Simply Sent Valentine

Whew!  The end of another busy work week.  Even though I had Monday off, it seems like this week was 6 days long instead of 4.  Shortened weeks get the kids out of sorts and sometimes they can be worse than a 5 day week.  All I can say is TGIF!  Unfortunately, the weekend is only 2 days. :(

The month of January is almost over and I thought I'd get a jump on my Valentine Cards.  This is a simple one, and one I think I will do at this month's club.  It is easy to prep for.  I used the second of the two designs that come in the Designer Cuts Cards and Envelopes Set (125414) in the Occasions Mini.  I love these cards.  All of the work is practically done for you.  I added a rosette that I made using a 1/2" x 12" strip of News Print Specialty dsp (121878).  If you aren't sure how to make these flowers, the March issue of Card Maker Magazine has an excellent tutorial.  I scored my strip of dsp every 1/4 inch and adhered it to the Blushing Bride punched out circle using a glue gun.  I also adhered a piece of Blushing Bride card stock to the inside of the card so that you could see it through the pre-cut heart.  I bannered two 1/2" wide strips of the News Print Specialty dsp and adhered them to the underside of the rosette using a glue dot.  The entire thing is attached to the card using a dimensional.  The sentiment comes from P.S. I Love You stamp set also in the Occasions Mini (125460/wood or 125462/clear).

Hope you like it!  Until next time...

Happy Stamping!
