Quick and Easy Valentines!

It is time to think about Valentines!  Do you need several of these wonderful little cards and you don't have a lot of time?  Well, here is a quick and easy way to mass produce Valentines!
My name is Carolyn from Carolyn's Creative Corner and I am honored to be the guest designer today.  I will be using the Cricut hand-held design studio, the Gypsy, a 24x12 mat, the Cricut Cartridges "Sweethearts" and "Wild Card".
This adorable little purse is from the Cricut Cartridge "Wild Card" can hold 6-8 of these small cards and the envelopes!  The purse is cut on a 12x12 mat and fit to page.  Add a ribbon and a stamped sentiment for a simple decoration or decorate to your heart's content!
The card image from the Cricut Cartridge "Sweethearts" is used.  It measures 8 inches by 4 inches.  The decorative images are from the same cartridge.  The images are placed on the front cover of the card.  The image will be cut away and the negative space will be used.
**Please can save space on the mat by making the cards smaller.  This is a 24x12 mat.  There is left over paper, but I will use it for later projects.
This is a second set of cards using a different set of images.  Again, I am using the 24x12 mat.
This is a close-up of one of the cards folded and completed.  I used a set of Valentine stamps for a sentiment on the front.  I used a glitter pen to trim the edges of the card.  The negative space has red plastic attached to show off the image.
Inside of card...a stamped sentiment and the translucent plastic is attached with clear tape.  I like the way the inside image looks!  I thought about covering it up, but changed my mind!
These are some of the cards that I made using the "Sweetheart" cartridge.

But wait...I am not finished...
Look at all the wonderful images that are left behind!  They are just waiting for red card fronts!  So, you get even more Valentines!
Please visit my blog to see what I have done with the leftovers!
