Since we are quickly approaching Valentine's Day, I thought maybe you could use some Valentine inspiration.  So this week I will be sharing cards with the theme of Happy Valentine's Day!

Let me introduce you to Baxter the Beaver.   He is named after my little Baxter.

When Baxter passed away, I wanted to make a Memory Book for him and that is what started me on this Stampin' Up! journey.  So I thought he deserved to have this cute little beaver named after him.  Baxter the Beaver just wants to share his heart of sticks with you, and my Baxter always shared his heart with me.

Baxter the Beaver said he needed to sit near the pond where he gathered the sticks to make your heart.  His beautiful pond is from the Meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper Collection.  It was die cut with the arched die from Fluffiest Friends.  After he made his Melon Mambo heart, Baxter had lots of leftover sticks so he is sitting on his pile of leftovers.  He said he's going to use them to make some more hearts!

The tree stumps surrounding Baxter were made with the Tree Rings Embossing Folder.  After embossing on Basic White cardstock, a little Crumb Cake ink was added to the stumps with a Sponge Dauber to highlight them.

To make sure the inside of the card didn't feel neglected Baxter said we needed to use some of the pretty surroundings from around his pond to make it pretty.  I thought he had a good idea, so that's what I did.  The sentiments are from the Country Bouquet stamp set.
Baxter said to be sure to tell you that there is a tutorial for his card, so that if you want to make one, you have all the information you need.  Use this link to download a FREE copy.
