My Heart Rests With You

As I'm posting this blog, I glanced out my window and what do I see?  More "snow".  However, it is Winter!  So what are we to expect.  I feel we get more snow here in Montana then the East Coast and yet we don't shut the roads down, or the school's or work.  We bundle up, shut up and deal with it.  Yes we get the wind also!!!!  Anyway, hope everyone had a beautiful Valentine's Day.

Sharing another heart card.......

Silhouette # 37992 - 'x o' heart pocket card by Samantha Walker

This is what the card looks like without the pocket (see photo above).  I added several rhinestones.

Here is where your sentiment would go.  The heart in the corner is a pocket where you close the card.  I added some additional white cardstock behind it.

This is the front of the card.  I cut a piece of white cardstock to go behind the heart.  That way my sentiment wouldn't show through.

Have a wonderful Sunday.  Be smart and drive safe in this weather.

Happy Heart Cookie

Only a week before Valentine's Day!  Wow, I can't believe it.  Today, I'm sharing another shape card with you.  I made it slightly a little larger then normal.  I believe it to be a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".  

You will need the following item from Sarah Bailey (#24438 - Happy Heart Cookie)
Base card - red cardstock
Heart - red cardstock
Heart (smaller) - light brown cardstock and inked with Vintage Photo
Cookie (2; 1 without sparkles) - pink cardstock and inked with Pink (Studio G)

The eyes and mouth were cut out from black cardstock, glued and Glossy Accented.  Pink ink from Studio G was used to wipe under eyes using a Q-tip.

I used a very small circle punch to punch several circles out of red and white cardstock.  They were later glued to the back of one of the pink hearts.  Then the second pink heart was attached.  I inked around the entire pink heart with Studio G "pink" and foam taped the back of the heart to the main card.  I took both Studio G glitter glue and stickles "red" to each sprinkle to help accent them.  

This banner is #25123 from Sweet Afton (Banner and Arrow).  I just used the banner and cut it out in white cardstock.  Black inked the banner and stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" from My Craft Spot Always and Forever stamp set.  Foam taped it to the card.

Have a great weekend!!!
