My Sheri Crafts Challenge #103: Valentines

For our challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts, we're asked to "show some love to the ones you love"!  I chose to make a simple Valentine's Day card.

I cut a strip of Martha Stewart Designer Paper (Enchanted Woodland Mat Pad) just slightly smaller than my A2 card and using Spellbinders' Classic Scalloped Hearts, I made a partial die cut into the top of the DP with the lower part of the heart die. I then punched the top edge of that same DP with a Fiskar's scallop punch and attached it to my card's lower edge. Using the reverse side of the same DP remnant, I die cut my scalloped heart and attached it with pop dots into the cut-out of my card's border. The 'Will you be my Valentine?' sentiment (Studio G) was stamped in Memento's Rose Bud ink onto a snippet of cream CS, edged with Worn Lipstick distress ink and cut into an arrow shape. Finishing the card off is a single strip of the same 'mesh' as used in my MSC #100 post here.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit my fellow DT members posts too and then get busy creating a project to share @ My Sheri Crafts that "shows some love to the ones you love"!  ;~)
