Sssshhh, It's a Secret!

Don't tell anyone!   I had a smidgen of time and made my Valentine's Day cards.   I know....kinda like old times when I had projects done in advance. Ahhhh, the good 'ole days!  LOL   I am going to get back there!!!

I scaled back and made just six of this card.  I normally do not use them, but I had one of the cheap dollar clear stamp sets, that I picked up after the holiday last year for $.10.   I find they do stamp better with Memento ink, but still are not the most solid lines.  I do really like how you can position the clear stamps on the acrylic blocks, as the birds and the words are two separate stamps.

I had one sheet of this 12 x 12 paper from Carta Bella, Words of Love.   I normally use what I got, but I did not have much in the Valentine's arena.   I challenged myself to use one sheet at $.99.  I was able to make all six cards with one sheet!  I made the dimensions smaller and used the scrap pieces on the second side {polka dots} for an additional layer.

So, here are my $1.09, plus paper, cards!  That is $.18 each, plus paper.  My kinda price!
