Today I made Valentines with my grandson, Lucas. He needed at least 22 plus one for his teacher. He was a donut with pink frosting and a milk carton hat for Halloween. I chose donuts because he LOVES donuts!
While the Silhouette was cutting all of the donuts, frosting, and sprinkles, Lucas stamped the inside of the cards using Gina K Kraft ink and the MISTI. BTW: It's so easy even a five year old can do it.
Lucas punched small hearts from a variety of punches as I glued them on.
Lucas colored the frosting on the stamped donut on the inside of each card.

Lucas had had enough of stamping, so I stamped the card fronts. After sorting all of the donuts, frosting, and sprinkles, Lucas made stacks of the four donut parts needed to complete one donut as I glued them together and onto the card front. I was more than a little happy to find this Silhouette cut file. I didn't want to stamp and color or glue sprinkles on individually for 24 cards.

After making 24 of these cards, Lucas was pretty much maxed out on card making, so I made the teacher card myself. It is a larger card - 5 1/2 x 6 1/2. I also made a large donut for Lucas to take home and play with (the most important part).

I'll be making Valentines with my 3 year old granddaughter, Elena, later this week. She only needs 8 plus a teacher card. I am still in the brainstorming process - wish me luck!
