Kid Friendly Valentine

 Hi Everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. I love crafting with my kids.  Although I personally love crafting in a more complicated or detailed manner, I find it very enjoyable to break it all down to the basics and make simple cards with the boys. Today I am sharing this simple card with not only my readers but the readers at She's A Sassy Lady.
What makes this card so easy is the ability to have it put together quickly. I had all the paper pre-cut for a 4 by 4 card.  My matting was cut to 3.75 by 3.75 and the patterned paper is cut at 3.5 by 3.5,  This paper is from Jillibean Soup. The "LOVE" and it heart layers were cut at 2.50 inches with Cricut Home Accents (real size off). We pop dotted the heart. These were made for Alexander's teachers and para.
 I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day! As always thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and following us here at She's A Sassy Lady and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.

It's nice to see that not all Valentine's Day cards have to be red and bubblegum pink.

What fun it must be crafting with the guys and them with you!!! The cards are great, and I agree that it's wonderful Valentine cards can be fabulous in other colors other than just the traditional red and white!

You always do a great job, Elizabeth!
