[Video]CTMH Close to My Heart Artbooking You and Me Valentine's Card

First project of 2014!  And it's all about LOVE!

I saw this zebra striped overlay and thought it would be fun to try with a hot pink and red combo for a Valentine's Day card and here's the result.

All cuts are from the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge bundle as shown below:
The card is a square 5"x 5" card.  Quick tip - to avoid paying more for postage for square cards, pop this card into a 5" x 7" envelope. Problem solved!
Here are the products I used to make the card:

  2. I would take candy over flowers, but my preferred "gift" would be dinner at my favorite restaurant!

  3. I like flowers the most, but my hubby and I usually make our gifts for each other. It makes it more "personal."

  4. I love either but do appreciate something a little more creative. We usually have so much candy still in the house from christmas, and flowers are great but I usually get them on my birthday (January) and anniversary (April) so I don't need him overpaying for them on Valentines day.

  10. I prefer the flowers - they make me smile every time I walk by them, and in February, not much is blooming in my garden.

  12. I prefer carnations and a card. love the card by the way. Also - how come no Hobby Lobby coupons this week?

  13. Joy, Happy New Year! I'm trying to diet, so flowers would be my choice. However, my silly cats keep going after any flowers, so I have to put them up high and that takes some of the fun and enjoyment out of it!
    Love the color combo and would not have thought of it myself, but I have to try it!

  16. I love flowers, especially in the winter when there are none outside. Jean H.

  17. I would not like candy because of the calories. Flowers are nice but not lasting. I like something more lasting. A potted plant might be nice. Actually a day spa trip would be the best.

  22. artbooking is a great cart. I love it. You make it so easy to use. If I get stuck I find your video's. I am a chocoholic. I get irritated about flowers. While I love them and they are beautiful, the cost of and the fact they die has always bothered me. Give me that $$ for my scrap stuff instead LOL.

  23. Like the animal Zebra overlay. I like chocolate. I do not like Godiva chocolate. I prefer Hershey & Lindt. I especially like chocolate truffles. Flowers do not last long. If flowers then I would want a Rose bush to plant outside so I can enjoy them more.

  36. While I do love candy, a quiet dinner out with my husband sounds like a wonderful Valentine's Day! Seeing all the great cards, etc. that you do makes me think I need to get some CTMH Cricut cartridges...

  37. That Artbooking cart is really nice. I love both flowers and candy for Valentine's day, but if I had to choose one it would be the flowers - because they will last longer than the candy in my house. : - )

  43. If my hubby got me candy, then our kids would eat it too. And he's not the type to get me flowers...so we've always settled on a nice dinner out - that's our favorite for Valentine's. :)

  44. I love the flowers but get the candy for my husband and kids. They are the chocoholics in the house.

  46. Joy-

    I prefer chocolate! You can never have to much chocolate (and wine). :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. My husband and I haven't done anything for Valentine's Day in years, but if I had to choose, definitely chocolate! Love chocolate! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Valentine's isn't a big deal around here, but I'd prefer flowers - not roses, but something bright and cheery that didn't die soon after.
    I really like the scrapbook page sample that you had with the stamp set - so beautiful and such soft colors.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Last year Hubby gave me gorgeous purple tulips! I took pictures that are now my screen saver. That's what I love--much lower cal than chocolate! Love the zebra print on your card. TFS!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dark Chocolate...lots of it! and the Flowers, and a special card. Not asking much, am I!
    Nice card.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My husband and I don't celebrate Valentines, per se, because our anniversary is on the 20th. We do tiny, little things like a homemade card or something like that. I would rather save it all for our anniversary!

  58. My husband gives me candy all the time so flowers for Valentine Day are very special. I need to start on my Valentine cards really soon.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I prefer both! Although either is fine with me. I love that card! Thanks for the tip about using a 5x7 envelope for the square cards, I usually avoid making square cards because of the extra postage. I never thought to just use a bigger envelope.

  60. We usually don't do a whole lot for Valentine's Day. Since our Anniversary is in the middle of January, we do our celebrating then. Sometimes he'll bring home a card and a small box of candy. Thanks for the chance to win.

  63. Both for sure! But both are hard for my husband to get given that we live in the boonies, so usually a dinner out is what I get. As long as we are together, I'm happy.

  64. Your Valentine is quick and easy yet pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  65. I really, really, really like these cards today! How am I handling the freezing weather? I had to do all the shoveling through the freezing weather/snow storms here in Chicagoland, as my husband is unable to shovel now.

  68. Well here in Missouri we got 12 inches of snow on Sunday followed by 0 degrees for 36 hours straight. Hot Jasmine tea right next to nice hot bath. Then a wonderful afternoon playing with my brand new cricut expression 2 and cuttlebug that my sweet husband got me for Christmas. I'm such a newbie and I LOVE your website and all the wonderful ideas you show for inspiration. Thank you thank you!!!!!

  69. Great way to start the year, show someone you love them with flowers. They take more effort and are non-fattening.
