Quick and fun Valentines with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and MTC

Being I have an abundance of cardstock, patterned paper, and fun stuff to play with, we make our own Valentine's Day cards in this house!  I made a design with Make-the-Cut to draw the Valentine's cards with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder, then cut around them.  I have the Make-the-Cut file for download here...  Valentine's download

You  may need to click on the image to enlarge. 
1.  This shows you are on the draw cut page in MTC
2. On the default layer, click on the eye to close it
3. On the shadow layer make sure the eye is open
Now your images are ready to cut.  Use your blade to cut these hearts out

4. On the default layer click on the eye to open it
5. On the shadow layer click on the eye to close it
Now your images are ready to draw.  Without moving the blade carraige, gently remove the blade and replace it with your choice of color mini gel pen and the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder.  Draw your images. 

Here is what the hearts look like after they have been cut and then drawn.

I also made a mirror layer in MTC, because I'm going to add the heart to the backs of the kids cards so they are not all white. 

Now when the kids get home from school they can glue them together, write their friends' names on the cards, and also stamp hearts, XOXO's and whatever other stamps we can come up with! 

And here is what my kidlets came up with!  My 4 year old did most of the stamping hehe!  We used Samantha's Artsy Heartsy stamp set, you can see it here... Artsy Heartsy  Jack loved how he could put the hearts patterns inside the hearts and kept asking me... "isn't it just beautiful?"  Kids!  hehe
