V-Day Card 2k14

Ah, Valentine's day. Ever cheesy, but I kind of love all the pink and red and cutesy hearts! I'm being ambitious and thinking of cooking something for Sak today, but if that doesn't work out we'll get some fancy take-out or something.

I knew I wanted to use more of my plastic shrinky dink film for this year's card, so I made a little panda graphic, printed, cut, baked and glazed.
I ended up not making very many though. Charms are a lot more work than they look! Fixing all the jump rings on to attach it to the strap proved the most tedious part.
I love how they came out though, so fun!  I glazed it with clear nail polish, so hopefully it won't yellow like resin.

The base of the card is cuttlebug embossed, and a short message is glued to the back.
With that metal bump from the strap, they didn't all make it unscathed through the mail sorter.  My sister's envelope was all torn up at least.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved one - or a flirty eye encounter with a cute stranger if you're not in a relationship! Ha! I guess you could have a flirty eye encounter with your spouse too, but whenever I try that Sak just thinks I'm being weird.


  1. That's just to cute. I love the diy and the panda is adorable.

  2. You have a cuttlebug tooooo? I am so honored to be a recipient! ;) I didn't send any out this year... since the ones I did make.. have my face on them! HAHA! :D (I made one each of our Oakland office and we sent them to our DC office... to give to each other. :oP)

  3. happy belated valentine's day! so cute!
