Create a Critter Valentine Cards featuring MPS stamps!

I am so excited about these great little Valentine's Day cards. I made them for Karli to take to her friends at daycare and a couple extra for my 2 helpers at school. I cannot take credit for the idea, so I will give credit where credit is due. Pam, over at P-Kay Sunshine Creations made the Cricut Chirp newsletter with her adorable creations. While she added ribbon and computer generated sentiments, I put my personal touch on mine by adding Stickles *my fave* and My Pink Stamper stamps *another fave*. Robyn has created several stamp sets that pair perfectly with the Create a Critter cartridge as well as other cricut cartridges. I used the Punnylicious, More Punnylicious, and Everyday Occasions stamps. Click here to see her retailers and product line. (If you click on a picture you can see them in more detail.)

Recipe for the cards:
  • The base (white cardstock) is cut at 4.25x5.5 (These cards will fit in a standard A2 envelope.)
  • The printed paper (K&Company Specialty Paper Pack) is cut at 4x5.25
  • All critter images were cut at 4 inches.
  • My Pink Stamper sentiments were stamped on scraps of white cardstock and cut down to fit the card.
  • Assorted Stickles
  • Pop dots

Hopefully I will get my class set of pillow boxes made in time for Monday. Oklahoma is forecasted to get another big snow storm on Wednesday. (boooooo!) That means I better hit Hobby Lobby & Michaels TOMORROW on my way home from work!!! Thanks so much for looking and I'd love to hear yoru comments or feedback.
