Stamps: Word Play
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Full Heart XL and 1-3/4" Circle punches
The black base is cut 5-1/2" x 6-1/2" and folded in half, with tabs left at the top and bottom of the back that I folded over and adhered to the inside front. The vanilla strip was cut 2-3/4" wide and 3-1/4" long. Then I adhered the 1/2" strips of Love Letter paper to the top and bottom of the strip and punched out the half heart on the right side before stamping the words. Before adhering the strip to the black cardstock, I punched a half circle out of the right front of the card. I then adhered the strip to the front, lining up the heart cut-out over the circle cut-out. The vanilla pull-out is 3-1/8" x 5-3/8". I simply punched a heart out of the Glimmer Paper and put adhesive on the back left side. Then, with the vanilla piece already inside the card, I fit the left side of the Glimmer heart inside the punched-out half heart on the card front, and pressed down to adhere it to the vanilla pull-out. Sweet! An easy anniversary or valentine card.
Now I'm off to climb under the covers - thank goodness I still have my winter quilt on the bed! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and please remember the REAL reason for Memorial Day.
