Toaster Valentine Card

Hello everyone!  I can't believe the weekend is flying by at warp speed!  Today I have made another Valentine's card.  This one also has a kitchen theme, but I really wanted to use this sentiment stamp, so this is what "popped" into my brain!  :)  I am going to be entering this into a few challenges, as well as the Getting Cricky Link Up Love Party...  While I was making this card I was listening to Shenandoah's "I Wanna Be Loved Like That", and I was swooning!  I love that song, and I know someday I will be loved like that!  :)  Okay, enough mushy stuff, here's the card....

Getting Cricky Link Up Love Party- Valentine's
Peachy Keen Challenges- use a pocket
Jellypark Challenges- use a pocket
She's a Sassy Lady- Valentine's
Whimsical Designs- anything goes




A2 sized card
From My Kitchen- toaster cut at 4.88", bread cut at 3.47"
Peachy Keen Stamps- Retro Paper Doll Face Assortment
Scrappy Moms Stamps- A Pinch and a Dash
TPC Studio Stamps- Hugs and Kisses ("i love you" on the toast)
Glossy Accents
MS crystal fine glitter
Fuzzy ball ribbon
Foam tape
Prismacolor pencils for the eyes and cheeks

*I had to cut the bread out by hand because I couldn't find a single slice of bread.  So, I cut the bread loaf in my Cricut, and then cut the loaf off leaving just the front of the bread.  I used the actual toaster slot (which I had to widen with my scissors) as the pocket on this card.

Hope you enjoy, and I appreciate that all of you always "pop up" when I need you!  Have a great day!  :)

Like the whimsy toaster card. Especially like the pocket usage & the way the fine glitter makes the toaster push down bar & front look so 3D.
