Love is Love...whether for an Anniversary, Valentine's Day or a Wedding....

This card would be perfect for any of those occasions. Best of all, it's super easy to make  Here are some tips:
  1. This card is 'tone on tone' meaning that the base of the card is white and so are the layers. Layering the same color is very striking .... and forgiving!  Try it!
  2. When stamping the hearts begin with the one in the center and then stamp the others on either side. By beginning in the middle, you've almost guaranteed yourself perfect placement.
  3. The small bow is from Baker's Twine. I cut 7", tied a bow then used a glue dot to adhere it to the corner of the words.  
  4. I cut 5 3/4" of ribbon and adhered the raw ends to the back of the embossed layer.
  5. The sentiment has been cut out using the Framelits.  It's held in place by two Dimensionals.
