Quick and Easy Valentines - Sweet Nothings set

Here's a way to put to use this Monday's Manic Monday special. I love the Sweet Nothing series, they are some of my favorite sets. I was already working on some Valentines with them so I have some examples on how to use these graphics easily. They are sale (3 graphics sets and one paper pack for just $2.50) until Tuesday night. Don't forget to use your coupon! (To get a coupon, try downloading this free file and use the 25% off coupon in the email receipt.)
I just pixel-traced the images, and shadowed them. I placed a circle (for the short sentiment) on each of the images, then shadowed the circle and image. You can see the results below.
I placed the short sentiments inside the circle, but printed them separately from the image since I wanted to pop them up off the Valentine card.
I used LD Cotton Candy to write matching sentiments for the back of the card. I was able to get 6 complete Valentine cards on one sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper and the front of one more (I don't have a back sentiment for the whale).
These are so quick and easy and assembling them will be a great craft for the girls to do themselves.
Don't miss getting this great bundle while it is one sale (sale ends Tuesday night).
I also popped-up some hearts here and there!
I printed these on Staples Photo Supreme matte paper (did you get it when it was on sale last week?), and cut from MTC to the Cameo. The settings were blade = 3, force = 33. I popped-up the circles with foam tape (it is only 1/8" high so better than most pop-dots for the look I like). I just glued the back sentiments on.

I wanted to come say thanks for your sweet comment about M's haircut on my blog--I tried emailing you a response, but your account's not set up for it, so I knew I could find you here :)
