Kangaroo & Company Valentine Cards

 It warmed up a little this weekend and our snow is all melted. Looks like it’s going to be dry for the next week. This weekend sure flew by, I did manage to make a couple of my valentine cards. Still have many more to go. 

I used the same sketch from my last two cards to make these cards for my grandchildren. 

For this card I started with a Heavy Basic White 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card base. I then ran a piece of Basic White 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 through my Cut and Emboss machine with the Brick and Mortar embossing folder #149643.I then layered a piece of old retired DSP (sorry I don’t know the name of the paper) that was cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 that I cut on a diagonal about 1/3 down. The xoxo stamp is from this month’s Paper Pumpkin. I emboss it with white embossing powder on a 5/8 in strip of Basic Black paper. I then layered it on a diagonal across the card and trimmed the ends. 
I stamped two of the kangaroos and hearts from the Kangaroo & Company stamp set #154502 with Memento black ink. I stamped the little Love you much in Basic Red. I colored these with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Real Red Stampin Blends. I die cut all the shapes using the matching Kangaroo Dies #154334. 
I glued the hearts to the top of the sentiment die cut. I then cut a small slit along the top of the pouch so the sentiment would be covered until you pull the hearts up. I used dimensionals on the back of the Kangaroo, avoiding the area where the sentiment slips in. I finished off the front with three small resin hearts embellishments #154578.

I stamped the little kangaroo on the bottom right corner of a piece of Basic White cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and then colored in with the same Stampin Blends as the big Kangaroo. I then stamped the inside sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set #148626 with Basic Red ink. To finish off the envelope I glued a matching piece of DSP cut to 6 x 2/14 to the back flap.

This card was basically the same except I used the Painted Texture 3D folder #154317 to emboss the front Basic White sheet with. The DSP was the retired From My Heart. For the inside I used a 3/4in strip to match the front and layered the Basic White on a piece of Real Red.

I think my grandchildren Eli and Josie with enjoy these cards. I’d love to know which one is your favorite.

  1. She has a special place in her heart for Sega and on-line poker. The odds are barely better for the participant with European roulette. 퍼스트카지노 The home edge is with the zero and 00, as these numbers can't be won by the participant. This variation has two rules throughout the recreation; the en prison and la partage rule. Don’t let the French terminologies deceive you into considering it’s a sophisticated roulette version. D’Alembert System– This roulette technique has hanging similarities with the Martingale System.
