Hello, American Crafts friends! It’s Meghann Andrew with you today, and if you’re waiting on the new AC collections to arrive on your doorstep, I’m here with you today to show you what you can create with one you may already have in your stash: Dear Lizzy New Day. Valentines Day is coming right up! These cards can be created with just a few supplies to show someone how much you care and make them smile at the same time!
The New Day collection includes several sweet animals that were perfect for creating these bright and fun Valentines. Each one started with layers of paper journaling cards and die cut frames stitched together, then topped with fun cardstock, chipboard, foam and puffy sticker embellishments!
How can you make a giraffe even cuter than it already is? Put some pink glasses on it! This lovely giraffe appears to be popping up behind the “Be My Valentine” sentiment, taken from the Cardmaking Sticker Book. Next, I added die cut, cardstock and puffy sticker flowers below the banner, and added colorful hearts around the giraffe. The final step was to glam her glasses up a bit with Moxy glitter glue. My giraffe-loving kiddo will love opening this card on Valentine’s Day.
On this card, I added a “flutter” pun sentiment using the wonderful mini alphabet foam letter stickers to the journaling tag, cut from the Dreamer paper, and a heart cut from the Come Alive paper. On the sides of the journaling card, I added cardstock, puffy and layered sticker butterflies. A bit of Moxy glitter glue around the edge of the heart added some sparkle.
Everything is better when you put a cute, glasses-wearing llama on it! The die cut frame, which I added Moxy glitter glue to, housed my punny sentiment created with the foam and colorful cardstock alphabet stickers. I added the llama cardstock sticker using dimensional adhesive, and the sweet puffy tassel sticker, layered flower and chipboard heart to give this card a festive, happy vibe.
If you have the New Day collection in your stash, have fun with the beautiful colors and patterns and sweet animals to create last-minute Valentines! Thanks so much for stopping by!
