Mini Valentine Cards for the Grandkids

Good morning friends

I thought I would try something different for the Valentine cards my Mom will give the Great Grandkids this year. Since Stampin' Up has those cute envelopes for 3 x 3" mini cards, I made them each a 3 x 3" card. They still get to open an envelope with their names on them but the card's petite size means they can carry them around easier.

Card #1 has one of Karen Burniston's sweet animals - the dog from he Cat and Dog set. These little critters are so easy peasy to put together! I used all scraps from this cute paper pad, cutting apart the words from other sheets in the stack.

Ethan's  Valentine has a cut-apart, a little bear with tiny wiggly eyes and the word You from Word Set 1 Greetings.

For Zachary's card, I used Riley the Moose. Specifically, Dress Up Riley - wearing a shirt. He is not wearing any pants, because Zachary HATES to wear pants. So this customized Valentine is perfect and Zachary will get a big kick out of it.

Riley is so cute! I added black glaze pen highlights to his eyes so they are nice and shiny.

For little Alma's card, I used another cut-apart, and since it said 'love bug' I added a die cut ladybug.

Finally, here is another Riley, this time he is wearing pants. This card will go to Ilai, who has no problem with wearing pants. :-)

The little hearts on Riley are from the Dog and Cat die set.

  2. Super cute cards. Love the paper you used. Did you hand draw the names?

    1. Thanks so much Marlene. Yes, I did draw their names. I'm not very good at hand lettering but that doesn't stop me from doing it, ha ha.
