Sending Love

Today is my first post for the new year for Scrap-Mart! We have a new design team this year and have transitioned our old blog to Facebook! Be sure to find and like Scrap-Mart on Facebook so you can keep up with all the fun! We'll have special coupon codes just for our FB friends, advance notice on sales and perhaps even some prizes along the way!

I know that we are just barely past Christmas but I couldn't wait to start working on some Valentine projects!

I started this card by using the die cutting on the fold technique and my Spellbinders Grand Rectangles. Next I cut and embossed a smaller rectangle layer. Using Spellbinders Classic Scallop and Classic Petal Edgeabilities, I cut and embossed a decorative edge. The edge was covered with some misted seam binding which was tied off in a bow and embellished with some paper flowers. I cut and embossed Spellbinders Scallop Heart Nestabilities and Heart Nestabilities, layered them then topped them off with a button and twine bow. I stamped the sentiment from JustRite's Just Because mini sentiments set then cut and embossed it using the pennant from Spellbinders Lacey Pennants.

To finish it off, I tucked two mini heart pins behind my die cut hearts and added a little xoxo flat back button to the lower right corner. I had lots of fun creating this card and actually used some stuff I've had in my stash for quite some time.

Thanks for stoppin' by today! Join me tomorrow for a peek at my Smashbook!
