Not your Average Valentines Cards!

Hi Everyone. A couple of Valentines Cards today using the wonderful Circa 1934 Collection from Cosmo Cricket.
This collection is one of my favourites and is so versatile. Here I have threaded the paper through the chipboard piece for a 3D effect. I saw this done somewhere on a stamped image but I cannot remember where – so sorry if this original idea was yours!
Speaking of Valentines – I am definitely NOT a pink person – so finding some “love” elements in this collection was a pleasant surprise.  I am not a big card-maker either, I always try and over complicate things so this time I went completely the opposite direction. These are so simple and were super-quick to make.
Typewriter are everywhere at the moment – I have seen heaps of new CHA releases jumping on the bandwagon – which is great as I LOVE the retro look. 
Another typewriter image. I love these bold colours – great for making a Valentines Card for a man..
This last one is so simple again – but all the colours just work so well together.
Here are a couple of close-ups

Remember to tune into to the Artfull Crafts blog later on this evening as we are launching our new schedules and you will have the chance to participate, feature on the blog and win some great prizes!

Lowri 🙂

    All of these are cute but I really love the ones with the 'word bubble'! I have a vintage typewriter stamp and it would be perfect for these! Plus my anniversary is this week — would make a cute anniv. card! Thanks for posting!
