Still Working on Valentines


I'm still working on filling a box of Valentines for the Cards from the Heart Drive because I'll need to get them mailed within the next week or two to meet the deadline. Click the icon on my sidebar to get all the details if you want to donate some cards to this great cause.
I started with some blushing bride cardstock, and added a panel of die cut hearts dsp that's made by Hampton Arts for KI Memories. It's called Lace Love This. Next I made a tag from light grey cardstock using a SU! scalloped top tag punch, then embossed it with a Sizzix hearts ef. On top of that I added a SU! note tag punch and added a Lil Inker die cut heart which was stamped with a small valentine greeting. The black arrow is from a new SB arrow die set I found just before Christmas at a bargain price, so I treated myself, knowing it would be perfect for the valentines I planned to make. The ribbon was from my stash, and the twine is from Lawn Fawn.

I'll be sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #210 - which is always to use snippets.

I'm also sharing it with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - which is "something new." The arrow I used is new.

Thanks for spending a few minutes of your busy day with me here - it's always nice to see you :)

Oh pretty hearts, both embossed and cut outs. The Blushing Bride paper has such a nice soft sweet look to it. Very pretty card. Enjoy the day.

Lovely card! It's looks very impressive under the grey tag, and love so much the embossing! Your card is delicate but very brilliant!
