Valentine Cards

I volunteered to do a little social at a local Senior's home and thought that making some Valentine cards and eating sugar cookes and date oatmeal sandwich cookies would be the perfect event.

 I did a few prototypes and then I realized that maybe I would be dealing with amateurs so I scaled back a bit.
This card looks simple but there were quite a few steps... 3 pieces of embossing and I was cutting all the hearts with my Big Shot, so this card was abandoned. Too many pieces and too much prep.

Then at the suggestion of a friend, I decided to turn to the Silhouette for a simple card, that could be cut quickly and would be easy for my clientele to assemble.
How cute it this?
The XO is a chipboard sticker so there will be a variety to choose from. In all I came up with 4 card designs and with the help of my willing assembler, we put together 40 card packs, all prepped and ready to go. Check back for other samples. There is still time to whip up a few of these cards in time for the big day.
