Valentine's Day Card Drive

Hello Dreamers!
Time for Valentines.  As, you know, each year I make Valentine's for Winter's Card drive: Cards from the Heart.  I have 55 cards ready to go out.  I made about six different designs with multiples of each.  The card for today uses felt die cut hearts.  Here is the group:

I started with white and pink CS.  I die cut the felt with a die and my Big Shot.  The felt was pretty easy to cut.  I did add a light cardboard shim to facilitate the cutting.

The hearts were glued to the cs with Fabri-Tac glue.  I did not add any other embellishments as the cards are going to children in hospitals.  That means no items that can be a choking hazard and no glitter, etc... See Winter's blog for all the card drive guidelines.  Cards must be in by Jan 31, 2016.

On the inside, I stamped sentiments from Sweet N Sassy.  I also signed the insides of the cards with my first name and state.  And a smiley face.  LOL

This is a second version that uses a larger die cut felt heart placed over a paper doily heart.

*********Challenges for my Valentines:
Crafting by Design:use red
Crafting from the Heart: anything goes
Fun cuts: a heart
Cards and More: one layer card
