You are awesome...and sweet...

Today, I'm sharing a couple more Valentine cards with a interactive feature to them - an "Explosion Card Insert." I learned how to do this from several videos on YouTube, so if you just do a quick search there, I know you'll find a good one.

 The card front is a Silhouette Design ID #41320. I thought it would work well for one of my grandsons.

Here's the explosion insert. I think it's just so much fun to open up these normal-looking cards and have the interior unfold in such a dramatic way.

I used various Valentine-themed stamps from a number of stamp sets. It was fun to choose a collection of stamps to create a background.

Here's another card front that was also included in Design ID #41320. Same idea, but this card is for a granddaughter.

And here's the fun interior for this one. I used some coordinating one-sided patterned paper for my explosion insert (stamping on the white side), and you can just see the shadow of the purple plaid on the paper's patterned side in the photo. You really don't see it though, when opening the card IRL.

I will be sharing even more Valentines in the coming days. Even though Valentine's Day is past, I think they might provide some inspiration for other types of cards, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Love the explosion cards. My grandkids would love them too. So I think I will have to do some research on that.
