Happy Valentine's Day -

Hello Friends -
I hope your day is pink and red and filled with chocolate covered yummies!!

I was so happy with how this card turned out!  It made me smile.

Just a side note.  I realize I photographed the card before I decided to glitter the pink heart.  And all of these cards are long in the mail {LOL!}.  So envision sparkly glitter . . . . I could take a photo of the floor around my stamp space and that will give you the idea!

Second side note . . . corner round the card before using the embossing folder.  One could tear the base if the emboss is too high.

And if I were really going to mass produce this card (more than 12 cards) I would have made it 4" x 4" for a whole lot less paper cutting since I used 12" x 12" sheets.  But I thought of that after I had embossed all of the card bases from 8.5" x 11" cardstock.  Oh well!  I really do love looking at this paper.  And I used the scraps to make tags for the teacher gifts.

Happy Heart Day to you!
