Valentines :)

I love to make Valentines! I was inspired by some samples I saw in a flyer from Archivers (I love that store).
The colors don't seem to look as nice in the picture, but I like how it turned out.

I am also linking to the My Pink Stamper's Blog Hop challenge-what a great hop to follow. All the projects are awesome!

To string the pennants I punched holes with a tiny hole punch meant for brads-it worked great! The string is taped on the back of the craft paper and the tied buttons were added separately.

Recipe for this card:
  • Red 5x7 card
  • The craft paper I use comes from between foam paint brushes that I order in bulk-it's probably not acid-free but it works great for cards
  • I distressed the edges with a Heidi Swap Edge Distresser tool
  • The papers are all scraps I had in my stash
  • The heart is a small EK Success punch
  • Red twine is from Jillibean Soup
  • Red buttons...not sure
  • The stamp is from Anna Griffin(HSN)-clear embossed over Versafine black
  • All inked with Ranger Distress Ink-Vintage Photo
  • Pennants and buttons are pop-dotted
It's been so long since I've crafted was very nice to get my hands dirty again!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
