Hot Pink Valentine





This card was made for Sweet Stamps - Shades of Pink Challenge
Please visit the Sweet Stamps Blog and enter the challenge for chance to win a $20 shopping spree in the store!! 



Layer a 6 1/4"x 4 1/2" piece of dotted cardstock to a A6 white card, round the top corners with a corner rounder. Die cut hearts from Spring Astro Silver and pink cardstock, layer hearts together and use foam dots to layer to card.  Die cut the scallop border from a 5"x2" piece of textweight paper using border die.  Line up the second cut so that it will form scallops on both of the long edges of the paper.  Layer this to the bottom edge of card so that the scallop hangs slightly over the edge of the card.  Die cut a small heart from pink paper and layer it to a piece of textweight paper, trim around the heart leaving a slight border.  Emboss Be Mine to heart using embossing ink and white embossing powder, heat set. Punch a hole near top of the small pink heart and attach an eyelet to it.  Weave the ribbon through one of the openings in the large heart and thread both ends through the eyelet tying a knot in the back.
