Color Dare Valentine

It’s time to join the Color My Heart Dare Challenge! This week’s challenge is to use all and only Glacier, Charcoal, Bashful and (optional) Silver. I chose to create this whimsical Valentine’s Day card using some paper from the Chelsea Gardens and Gimme Some Sugar paper collections.  You can find a list of all of the supplies I used at the very bottom of this post.


Paper Needed: 4¼” x 5½” Card Base, 4¼” x 5½” Glacier Cardstock, 3¼” x 4½” B&T Paper (Chelsea Gardens)

Cricut Images: Pine Tree – #MD6794B, Heart – #M4289B, Banner – #M39162

Techniques Used on this Card:
• The border on the Glacier base was created using a ruler and our Chalk Marker.
• A PML Card from the Gimme Some Sugar collection was used to create the “Heart Trees”.  The outlines on the “Heart Trees”  were made using the “Write” feature in Cricut® Design Space.
• The sentiment was created on the Glacier cardstock banner using a font called “Elephant”, then a banner cut from Charcoal cardstock was layered behind.

I had so much fun creating this Valentine’s Day card.  Sometimes you just need to step  “out-of-the-box” and make something new. I hope you join me in the Color My Heart Dare weekly challenge.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. I forget about those PML cards, and love that you used that as an additional design paper from the packet for your hearts. It’s been a long time since I have created my own sentiment on Cricut and you did a great job…you have inspired me to go back and make my own instead of searching and purchasing for something I can make. Your card is adorable and thanks for joining us at Color Dare and please bring someone with you to our Buddy Program.

  3. Swoon-polka dots & gingham hearts-what could be better. Love how you “finish” your card with a white frame on the Glacier. Thanks for playing at Color My Heart!
