Silhouette Valentines-don't forget to use the negative!

Here are a few more cute and quick Valentines I made with files from the Silhouette Store.

The actual cut file is the black silhouette on the card base on the left. When I saw all the black pieces stuck to the mat, I thought I would make a 'negative card' too. No sense wasting pieces!!  I added the original piece onto  the second card base and then just added glue to the empty spaces and filled in with the black pieces. I carefully pulled up the main cut piece once in awhile to make sure it stayed free, using a little tape on the side edge (acting like a hinge)so I could lift it up and still keep it in the same place.

Just think-I almost threw these pieces away!

I added a cute little xoxo sentiment and there you are-Quick and Easy!

That's so fun! And two cards for the price of one. I actually think I like the negative side one better.
