I have 2 Valentine cards today.  My daughter gave me some paper doilies for Christmas so when I saw this card on SCS I knew that I wanted to case it.

The base of the card is Kraft (now known as Crumb Cake). The two hearts were punched with the Full Heart punch - one from Blushing Bride and the other from Baja Breeze textured card stock. I sponged Blushing Bride around the edge of the one heart.  The small flower is punched from BB with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and has a pearl in the center.  It was attached with a glue dot. A string of pearls was also attached on the Blushing Bride heart.  The sentiment was stamped in Baja Breeze on Shimmery White paper and a pearl was attached at the end then 2 little snips were made to flag the end. This was taped under the Baja heart. Baja Breeze seam binding was tied around the card and then the hearts were attached with dimensionals. That's pretty much it.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Kraft (Crumb Cake), Blushing Bride, Baja breeze textured, Shimmery White
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: paper doily, Baja Breeze seam binding, pearls
Tools: Full Heart punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, dimensionals, sponge

The second card is also a case. Here's the original.

It's a very clean and simple white on white card.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Real Red. The large heart was punched with the Full Heart punch from Newsprint DSP (now retired) and then I inked around the edge with black. The small heart was punched with the Heart to Heart punch from Real Red. Attached to the small red heart are a rhinestone and a small bow tied with linen thread. I used the fork technique to tie the bow. If you haven't seen this technique it's pretty cool.  You can check it out here. I used the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp (I'm sorry to say is retired) to splotch the background and then attached the hearts with dimensionals.  Thanks for stopping by!
