We’ve been making Valentine’s Cards all week. We made one for a Valentine Day Card exchange (and I took ZERO pictures!) Then we made some for family members (14 in all) and then we made some for local friends that we saw yesterday at a Valentine’s Day Party. The last are my favorite and I wanted to share them with you.
The idea for the card came from Big Sounds by Bari Koral. One of the versus is about acting like a dinosaur. The girls’ favorite part is when she says “Can I get a roar?” They go wild roaring as loudly as they can. On the outside of this card is a dinosaur and the words “Walk Tall.” Inside it says, “and know you are loved. (Can I get a roar?)” We cut out the dinosaur and glued it on with a glue stick. Then we drew a line around it with white glue and added glitter. Shook off the extra glitter and waited, impatiently, for the card to dry.
To get yourself inspired, here’s a clip from Big Sounds:
Can I get a Roar?
You can download the card if you want. Just print one file, turn over the paper and print the other file. It should work to make two cards. Just make sure you cut it the right way or you’ll end up with a top flipping card instead of a side flipping card. (Uh, no, that didn’t happen to me.)
