True Love

Can you believe that we are only a week away from Valentine's Day?  You can defiantly feel the love in the air.  For today's card, I made another very simple card.  Most of it was old school making.......

I used a standard 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock.  Cut it in half length wise (4 1/4 x 11).  Scored length 11" in half.  Your card should open horizontal.  Then I cut another white cardstock to measure 3 3/4 x 5.  With this same cardstock I measured a 1/2" away from each side drawing another rectangle inside the cardstock.  Then I used my paper cutter and cut the lines, giving the cardstock an opening.  I doubled my foam tape and attached it to the main card.

With some Vellum I stamped "True Love" by Studio G in black ink.

I then attached hot red brads to the vellum and rectangle frame.

For the heart I got out my Sweetheart Cricut Cartridge.  On page 40 of the manual, I cut the heart at 2" using the shift/shadow feature.  The paper I used was DCWV "the Christmas & Winter Combo - Shimmer Red.  I single foam taped it to the center of the card.
