Galentine's Day Cards 2017

February marked that time of year again! Galentine's Day was (unofficially) officially the day before Valentine's Day, when friends celebrated female friendship (& hopefully got brunch). 

Inspired by the "Parks & Rec" holiday, my friends & I try to exchange hugs & Galentines in the month of February. This year, I decided to cut up a floral tissue box that I'd been moved to save.

Voila! Floral accents for my cards:

I glued the flower emblems to the front of my card stock cards, wrote in my captions & message, & then trimmed the edges to be more even.

Then I put the cards between protective cardboard & added professional weights (coasters & glue bottle) on top, to flatten the cards while the glue finished drying.

The finished cards:

For the inscription on the back of my cards, this year I though that the "Parks & Rec" Pawnee Goddesses' Pledge (the show's answer to the Girl Scouts) would be both entertaining & inspiring. 

A couple Galentines that I got from friends:

Hope you had a nice day (or week) with friends, wherever you were!

To check out previous years' Galentines, see my 2016 Space-Themed Patchwork Cards or 2015 Initials Cards, as well as my friend's Mixed Media Cards.

"What's Galentine's Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I...just come and kick it breakfast-style.  Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair...minus the angst...plus frittatas." --Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation
