Crazy 4 Challenges - Oval Accordion Valentines Card

So the challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges this Saturday is to create a Valentines card, or a card for a loved one, which also uses glitter...
I had one more Valentines card to make for my children - this time my 11 year old son.

I've had this My Favorite Things T-shirt die for a while, and thought it would be perfect for an 'I {heart} Tom' shirt!
I used a Tim Holtz die for the letters, and an old Sizzix 'Serif Essentials' alphabet die for the '?' 
(I figure Tom's going to guess pretty quickly who it's from!)
The card base is cut with Karen Burniston's new Oval Accordion die set for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I really do love the elegant shape of this die!
 I used glitter card for some of the lettering and heart (cut from Sizzix Owl #2) and the black patterned paper is from Studio Calico 'Darling Dear' 6x6 pad.

Some of products used:



  1. what a fun Valentine card ... I am sure your son is going to love it!

  2. He'll never guess! What a fun mom you are!

  3. Terrific card! Oh dear, I need that t-shirt die....
