Cooking With Cricut: Child's Valentine

Greetings all!   Our challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to create a child's valentine using the colors red, pink and white.

I used the Create-A-Critter and Cake Basics cartridges to create this 5" x 5" square cutie.  The card is cut from a plain red card stock at 5" tall by 10" wide and folded in half.  The plain white card stock mat is cut at 4 1/2" square.  Before I cut it, I printed the text onto the paper using Microsoft Publisher and my printer.

"You're the only fish in the sea for me!" - card front

The fish is cut from Create-A-Critter at 3 1/2" wide.  The heart "bubbles" are cut from the Cake Basics cartridge at 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" wide.  I used papers and card stocks from my scrap stash.  I added pen detailing with hot pink and white jelly roll pens and a rosy cheek with some chalk.

The sentiment on the inside of the card is cut from Cake Basics at 3 1/2" wide by 1 1/4" tall.  The sparkly heart is off of a glittery heart garland -- I just snipped it and glued it on!
