This is a great way to make a simple card for Valentines.  I chose to use those paint chips but you can easily just use different colored pieces of cardstock.

Here is what I used for this project.  You can make substitutions wherever you want to.

  • Paint chips in 5 colors (or colored paper in 5 colors)
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • Pink pen attachment (or just a pen if you have nice penmanship)
  • 5.5 x 4 inch card (or cut out a piece that is 8 x 5.5 inches
  • Mounting Squares - or a glue stick
  • File - Sorry it is a Zip because I can't upload it any other way
Colors I used Darkest to Lightest - Biggest to Smallest Heart
  • Neon Red
  • Italiano Rose
  • Pink Starburst
  • Baby Girl
  • Romantic Pink

Great idea! The paint chips come in so many colors - you could do the same thing with flowers, or birds, or.... simple shapes!
