I hijacked the kid’s valentines this year. I have been wanting to make this style since last February and come hell or high water, this year, it was getting done. While it should have been as easy as 1-2-3-4
1. taking a photo of each child with an outstretched fist,
2. overlaying some font in photoshop
3. printing them off,
4. cutting a little slit above and below the outstretched fist to fit the sucker through
...it just didn’t work out that way.
I really complicated things with my over the top ideas. Since Anthony is really into super heros I thought I would make his card look like a comic strip. Ava’s was a lot simpler because all she wanted was PINK. Despite my constant battles with photoshop, I think that the cards ended up looking super adorable. These cards would be a great idea for so many different occasions.... thank yous, get well soon, sorry (holding a little white flag), and congratulations. I see many many more versions of this card in my future.....I may even let the kids have a little input!
My day is going to be spent showering these two with kisses and hugs, hand delivering valentine's cards, making a cake for Ava's school raffle, receiving gifts (hopefully) and enjoying a MEAL COOKED BY SRI.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day today!
