A simple Valentine

Over on Stampin' Dymonz' Scrap Shack this week in the card group, it's about making "quick and simple" cards. Cards that can be made for those emergencies or when the offspring decide that everyone in the class needs a valentine card. That's my theme here as it's that time of year when thoughts of love and romance are in the air.
The inspiration came from over on CASE Study challenges.


A piece of card run through an embossing folder. Some holes punched to thread some twine through then attached to a shaped card base. Run through my big shot again, this time to cut an aperture out.
Behind the aperture, I attached my image. I chose a silhouette stamp from Delicious Doodles - The Lovey-Dovey one. Printed straight onto red card then cut out using a nestie.

ok it looks pink in the pic but it is red really.
Some little red heart gems to finish and it's ready for the recipient.
As I said. quick and easy.

I am going to enter this into a couple of challenges
CASE Study Challenges - Their Inspiration
Crafty Catz - Things with Wings
Patties Creations - Embossing
