7 Kids College Fund Challenge #39 - Love is in the Air!

As Valentine's Day quickly approaches we're getting ready for those valentines by challenging you to make 3x3 cards using the theme Love is in the Air! 7 kids college fund has the perfect envelopes for these cards so you don't have to make your own. These are the perfect size to make with your kids for all those school valentines. Be sure to check out the 7 kids college fund blog for more ideas from the DT!


I had a lot of fun with my card. I first embossed it with Tim Holtz Postcard Texture Folder and rubbed Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China on top. Then using different patterns from Echo Park Be Mine Collection I cut out my hearts using Spellbinders Scallop Hearts. I glued them together leaving the sides popped with Helmar 450 Quick Dry. I wanted to stitch it but I don't have a sewing machine easily accessible so that is another option. The sentiment comes for the sticker pack of the Echo Park Be Mine Collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
