BBTB2 Valentine Challenge

Now is the time we all have sweet thoughts as Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  So the challenge on Bitten by the Bug 2  is to make something for that holiday.

This is a box card made from a svgcuts.com cut called Conversation Hearts box card.  It is available as just this cut or part of a group of designs called Hearts Aflame.  I love box cards and Mary makes such great ones that go together quickly.

One of the things I love about using my Cricut is that I can make personal and unique cards for those I love.  The heart on the front was designed with the word “LOVE”, but I decided that I wanted to change that up to my granddaughter’s name.  I did that by hiding the contours of the letters in the heart, then I used the Cricut Sans font to spell her name since that seemed to be the closest to the font on the hearts.  After sizing it to fit, I attached it to the heart.  You could also use the slice feature to do the same thing since both will end up cutting the letters in the heart.  I used a lot of scrap cardstock for the hearts along with lots of rhinestone hearts. To me the best part of my Cricut is the ability to design or change things up to make them personal.

Make your own personal Valentine project and add the link to the BBTB2 challenge here.

  2. I like doing just what you did, taking an image and changing it to fit the occasion. Great personalization for this striking and exploding card. Love it. I know those cards take time to make, and yours is filled with LOVE!
