a blog about my handmade cards and paper-crafts

XOXO Card

Maybe I should be blogging about Spring or Easter cards, but I still have a handful of Valentines to share on my blog. I didn’t plan on my website being down for most of February and March, so here is one last Valentine for a while.

I made this card quite quickly because I used a DCWV card. DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) makes beautiful paper packs of coordinating card stock. They sell them in bulk single color sheets or in printed sheets with foil, flocking, glitter and shiny embossing. DCWV also makes boxes of pre-made card bases and matching envelopes. Not feeling too crafty, but you like pretty paper? Buy one of their card boxes and they are pretty enough to write in. But for that “Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee” type of crafter, these boxes of cards are great for making easy and fast cards.

I added a strip of shimmery celery green card stock to this card and finished it with a sticker from K & Company, a crystal heart sticket, and some stickers from my stash – probably from some scrapbook club junk mail. I think the result was a masculine, handsome card.

Thanks for reading my blog! I need to go work on some Easter cards now…
