Cricut Cardz Ch# 101 - Valentine Theme

For Ch#101: "Be My Valentine"
Make a card for Valentine's Day using 
any cartridges or colors you'd like.
You can enter your card for Ch# 101 by 
visiting Cardz TV.

Here is my Valentine card for this challenge:

Project #25 of this year
 A2 size card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4")
Most of the cards I make are "tent" fold style.
I take an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock;
cut it down the middle at 4 1/4";
turn strip of paper horizontal;
score and fold at 5 1/2". Voila!

Pink and Green gingham papers from Hobby Lobby's 
Paper Studio stack called Fairytale Princess with Glitter 12" x 12" stack.

Buttons & Dew Drops from Michael's.
Black gingham ribbon from Michael's also. I'm sad now because that was the rest of my black gingham ribbon. :(  I guess it's time to go shopping. :)
MICKEY & FRIENDS for rose cut @ 3" with Shadow feature from p. 109.

Now, I know I said the rose was on page 109 and in the above picture it says page 55. I don't know why some manuals have different page numbering. But at least you see the page, so you can easily find it in your manual no matter what the actual page number says in your book.

The border punch is made using Fiskars' "Treading Water" punch. This is one of my most favorite punches!

The rose is adhered using foam squares.
Buttons and Dew Drops adhered with Glue Dots!
Black background paper cut @ 5 1/4" x 4".
Green gingham paper cut @ 5" x 3 3/4".
Pink border punched paper cut @ 3 3/4" x 1 1/2".

"Thankful for you!" stamp from Mary's Cardz TV Stamps "Thankful For You" set.

Have a happy, creative day!
Smiles :) Janis

Super cute! I do not have this cartridge but the more I see you use it the more I would like to have it. Very nice card. Love the gingham and plaid together.
