Decorative Paper Doing All the Work-Valentine's

Hello Dreamers!
This is my last Valentine's Day Card post.  I have shared all the Valentine's with you.  I have to run out tomorrow to my favorite candy store.  This store has been in business since the 1950's and still makes all their candies and chocolates.   I will pick up some chocolate hearts for a few special someones.  LOL.  Maybe even one for myself.
Today's cards are made with a pretty decorative paper that had four quadrants printed on it with a heart in each.  How easy is that!  Cut and paste them on.  You could check your stash for something similar.  Or  a pretty print cut in the shape of a heart would work too.

Decorative Papers: one with a small print and one with large heart motif (this paper is one I had in my stash for a few years)
CS: reds, wine, pinks
Ink: Real Red - Stampin' Up
Valentine Sentiment stamp-Stampin' Up (retired)
Scallop Circle Punch

  • Make a card base from red CS
  • Layer with decorative paper--I used a paper that coordinates with  the heart motif paper
  • Cut a sheet of 8 x 8 decorative paper into four 4 inch pieces
  • Layer onto a square of red CS
  • Tie ribbon around the smaller square
  • Add to card front

  • Stamp the sentiment with red ink and punch out
  • Add to the card with dimensional adhesive
  • All done!  Very quick ---and that is why I made four!!
