Valentines's Day is right around the corner! I am a cardmaker by nature so this holiday speaks to the part of my heart that belongs to paper and ink and all things shiny. Because of my obsession with little bits of loveliness one of my favorite things to do is create custom embellishments for my special handmade greetings.
I can easily do that with the glass, trays, findings and images available at Craft Fantastic. They afford me the flexibility to quickly incorporate special little bits into my creations. Here's a peek at a few of the Valentine's Day cards I'm sending out this year.
This one is a bit less traditional using colors normally reserved for Spring. I like the lightness of this card and how it gives the recipient a glimpse of warmer days to come. Here I've used a Medium Glass Round and two Tiny Glass Rounds plus images pulled from the Washi Papers and Vintage Matchbox Image Sheets.
Here's a close up shot of the sweet embellishments I made for this card.
My next card is simple, but a Medium Glass Heart and a series of Tiny Glass Rounds featuring images from the Valentine's Day and Tiny Alphabet #2 Image Sheets, help to convey my message.
Here's a closer look!
A little "love" goes a long way!
Here I've used one of the Twinkle Pendants I created last week. If you need a refresher on how I created this, here's a link. A Small Heart Charm available in our Small Heart Charm Kit adds just the right finishing touch to this card.
These embellishments made for fun additions to my Valentine's Day cards. Imagine personalizing them to suit the recipient by creating glass pieces that feature a family photo, a picture of a special pet, a map image showcasing a hometown, a bit of artwork from Jr's fingerpainting class, the list goes on and on! The options are truly endless and I guarantee that whoever receives one of your cards adorned with a customized embellishment will be truly surprised and amazed at your thoughtfulness.
