Side by Side Sweetheart Cards

I had the flu this week because my egg allergy doesn't allow me to take the flu shot. I had to spend a lot of time in bed instead of crafting, but I had picked up an old 2011 CTMH Idea Book that was in a stack. I was inspired to use any extra Sweetheart papers to make more valentines and anniversary cards to send to my friends. When I finally felt well enough to come to my craft room, I found a complete unused package of Sweetheart papers. (I used to order extra packs of paper since I often had customers who would show up at the last minute wanting to join our workshops.)

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to make the first card, then I altered it a bit and made several more versions.

The words were stamped using CTMH Soul Mates Word Puzzle and the Cotton Candy hearts aned flourish were from Card Chatter-Love from 2011.  Here are the other slightly altered versions with the same paper but different embellishments. I didn't think the pink circle was as effective as the white so this was the only one with pink:

After making a double page scrapbook layout and 6 cards, I still have 15 1/2 patterned papers and  cardstock pages left of the 24 in this paper pack, (not counting my consultant pack with 7 more pieces of two patterns). More Sweetheart cards and pages to come!

Thank you for visiting. May God bless your crafting!

I'm sharing the first card with the following challenges:

House of Cards February Challenge - Love Theme and/or colors
Little Red Wagon - Color Challenge #380 -  red and/or pink and black
Love to Scrap #94 - Who Loves You, Baby

I remember these papers! I probably have some leftover in my stash. These cards will inspire me to dig it out! Thanks for playing along at USE YOUR STUFF - Gail

Okay, it took me awhile to figure out I was looking at different cards... You did an excellent job of stretching your stamps and supplies... Each card is just a bit different and I love that.. Why just do one design when you can do 4 or 5! And the designs are fabulous! The striped paper is perfect and so fitting for this challenge. Your ribbon and other embellishments are a fantastic fit as well. Wow!! Thank you so much for joining us at House of Cards. Looking forward to following you and to see more of your work..
Cyber Hugs,
