Now to the final two of my four children. My third-born child is Jackie, so I started thinking about a card for her and decided another of my sister's Valentine kits would be perfect for Jackie, so I dug it out. (Credit to my sister: Heidi Gonzales: My Lil' Scrap Corner).
Again, I decided it needed to be larger and square, so I cut a new cardbase and found a pretty red flowered print as the next mat layer. I Copic colored little Tilda and fussy-cut her out. The original card had a Spellbinder Label die behind the little stamped Magnolia Tilda, but I thought a heart would be more to my liking and make it much more Valentine oriented. I was really happy with the paper and die changes I made, yet it the card retains the original flavor of the card design. I know Jackie will like her.
My last 2012 Valentine card will be for child #4, Mark, and his wife Ginger. I had purchased a card kit while visiting California at my favorite vintage scrapbook store, Paradise Scrapbook Boutique in Chico, CA. For some reason, though it has a little boy on it, its hearts reminded me of love birds, which then made me think of Mark and Ginger as they have three Cockatiel, which look like "love birds" to me. So, I decided to buy the kit and use it for them for an anniversary card, but it also seems like a good match for Valentine's Day. I sent to my vintage image stash on my computer and found the little love birds I used on the card, and matted them with two mat layers and zigzag stitched around the bird image. I was pretty please with the outcome and think Mark and Ginger will like it as well.
