Popcorn Valentine Card

Did you know it was National Popcorn Day this past week? Yep! And over at the Outlawz Festive Fridays group, that's just one of the 4 themes you can choose from to make a card for something "festive." You could choose "Appreciate a Dragon Day," "Penguin Awareness Day," or "Appreciate a Squirrel Day," also. Lots of fun ideas to play with over there!
My mom commissions me to make her holiday cards, and since she's a big popcorn fan, I thought this Valentine card would be perfect for her to send out this year. The adorable girl is a digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles. I imported her to my Silhouette Design Studio software and did a trace of her so I could digitally color her. My mom sends out 100 Valentine cards, so I knew I wouldn't have time to hand color that many cards. I sized the digi the way I wanted it and did a print and cut. I also duplicated a few popcorn kernels and hearts and digitally colored those in and made a print and cut of them, too. The "popping in to say" sentiment is a clear stamp from Stamps of Life's "Words for Popcorn" set. It has lots of fun expressions and a few fun pieces of popcorn you can stamp.
This card is a 5x7 base. I sprayed it with some red Smooch Spritz spray to put some fun color on the front. Then I added the popcorn kernels and hearts I cut on my Silhouette to decorate the bottom of the card. I tied some yellow twine to the side, also.
For the inside, I continued with the movie/popcorn theme: (I made everything on the inside with my Silhouette)
Thanks for visiting, and may the Lord bless you in all you do today!
