Tic Tac Toe Valentine's Day Card with Tic Tacs
Love, Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Tic Tac Toe Card with Tic Tacs

Hello! Today I’m sharing a fun Valentine’s Day Tic Tac Toe card. This card was made using the TicTacToe2Play set from The Stamps of Life. Of course, I had to attach a pack of cherry flavored Tic Tacs to the front of the card. On the back of the card, I used the Dotted Heart dies to add some hearts as well as the Tags2Stamp set to add the To/From stamps. This card measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, however, it doesn’t fold or open. It is a flat card, just like a typical child’s Valentine’s Day card that has only a front and back. Scroll down and you’ll find a complete tutorial with a different variation to the card.

This is the front of the completed card with Tic Tacs attached with twine.

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit - 15 Cards 1 Kit
Card Kit, Flowers, Love, Stamps of Life, Valentine's Day

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit – 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit - 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 card kit was released on December 15 and I just LOVE this kit! I think this has to be my all time favorite one! I’m so excited to share with you the 15 cards that I made with this kit. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called LoveBugs2Stamp  as well as the add-on set, MoreLoveBugs2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the December Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit Club

The December card kit is called the “With Love” collection. The color pallet for this month is Grape, Ocean, Green Apple, Blue Jay, Candy, Cranberry, Guava, Mint Chip, and Powdered Sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets.

The petite paper pad is the With Love Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of love bugs and two sheets of flowers, all of which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the LoveBugs2Stamp dies and MoreLoveBugs2Stamp dies. In total, there are 12 flowers, 8 love bugs, and 12 happy mail die cuts. I love how these die cuts can be used to make quick and easy cards.

The card kit also comes with a With Love word die, heart chipboard embellishments, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set, arrow die, grape flower felt embellishments, glitter epoxy dots, idea card, and a set of envelopes.

As a special bonus, The Stamps of Life is including two freebie die sets in every card kit through December 2020.  My two freebies were the Sampler Dies ($16.41 value) and the Happy Birthday Word Dies ($14.95 value).

More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.
