting Dies set.  Silver edging and silver heart stickers were from my stash.  I used a scalloped card base and decorated an evelope to match.
Entering this card into the following challenges:
Creative Moments #162 Anything goes/romance.
Brown Sugar Challenge#287 Love and or Valentines Day.
Card Mania #113 Love is in the air.
Dream Valley #195 Love and kisses.
