Valentine's Day Create a Critter Cards

My husband bought me this cartridge for Christmas and I am only now getting to play with it. I have to say it is my absolute favorite cartridge! Everything has cut beautifully and layered just as nice!!

This is a cute little squirrel. I chalked him up a bit to add dimension to the brown colors. The plaid paper was a scrap and then the backside of it was blue. So I flipped it and pulled out one of my punches from ek success that had a little heart border. I ended up doing it on both sides and voila' it looks like ribbon!!!

So the squirrel is for my son Xander on Valentine's day. I will give each of the boys a little candy treat too!

Next I did a koala bear and used the same pattern/layout for each of the cards. This is for my oldest Austin because he is a bear collector. (Each of my kids has a 'theme' animal. Austin is bears, Xander is dogs and Jace is monkeys.)

I know they are not traditional Valentine's colors or themes but for my two boys I think it is perfect. I don't think either would be thrilled if I made them a pink hearted card! LOL!

Thanks for looking and commenting!
