last minute valentine inspiration!

Here are a couple of cards I delivered for Valentines Day. The first one has a Red Riding Hood card base, layered with Very Vanilla which I ran through my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I've punched out 4 squares of Love Letter designer paper with a
1 3/8" square punch, then adhered the squares to a larger square of the Red Riding Hood
cardstock measuring 3 1/4" x 3 1/4". The wonderfully glittery heart is punched from the Glimmer paper found in your Occasions mini catalogue p. 7 - the punch is the Full Heart punch - LOVE IT! Pop the heart up with a couple of Dimensionals for extra wow!
For the greeting I chose Be My Valentine, a digital image from My Digital Studio.
I printed out the image several times on Very Vanilla cardstock, and then trimmed out the greeting to use on my cards. Very fun and easy to do!
Last I adhered the greeting on a scrap of Red Riding Hood cardstock again with dimensionals, used my 1/2" circle punch to add interest to the corners,then applied 2 silver brads.
If you don't have these materials on hand, then use my card as a "sketch" and use what you have! Have fun and check back later for the next card......
