Valentine's Day Cards

Hi all

I set myself a little challenge to make a couple of valentines day cards without
using black or red :)

I scored the first card blank with single lines to create a frame.

Then I used my mini heart punch. I think this is my absolute favourite punch of the moment, it's so cute! I love the new design punches SU too, they are so much easier to store, which means you can have more of them.... :)

The first card is a simple geometric style, with different coloured hearts arranged using dimensionals straight onto the card base. I used the "now&forever" stamp from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.

For the second, I scored double lines for the frame, then punched lemon and pink hearts and glued them on so they so they were "tumbling" in the frame.

I cut two slices each side of the frame and threaded through some Whisper White Organza ribbon (my absolute favourite!!) and tied a bow in the front

I think it could do with a sentiment at the bottom but I don't have anything linear enough, I might get brave and hand-write something, I doubt it though :)
