Last-Minute Valentine Inspiration

Have you finished your Valentine's cards yet?  If you haven't, time is running out!  I finally got around to working on some last weekend.  When we moved last fall, I put my Valentine stamp sets in storage in an effort to "lighten the load."  Fortunately, I have all of my Big Shot dies as well as my punches, so I could still come up with a Valentine's Day card.  I have to say that if I had to give up some of my craft supplies, I would give up my stamps before I would give up my Big Shot and punches (but fortunately I don't think that's going to be necessary).

Here's what I used:


Real Red
     5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
Very Vanilla
     3-3/4x5 Embossed Layer (Before embossing...3-3/4x5-1/4)
     Scrap for Heart (Yes, I meant to turn the polka dots to the other side.)
     Scrap for Flower
Pretty in Pink
     3-3/4x1/2 Strip (Top piece behind patterned paper)
     3-3/4x1-1/4 Strip for Scallop Border
     Scrap for Heart
Patterned Paper (Last Year's)
     3-3/4x3-1/4 Layer


SU! Square Lattice Embossing Folder
SU! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
SU! Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit
SU! Tasteful Trim Bigz Die
Victoria Crochet Trim
Full Heart XL Punch
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
Red Rhinestone
Mini Glue Dots
Stampin' Dimensionals

Have a great weekend!
