Quick Valentines - it's all in the layering

Hi crafters

I received some lovely cards in the mail and wanted to share them with you.  

Here's the collection (one I made).

They all use these great framelits with the Be Mine set.  These hearts are going to be a keeper for me. Sometimes I sell my retired items but this set will be around in my craft cupboard for a while.  You get a lot with 1 die set... so many that I had to cut out the whole collection and put it on a page!  

Here's one from my extended teammate Suzanne.  She used the whisper white notecards (finish at 5 x 3 1/2) and her layer is 4 3/4 x 3 1/4, with two hearts.  

And the inside with Love and an epoxy heart in the o -do you see it?  Technically this is a thank you card but I like it for Valentine's Day, or a Hello or a Thank you.  

Here's one from my team leader Suzie - I won a little competition (random drawing I wasn't clever or talented!). Her card finishes 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 (so it fits into a regular envelope).  The Lipstick layer (at the back) is 4 x 4 and the 4 squares of the designer paper are 1 7/8 x 1 7/8.  I'm going to make a similar card - I love this design!  and I like her foil heart - foil is free right now as a Sale-A-Bration item (spend $50, choose a free item, send me questions

And here's mine. Same notecard as Suzanne with my back layer in Flirty Flamingo 4 5/8 x 3 1/8 and my designer paper is 4 1/2 x 3 the tiny edge showing is designed to match the thin heart shape, and the thin "love you" - that was part of the Well Written set (one of my top 10 favorites in the new Occasions catalog).  A very versatile set. 

Simple cards -- but they really made my day. I hope you make a card, put in it the mail and make someone smile.  Real mail (not window mail) is so nice to receive!

happy crafting, MaryKate
