Card stock: American Crafts; Core'dinations
Embossing: Cuttlebug hearts folder
Hearts: Cuttlebug die. The hearts are actually recessed. I punched a 2" circle in the white card stock after I had embossed it. I used pop up dots between the red layer and the white embossed layer. I cut my hearts and placed them on the red layer. I then used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut a 2 1/2" frame (page 45 of the handbook), and it fit over the 2" circle window perfectly. I used pop up dots under the frame.
The sentiment was computer generated and punched using a Stampin' Up punch, which I layered on a McGill punched label. I added a heart shaped brad to the edge.
I also used three punched hearts for a little added touch.
The inside says: "We were meant to be together like peanut butter and jelly, biscuits and gravy, socks and shoes, and cake and ice cream. Happy Valentine's Day With My Love." (I guess I have an obsession with food. LOL.)
I am entering this card into challenge no. 72 over at Cooking with Cricut. We are to make a grown up Valentine using black and a brad. Check and check! Here is a link to the challenge.
