Hello Everyone – my Valentine share today is made for the kids in your life and the Stampin’ Up Awesome Otters Childrens Valentine is one idea.

That cute otter with the outstretched arms was perfect for what I wanted to do! I wanted him in the water peeking out so I had to cut the paper and insert the otter in the opening. The Metallic Mesh ribbon is perfect for adding some sparkle to the water. All it needed was some faux sea glass and a sentiment.

I used the same otter for the inside of the card and envelope. I colored it using Blender Pens and ink on a block. Here is what I did.

The cute otter was colored using a blender pen and an ink pad.  It was so fun to make.  I used the Simply Marbleous pattern paper for the water.  Don't miss checking out the Stampin' Up Awesome Otters Childrens Valentine.
