Quick and Elegant Valentines Card

Hi Sweet Friends!

Today's 5" x 5" card was made using the Cricut Sweethearts cartridge. I just love this cartridge - tons of fun word art and really cute love/wedding images.  I made a cute door hanging last week using this same cartridge HERE.

I cut the heart on page 72 of the Cricut Sweethearts handbook at 3-3/4" and then cut out the shadow at 4" using the Shadow Feature Key. I did that to leave a nice thick border around the edges. The cardstock is by Core'dinations, the shimmery white paper by SEI and the red polka dot and brown swirl paper is from Bo Bunny (from their Christmas line!). Border punch from Fiskars.

This "Love" word art from page 34 was cut at 1-3/4" and then shadowed using the Shadow Feature Key. White pen stitching was done using a Signo Uniball white pen.

I always like to add some finishing touches to the inside - definitely required when your card is chocolate brown!
