It was love at first sight when I saw all the cute couples in The Greeting Farm stamp sets: #couplegoals and “Forever With You”. So for my guest designer project for The Greeting Farm I decided to make a bunch of Valentine’s Day cards using the simple Darice “Love Theme” dies and the retired Doodlebug Design “Lovebirds” 6 x 6 paper pad.

The first thing I did was pick the images that I thought could best represent my parents, my older sister and her husband, my niece and her boyfriend, my nephew and his girlfriend, and a crafty friend who loves cats and her hubby. Then I went through and Copic colored up each couple as follows:

I fussy cut each couple with Fiskars Spring Loaded Scissors, inked the edges of the cut images with a Memento Tuxedo Black Marker (for a finished look), and made each of the couples the main focal point of the card fronts. The dies simply framed the images and accented the cards inside and out. The scalloped heart frame die cuts and the “Xs” and “Os” die cuts were stacked and glued together to add a little extra depth, and the couples were all adhered with foam dots to add dimension and interest. I was also able to use up all the scraps to decorate and line the inside of the cards!
