Welcome to Jean's Crafty Corner and Day 2 of the CookingWithCricut.com Sweet Shop Blog Hop! Thanks so much for joining us again for more Valentine's inspiration. If you missed Day 1 of our hop, be sure to go back and check out all of yesterday's posts for great projects and giveaways along the way as well.
If you've come from visiting Gaby at Gaby Creates, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to Cooking with Cricut and start at the beginning.
For today, I made some small Valentine's cards with candy to share with you. I began by using the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge to cut out two background shapes in different sizes so they could be layered. Next, I used the Birthday Bash Cartridge to cut the elephant and the Storybook cartridge to cut a frame for my sentiment. I then used waterfall colored stickles to add the water coming out of the elephant's trunk and then used a glue dot to secure a candy heart floating on the water. Finally, I hand wrote the sentiment "Sending you tons of Love" and added some faux stitching lines around the outside to finish off the cards.
