Simple Valentine

Aren't these colors cute together? I made this card for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Hope you'll play along!


This card was so unbelievably simple, that it only took a few minutes to assemble! I cut a Baja Breeze mat and added a piece of Welcome Neighbor DSP. (I originally was thinking of something flourishy with hearts, like the background in the inspiration photo, but it took away from the simplicity and cuteness of my heart focal point). I wrapped around some thick Pink Pirouette Grosgrain, then I die cut some shapes - the small scallop circle from the Scallop #2 die and Heart #7. I also punched a 2 3/8" scallop circle. I layered my elements with Glue Dots (to give it a little dimension, but not too much) and added a Whisper White Designer button, threaded with linen thread for the final touch. You can easily add a sentiment to this card, but I kept it simple. Hope you like it!

This card is for sale in my Etsy Shop.

And don't forget that tomorrow is the last day that you can apply for a Cupcake Inspirations Design Team spot. I'd love to have one of my readers as a Sweetie with me, so I hope you'll apply!
