Won't You Be Mine?

Valentine's Day is less than a week away, but you still have plenty of time to create some sweet cards for those you love. Over at Imaginisce, we are giving you plenty of inspiration this week with our Be Mine event. Three days of layouts, cards, and projects all in preparation for Valentine's Day. Here's what I created.

Love You Card


Everything on this card was created with Imaginisce's Garden Party collection. The different shades of pink are accented with blues, greens, and corals. Just perfect for some Valentine themed projects.

I thought I'd give you a quick little tutorial about how to create this fun layered flower. It's really easy. I used my Cricut Expression and Sentimentals cartridge, but you could just as easily use scalloped circle or even plain circle punches. You need six layers: two 3", two 2.5", and two 2". Spritz each circle with water. Scrunch up each circle and then dry it with a heat gun. Spread the layers back out, stack them, and then pierce a hole in the center. Use a brad to connect them all together. You can then embellish as desired.

Thanks for popping in today. Be sure to head on over to the Imaginisce blog and see what else the design team has come up with. Leave a little love at the Imaginisce blog and you might just win yourself a prize. Just cause we love ya!

Thanks for the tip on making the flower, it looks so much better 3-D than just using the flat flowers.
