I{heart}U Valentine's Day Card

Hi Everyone,
It's so nice to be back to crafting. It's been months other than a few layouts here and there since I really sat down and played.

Today I have a card to share. I pulled out some supplies from my stash while I waited for a small order I placed at Stampin' Up! and made a cute 5-1/2" Valentine's Day card.

I used Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock as the base for my card, and stenciled it with white embossing paste to create a dot border on the side. It gave it nice texture and made the simple white background of the card base stand out more.

For the main focal point of the card, I used stitched circle dies by MFT and die cut pattern paper by American Crafts and a smaller white circle from the Neenah cardstock. Also from the same pattern paper pack I punched three hearts with coordinating colors and inked the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. To finish it off I added a metal button, a little felt heart I die cut, and some May Arts Twine. The sentiment is stamped with a MFT stamp set and VersaFine Onyx Ink.

Here are the supplies I used to make this card if you are interested in purchasing them for your own collection:
