Tic-Tac-Totally Awesome

Hi Friends!

I can’t believe January is halfway over.  I usually don’t make Valentine’s Day cards – except for my kids’ teachers but decided to make some extras since I had everything out. My goal is to make at least two of every card so that I have some extras on hand if ever needed – and it will remind to mail more cards out.  I haven’t done that in a while!  I definitely mailed more “home” when we were living in Ohio for the short 15 months that we were there.

How fun is this My Favorite Things stamp and die set???  I thought it would be fun for the kids, but adults would find it cute too.  I decided I wanted a shaker background on these cards – haven’t done it in a while and thought of my glitter friend, Missy, when I was making these cards.  🙂 I thought I was keeping this one simple, but I did some embossing and the X’s and O’s were cut from different paper for added interest.  These fine pieces are not fun to glue, so I whipped out my Xyron Creative Station and turned all the pieces into stickers before placing them on the card – equally annoying because of all the little pieces…we have battles as cardmakers too!

Tic-Tac-Totally Awesome 3

I think I may use the stamp set only to make the kids’ cards for the classmates this year.  No coloring required – always a bonus when mass producing!  Anyway – just a quick post today.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Ah, what sweet cards, Caly, and you are right about card-makers and our “battles” with things like adhesives, etc. Haha! I agree about your decision for mass producing for the class. Hugs! xoxo
