SOS#489 Love is in the Air

 Now is the time to get those Valentine cards made since the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Love is in the Air, now if you don't make Valentines there are other options like Wedding or Anniversary. I decided to make a "Sheetload" using the January 2023 instructions from Crafty Al, if you subscribe to her you tube channel and ring the bell you can download the PDF for free. I had never done anything like this before but it was easy to follow.

This was the test card just to see if everything worked. The instructions made 8 mini slimline cards with two pieces of 12 X 12 patterned paper and 8 pieces of 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut 8 snarky cats added a metallic heart and the sentiment is computer generated. Look I'm in the 21st century LOL.

Finished the inside with a favourite sentiment that is generic 

I went on to make 7 more cards the recipients have hopefully received them by now. The Sheetload instructions make 8 mini slimline cards, 4 of each of 2 designs and if you use double sided coordinating patterned paper you would get 2 of each. Here ar the two designs.

The patterned paper is from a 12 X 12 paper pad I bought hmmm 3 or 4 years ago at Dollarama for $4. I like to use the 100 pound cardstock from Michaels for the bases but you have to have the force of the Hulk to crease it. The shiny hearts we cut from scraps.

Here are the 8 mini slimline "Galentine's Day" cards which by the way is February 13th.

The stash I used was mostly from before the pandemic the newest item was the sheetload skeetch. 

Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the MAIN BLOG and check out what the rest of the team have made, then dig in your stash and make us some "love" cards.
