Cupid is Stupid

Hurray for the weekends and being able to just sit in my craft room and play away.  I've been able to get several cards and projects completed already.  But before I take a brief break to get some housework done I wanted to share my first ever ANTI- Valentine with you.
 
Jaded Blossom recently had their January stamp release party and when I saw the Cupid is Stupid stamp set I couldn't resist.  I wasn't sure what I'd actually do with it.  All I knew was that I had to have it and so I made the purchase.
 
After several days of trying to decide what to do while reading and re-reading the sentiments I finally got the idea to create a card that looked like someone was targeting in to shoot cupid.  Then I remembered this angry cupid file over at SVG Cutting Files and thought he was perfect.  After all what cupid would be happy to see that someone has a target on him?
 
Where did the target come from?  That's from the Cricut cartridge Outdoor Man.
 
Oh and here's what I decided to do for the inside of my card.  After stamping the sentiment and heart on the inside I realized that I smeared a small spot of the ink so I went back and stamped the pins individually, cut them out and layered them back on.  I then took a bit of red Smooch and painted the heads of the pins.
 
And there you have it.  My first - but certainly not the last - of my Anti-Valentine's Day Cards.
Now I'm off to go enter this card into the Anything for Your Valentine challenge at SVG Cutting Files.  Challenge ends February 14th.
