Valentines... With A Mean Streak

Let me start this post off by saying that I love my co-workers. 

Seriously. I work with two of the coolest girls in the whole world, April & Sarah. We all work well together, we get each others weird sense of humor and have many inside jokes. 

 That being said, I knew that they would find these Valentine cards that I found on Pinterest just as hilarious as I did. 

Although being the "budgetly creative" person that I am, I knew that I could make them myself. 

So I did!

I used my Silhouette software to design the sayings, just resizing the different lines to the right sizes to make the mean phrases much bigger. 

I used the following phrases: 
i would GO TO HELL and back to see you
I'D KILL to be with YOU
I HATE when YOU are not here with me
YOU'RE NOT just MY FRIEND you're my best friend
without LOVE life STINKS
when YOU'RE not with me A PAIN runs through my heart

I printed out the designs

 Then cut them down with my new paper cutter that I got for Christmas. (Thanks, Mom.) I cut them 5x7 inches to make 5x3.5 inch cards.

I scored them before folding them to make them easier to fold. Yes, you can score paper with a butter knife. (budgetly creative, remember?) 

And that was it. Some of the easiest Valentine cards I've ever made!

Since we're on the subject of being budgetly creative, I was going to make envelopes with my Silhouette machine, since I have several envelope shapes, but then I was walking through Michael's and realized that I could buy one of their little note card packs and just use the cute little pink envelope.

6 envelopes for $1.50. Sounds like a deal to me. 

 I think my co-workers are going to love my snarky little Valentine cards. 

( I know I think they're hilarious!)
