Valentine Cards and Challenge #8

Welcome. Today for my Thursday project I am sharing some Valentine cards with you created with the Cricut Explore and cartridges. One thing I like about having the subscription is that even if I do not own a cartridge it is there unless it is license. The subscription is well worth the money.

For this card, I got out the Cuttlebug and embossed with the dotted swiss folder the front of my card and I cut the Heart Border from Mickey and Friends cartridge at 5.5 inches. Just added some ribbon and stamped it with a little stamp in my stash.
This card is one in the subscription and I also believe you can purchase it in digital.  It is called Valentine's Day Card 09.  I just used cardstock for this one.  I like all the detail. I made this card 5 x 7.
This is a fun card for the little ones and I used Sesame St. Elmo and Friends Holiday and cut Elmo at 4 inches.  I went through my scraps and found this piece of Teresa Collins pattern paper and added ribbon and stickles.
From the Valentine Sentiments in Design Space, I made the You're so Sweet and cut it at 4.5 inches.  The pattern paper is from Hobby Lobby. 

  For this card I used the heart ribbon border from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cut at 7 inches and embossed, the double heart which I embossed from Graphically Speaking cut at 2.5 inches and Be Mine from CTMH Artiste cut at 3.75 inches.  I used ribbon and stickles.
This is my layout #8. For this layout I used the Silhouette Cameo and files from the Silhouette Store Girl at Piano cut at 5 inches , key board cut at 12 inches and stars cut at 1.5 inches. For the title I used the BlackOak font and put it together using the offset tool. This is a option I hope the Cricut Explore can get.
