Valentine Mini Cards

(If you're here for Jodi's birthday blog hop, scroll down to the post below this one)

Today on the Penny Black blog, we're featuring some mini cards for Valentine's day. I cut and folded my CS into a standard 4.25" wide x 5.5" high card, and then cut it in half to get two 2-1/8" wide x 5.5" high mini cards.



Penny Black stamps used ~

30-062 Stuck on You
30-009 Clearly in Love
3578D Hug Me...

On the mouse card, the "hug me" sentiment tag is popped up on foam tape. An extra heart was stamped, colored, and popped up on foam tape over the base layer. Stickles were added to the heart and some Spica glitter pen accents were added to the mouse. Here's a close-up shot of the sparkle and dimension (and you can click on it to make it even bigger)...



On the Love card, the main panel is up on foam tape and gold Stickles were added to the dots around the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a good one!

So cute my friend! As I look at these, how wonder they'd be to use as a bookmark!!!

These cards are so cute. You could even make them into a gift by putting a magnet on the inside and then they could be used as book markers as well. Every time the person goes to read they will be reminded of how much they are loved. Just a thought!
