Cyan wanted to make Valentine’s cards for some of her school friends.. she picked coloured card which I trimmed into some little rounded cards using a corner punch. Pink for the girls, naturally, and purple and blue for the boys. She drew a different picture on each card, and added some heart stickers, gems and sequins.
A fairy and a princess..
A dragon and a T-rex for the boys..
Even the envelopes looked cute, she added heart stickers on all the ‘i’s..
I included the little toadstool in the photos at Cyan’s request, when I asked her not to seal the cards in the envelopes so I could take them out later and take a picture of them she told me “I’m finding pretty things to go in the picture with my cards”. Amazing, five years old and she’s thinking about staging photographs!
This laser-cut wooden heart was my alternative to a Valentine’s card for Karl, from Timber Green Woods on Etsy. I love that it has the year – 2011 – worked into the design, it commemorates this the year of our wedding.
