Cheesy Valentine

Okay, inspiration can come from anywhere.  Looking through a cooking magazine one day, I saw an ad that sparked my creativity and knew right away what my daughter's Valentine was going to be.  Here's the ad that caught my eye:
Reiman Publications, Taste of Home, Feb/March 2011, page 11

Like many kids, my daughter would have cheese on her cheese for every meal of the day.  The card sentiment was great, but I knew I could use it much more creatively.  Here's my take:

I attached that cute little mouse with foam tape.  I used my Gypsy to hide one of the holes in the swiss cheese.  I then welded a heart in the spot where the hole had been.

In addition to cheese, she loves sparkles.  Stickles were a definite must-have for the hearts on the inside.
  • Cheese (Create a Critter accessory and shift/accessory) cut at 4"
  • Heart (Create a Critter shift/accessory) cut at 3.71"
  • Mouse (Create a Critter mouse, shadow, layer 1, layer 2, layer 3) cut at 2"
  • Phrase (Create a Critter phrase and shift/phrase) cut at 2"
  • More Than (Cursive 101 welded together) cut at 1"
  • Cheese (Create a Critter phrase placed off the mat and trimmed to delete "say") cut at 6.5" wide
  • Stone Gray Staz On ink
  • Magenta Stickles
  • Cardstock & ribbon from scraps
Have a wonderful evening!  Be back soon with another project.
