Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Valentines Blog Hop

Hey there!! Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Valentine's Day Blog Hop!! 


If you came here from Jeanne's Blog, then you're in the right place!! To start at the beginning of the hop, head over to Lisa's Blog - Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

My project today is a shape card!! The base is from one of Lisa's cutting file sets (picture of files later on in the post...), and the beauty of this set is that the shapes fit PERFECTLY within the size of an A2 card. This means I can still use exactly half a sheet of my letter sized cardstock for a shaped card! Win-Win! :) 


I used the newly released Valentine Kids Cutting Files set for this card... 


I love this set because you can change up the kids' heads and accessories!! Endless combinations! 


I get a little tired of traditional holiday colors, so instead of reds/pinks I decided to go with my two favorite colors - purple and teal! My teal Trendy Twine matched perfectly!! 


I used a cute little Peachy Keen face from the Princess Assortment set. Using Colorbox fluid chalk ink, I inked around the edges of my cuts to add dimension. The paper I used was from Echo Park's Little Girl Collection. I used a white gelly roll pen to add details to my heart - it's supposed to look like a kid wrote it, but I don't think I got "messy" enough! 

My card base was a cutting file from the layered labels 2 cutting files


And of COURSE Lisa has some awesome blog candy!!!
