We will be making these fun cards in our workshop in April.

I wanted to do something different with embossing folders and decided to use the Quatrefoil embossing folder to create some watercolor magic. I swirled three colors of ink with daubers onto the raised surface (the side with the logo) of the folder. Then I spritzed it with water and then gently applied my cardstock carefully rubbing to collect the watery ink.
I sped up the drying process with a heat gun and after stamping the sentiment adhered the artwork to an embossed piece of cocoa cardstock topping it off with some adhesive gold sequins.

Thought I would share a representative sampling of the Valentine cards
I made for the grands this year.
We have lots of grandchildren and I have to admit that in years past I haven't been good about sending cards on Valentine's Day. But, I found myself with a little extra time this year and lots of Cricut Explore options, so I made it my mission to surprise them this year with cards specific to their character and ages (boy tweens and teens are a challenge!)
I used CTMH cardstock and background and texture papers. Most of the cut files are from Miss Kate's Cuttables.
