Valentines for the Kids

Here are the valentines I made for the kids this year. Nothing too fancy, but I wanted to convey our love for them as individuals. I look the pictures the day before Valentines' Day, so they are very recent. My hope is to create similar type of valentine for them each year so that they can save them and have a record of what they looked like and what they were doing each year.

The inside had a list of five things that we love about them. Obviously each list was different. This one is Elise's.

I love that the Scallop Square die is clear! I printed the list of things we love on Whisper White cardstock and then lined up the die before I cut it so that it was perfectly centered the way I wanted it. Then I stamped a heart next to each item.

I signed and dated the back of each card.

Supplies: Things I Love**, Schoolbook Serif Alphabet, Love You Much, All Year Cheer II (retired), Melon Mambo ink/marker & cardstock, Pretty in Pink ink & cardstock, Bordering Blue ink & cardstock, Night of Navy ink & cardstock, Heart to Heart Punch, Scallop Square Clear Die (Big Shot), Stampin' Dimensionals
