Freshly Made Sketches 168 Loves Color Throwdown 324

With Valentine's Day just over a month away and because it is just to frigid outside for me to want to even go any where, I'm almost done with the cards I plan to send to family and friends.  How's that for being ahead of the game!  This is a very clean and simple design and while you can see it in the photo, the white heart is raised to give just a bit of dimension to the card.  I love that new Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack!  Check it out in the new 2015 Occasions Catalog.


Stamp Set:  Delightful Dozen (retired); Ink:  Real Red; Card Stock:  Red Glimmer Paper, Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools: Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment. I usually follow the shapes on the sketch but needed to get some Valentine cards made so this was a great way to incorporate some hearts in the design.
