Friday Friend Feature #16

Today I am sharing some gorgeous Valentine cards created by the equally lovely Alicia. This set of 4 cards was made using papers from both the Heartstrings and Brushed collections. The "Love You" sentiment can be found in the Happy to Be Friends stamp set which is jammed packed with sentiments for all occasions.


Alicia followed the same design format for each of these cards but by altering the placement of the embellishments each card has it's own individual look. The selection of embellishments are all available in the Close To My Heart product range - Heartstrings Assortment, Pixie Extra Thick Twine, Red Enamel Hearts, Stuck on You Puffies and Shimmer Trim. The lace doily is a die-cut template that Alicia has amongst her personal collection however, you can reproduce a similar look with shapes from the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection. My suggestion would be the Font Layer found on page 68 of the Art Philosophy booklet.


If you would like create your own version of these cards simply follow the sketch below - Alicia and I would love to see what you come up with and you are welcome to post your finished cards to my Facebook Page... and while the cards showcased today were created with Valentine's Day in mind this sketch can be adapted to suit any theme you wish.


I hope your tomorrow is full of love and romance and you find some time for some crafty playtime over the weekend!
