Hugs & Kisses!

It just seems strange making Valentine's Day cards when it's still Christmas time. I use to manage a gift shop and it always seemed strange to be purchasing for Easter around Thanksgiving time. It made the holidays seem a bit off to me.

SO in the spirit of being a bit off, here is a Valentine's Day card I made using the new "Candy Lane" decorative paper and the new "Love You Much" stamp set from Stampin' Up! Oh and the new hearts punch too!!! I really like this punch, it's nice to have 3 hearts on one punch!!

I used Pretty in Pink and Riding hood Red card stock. The ink I used is Black StazOn. I punched out a scallop and taped on the stamped image. I had cut out that image and then took a small punch and punched little holes all around it. Then I stamped the image on a scrap of the Riding hood Red and colored in the edge with a black marker. Then I stamped the image one more time on the decorative paper and I cut out the little heart in the center. I taped them all together and added it to the front of the card. It looked so empty so I punched a bunch of hearts and taped them around the open areas of the card. It could use a bit more bling but I didn't add any because I want to mail it without having to pay the surcharge.

It's a pretty quick and simple card to make. The part that took the longest was to cut around the scallop of the stamped image and that really didn't take all that long to do.

I'm off to do some last minute holiday baking!!! All the gifts are purchased and wrapped and I even brought them over to my moms when I went there to help clean her place for Christmas eve. I just have a bit of baking to do and a little dusting and vacuuming and I can just sit back and enjoy Christmas with all the joys that come along with it!
