Valentine Wishes

I have been spending the last few nights making 3 punch art cards for my husband's work.  He has 2 secretaries and Assistant Principal that I made these fun cards.  This kangaroo, I saw on pinterest this card and Dawn gave the instructions for the punches that she used.  So cute!  The inside reads "Hop to a Happy Valentine's Day".

This card, I also saw on pinterest but there were no instructions for the punches used so I gave it my best college try.  I used nestabilities (second to the largest) circle for the head, nestabilities paisley (second to the largest) for the body, ears, around the eyes - build a blossom punch, arms-large oval punch, 1 inch circle punch for the feet, heart-nestabilities (second to the largest).  The inside read "Giving you a bear hug on Valentine's Day".  Again cute!!

Again, I saw this card on pinterest and there wasn't any instructions for the punches that were used so here is what I used.  Head-SU large oval punch, ears-SU 5 petal flower punch,  body-nestabilities paisley, feet-SU framed corners punch, brown on the face-SU curly label punch, tail-SU wide oval punch. I sponged with chocolate chip ink the body, head and feet.  The eyes and nose were small circle punches and I free handed the nose and whiskers.  The inside sentiment read "Hope your Valentine's is the cat's meow". 

I loved doing these cards for my husband's work especially when I have a theme--punch art animals!!  The sentiments were a little corny but they work!!  Hope everyone is having a great Valentine's Day!  Tomorrow, I will put my husband's card on my blog. Check out below the picture of all the cards together!  Enjoy!
