Foxy Friends - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Family!

I can honestly say I am almost done with my Valentine's Day cards!  I can't wait to send them off to friends and family!
The one I created for you today is one of my favorites!  I love the little fox and his birdie friend!

Designer Steps:
1.  Start by using the Sweet Fox die and cut out a rust colored fox and a light tan fox.
2.  Use the rust colored body of the fox and ink the edges for depth.  Use the light tan for the chest and tip of the tail.  Also ink the edges of both of those pieces.  With your makers color the tan bird blue and the wing dark blue.  Color the heart red, the nose and eyeball black
3.  Assemble the pieces as shown above.  I used a white gel pen for the eye dot
4.  Next cut out the grass using the Spring Grass die and green card stock.  Cut out the fence in white using the Victorian Fence die.  Cut out the piece of cloud DP with the largest Double Stitched Rectange die.  Glue all pieces to the DP
5.  Add the fox to the DP by tucking it into the grass
6.  Use an A2 white card base with an embossed inset
7.  Place a piece of fun foam on the DP panel and pop it to the card front.  Add the sentiment and your Valentine is complete

Hello Pink and Main Friends!

I needed a Valentine card with a more masculine feel for my hubby so this is what I came up with!
The card features our new Double Stitched Heart dies and our word die Together.  It also has a matching Together Forever stamp set.

Design Steps:
  1. Use an A2 white card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of DP from the 6 x 6 My Heart paper pad.  Use the second from the largest Double Stitched Heart Die and center it onto the DP and cut. Save the heart to glue on the inside of the card
  2. Add the ribbon and glue the DP to the front of the card
  3. Use a piece of coordinating colored card stock and cut out the solid colored hearts using the Double Stitched Heart dies.  Run the two smaller hearts through an embossing folder
  4. Glue the large card stock heart to the opening in the center of the DP and position the two smaller ones as shown
  5. Using black card stock cut out the Arrow using the Directional Border die set.  Cut the arrow in half and tuck it under the large heart as shown
  6. Using black card stock cut out the Together 3 times and glue them to one another.  Glue to the card as shown
  7. Stamp the sentiment using the Together Forever stamp set onto black card stock and emboss in white then add the dove tail.  Glue to the card

Valentine Pup! - Scrapping Cottage

Hi Scrapping Cottage Family!

 I am making Valentine's for friends and family and the Cottage Cutz dies are so much fun to use!  Plus they are so darling!!
Design Steps:
 1.  Use an A2 white card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of red then run it through a heart embossing folder. Glue to the card front

 2.  I had a set of pink 3 x 3 cards with matching envelops I decided to use.  Glue the small envelope to the card front at an angle as shown.  Then cut a 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 piece of heart DP and glue to the front of the 3 x 3 little card
 3.  Decorate the inside of the card by cutting a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 white Nested Stitched Scallop Square and gluing it to the inside.  Next cut out the words Hugs & Kisses and glue it to the white square.  Complete the inside by cutting a stitched heart from the Stitched Cupcake die

4.  Slide the little card inside the envelope

5.  Cut out your little pup using the Nurse Pup.  I used light brown and dark brown card stock.  I colored the nose and eyes with a black marker

6.  Attach the pup to the little white envelope add a red bow and some additional hearts cut from the Stitched Cupcake die and then finally stamp your sentiment
