Furry Folk Valentine

Have you got your Valentines made yet? If not, let me encourage you to consider a non-traditional stamp set! Little animals have cuteness-factor built right in, and when paired with a heart-felt sentiment, they make the perfect image for a variety of occasions!

Furry Folk has lots of little images. If you stamped each individually, it would be pretty involved. The way to speed up production of multiple cards like this is to set up more than one image on your stamp block (another very nice option with the new clear stamps). I paired the two animals, and on another block the flower and ladybug. The sentiment was already a unit. I chose three hearts from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die, popped them up on dimensionals, and drew the strings on with a Stampin' Write marker.

The card measures 4.25" square, with the panel a 3.75" square (also popped up on dimensionals). I'll hand out most of these personally, but if I need to mail a few, they'll fit in our standard sized envelopes easily. -Kathy
