Kids Valentine Day Cards-Day 1

I love to make cards but I REALLY love to make cards for kids. They are so fun to make and I love card drives like THIS one...makes my heart swell. I decided to show a card a day this week that I plan on sending to encourage you to join in and send some cards to Winter. You can find all the information HERE.

My first card...I decided to use THIS set again because I can't get enough of it! I made a blow hole on the top of the whale using black enamel and loved the idea of the whale spraying out hearts rather than water. :) Here's a closeup with the shine of glossy accents on the whale...I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background on THIS card and then sanded it. I love that Hero Arts cards has the white core!

Also, I decided to change the sentiment. I masked off the word "time" and added a few dots. Then, I stamped the inside...
I liked "have a whale of a valentine's day" more! :)

Thanks for stopping by. Be back tomorrow with another card.
