Before it's too distant a memory, I thought I'd share some Valentine's Day cards that I made.
I used several techniques that I've shared before.
The fronts of the cards are wood inlay.
You can see this technique in this video using two different colors of wood veneer. For my cards I used cardstock and wood veneer. I love the look you get from embedding or inlaying the veneer rather than gluing it on top of the card front.
The heart card opens in a few different directions:
The tree card has a secret inside as well!
I love the way pop-ups look. They're so simple to do and yet really give some oomph to your greeting cards.
Of course, I "signed" the back of both cards with some hand carved stamps and embossing powder:
Finally, no card is complete without a beautiful envelope. These are the ones I made:
These were fun to make and fun to give. Definitely worth the time and effort to see the smiles on the recipients' faces!
Thanks for stopping by!
