Saturday Simple!

Welcome blog readers, to my Saturday Simple, where I show you a ten minute card. Today's card was created as a Valentine's Day card but you could substitute the sentiment for something different such as "thinking of you" or "I love you".......

I used the "Hearts Collection Framelits"to cut a heart in the top center of my card front. That's what I love about our framelits, you can position them anywhere you want on your card front!

I used the background stamp "En Francais" and "Not Quite Navy Ink" and stamp the whole inside of the card so that the words peek through the hole create by the heart shape. I used the "Corner Rounder Punch" to the bottom corners of my card.

I then decorated the front by adding a few hearts from the "Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die" and the "Fashionable Heart Embosslits Die". I used "Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Pretty In Pink Cardstocks".

I stamped the sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" in "Poppy Parade Ink" and hand-cut a small banner. Slide it underneath the heart and glue in place. Complete the card by adding one solo "Pearl Jewel!
