Good morning and happy Wednesday. I've got 2 non-traditional valentines cards for my 2 non-traditional daughters. First up is a card for my youngest daughter, who loves owls and hates pink. I used the technique shown in this week's Make it Monday #151: Drop Shadow Die Cuts.
I used a new Paper Smooches die and tag combination, and I have to thank Emily Leiphart for the tutorial on how to use those dies, because I am embarrassed to admit I had no clue. Isn't that owl just adorable? The owl is stamped in Spring Rain, and shadowed in Blueberry Sky. The branch is stamped in Simply Chartreuse and shadowed in Ripe Avocado.
This next card is for my older daughter--she loves dogs and is perfectly fine with pink. I picked up a cute little paper pad on sale at Michaels called Recollections Valentine and used some sheets from that set for my paper piecing. I used the dogs and bird from Woofers and Tweeters, and the hello die that came with the Quote Tag die. I am entering this card at Paper Smooches Sparks.
I am also entering both of these cards at Addicted to CAS: Love, Simon Says Monday Love Notes, Simon Says Wednesday Have a Heart and Simply Create Too #54 to make a female card.
Thanks for Visiting
