Early Start on Valentines!

Well, I got the set Sealed with a Kiss, as well as the new scalloped border and square punch from SU, and wanted to see what I could do.

I used the XOXO stamp to create a background on natural confetti paper by stamping it over and over again in real red ink. I then stamped the LOVE square onto the natural confetti paper and using my new papersnips (highly recommends them!) cut the image out very close to the border.

Attached the stamped background to the top of the card base, and then decided to use some chocolate chip CS with a scalloped edge for the bottom part with some read red grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot around it.

I then layered the cut out image onto some real red CS that I had punched with the scalloped square punch and attached it to the card front with pop dots so it has a bit of 3D effect to it.

Overall, a very nice Valentines card!

Can you tell that I am procrastinating with the Christmas Cards :)
