Happppy Valentine's Day!

This is a very fun-to-make Valentine's Day card for one of my sweet little grandbabies.  I have lots of pictures, so please scroll through to see them.  I am entering this one into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge to use patterned paper.  I sometimes make things more involved than they have to be and this was one of those times, but I love making cards, so what the heck!  I found some old paper with a small pattern in my stash and found some plain to match and I was off to the races.  This is a top-folding A2 sized card and I adhered the plain and patterns papers in two layers and then cut the little die (I lovvve the Art Impressions interactive pieces they sell) from the plain paper and adhered that with some two-sided tape.  Next I set about coloring the pile of ducks directly to the watercolored paper with some zig clean color markers. I cut a piece to fit the slider, but I wanted all the images to show instead and allow Charlotte to play with the little piece.  I stamped her name and one of the images on the reverse side and then stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" on the inside.  Oops, almost forgot the mention that I die cut some layers of stitched hearts to use for the sentiment on front!  Thank you for reading and all of the materials used are way at the bottom (-:

  • Art Impressions Stamp, Duck Stackers
