A Simple Valentine For My Mom

As mentioned in a previous post, I tend to find a favorite Cricut cartridge and keep using it, and using it, and...well you get my drift.  Today's card comes from the A Child's Year cartridge. I used the Cricut Craft Room Application and my Cricut Expression 2 machine to size and cut this image.  I've noticed my Expression 2 cuts so much better when I use it with Craft Room!  I'll be so glad when I can link all my Gypsy cartridges to the Craft Room. Now, to continue on with my card,  I used the silhouette image of the mother and child.  I used craft cardstock and this beautiful pink plaid cardstock as my background layers.  I used foam adhesive squares to add dimension. I used my Fiskars punch to create the heart that is being passed from child to mom.  I embellished the heart with Perfect Pearls and silver Stickles. To finish this card I added a little pink bow using ribbon purchased in the Valentine's bargain bin at Hobby Lobby ($1.00!!).  This card is simple and sweet; perfect to give my mom for Valentine's Day.  Enjoy the holiday weekend!  Thanks for visiting!
