Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's day everyone! I did not get an opportunity to do many Valentine related crafts this year round.  On Saturday, I was able to pull out a few of my valentine sets to make Reagan's classmates "friendship cards."  Yes, you heard me right...apparently that's what they are calling them these days.

On Valentine's day, they are having a teddy bear tea party where they wear a fancy hat and dress, have tea with their teddy bears, and pass out friendship cards.  Including Reagan's teachers and classmates this meant making 15 cards total.  I want something easily mass producible and with the exception of the small amount of copic coloring these were fairly easy.  It took about 2 hours in total.
I used the tiny valentine treats stamp from PTI to stamp the image and the sentiment.  It comes with a variety of other cute sayings, but I stuck to the ones that were "friendship" neutral. The cards were premade 3x3 cards from recollections.  They came ten to a pack.

 I did some very simplistic copic coloring on the images and used my nestabilities dies to cut out the circle and scalloped circle.  I used an old crate paper collection filled with my leftover scraps.
 On the envelopes, I stamped some hearts and the "happy mail for." I used sticker letters to spell out everyone's name and seal each envelope with heart pattern washi tape.

 I kept the inside simple, only stamping a sentiment and allowing Rea to doodle in the inside.
 I finished the back off with a handmade stamp and that was all there was to it!!! 

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by ---Nicole
