Happy Heart day!

I heard that on the radio today. Not "I love you", it was "I heart you." I think it is dorky to talk in text. I mean, how lazy are we really? Don't answer that!
Here are some fun Valentine cards I made this week for people I LOVE. :o) I used an idea I got at my leadership Shoebox swap. It was so cute and easy! We did this card at my stamp a stack last month too. It was quite the hit. When I decided to finally sit down and make my Valentine cards, I pulled out all the supplies and realized that I didn't buy the stamps and punch! I know! We had used Sheri's stuff! Oh well....opportunity for creativity, right?

Check out how I modified the card to what I had on hand. Not too shabby! I Stamped the heart from Always with Versamark and embossed it with white and then carefully lined up the new Jumbo heart punch inside the always heart and punched it out. It isn't the same size or even shape, but if you are careful, you can get a cool heart out of it. For both cards, the hearts are stamped and embossed on red cardstock and then punched out. I punched the same hearts out of the front of the card and then glued the punched hearts through the holes in the front of the card so, you can see them from the front of the card and also when you open the card.
yay for plan that comes together! I added a strip of DSP to the left side to fill it in a bit, but other than that, it is almost the same card!
Have a "lovely" day! I hope to spend some time with my sweetie!
