In honor of Melissa Davies' cute Valentine Favor today on Create with Connie and Mary, I'm showing off a card that my Cards Class did this month using Hearts a Flutter and That's the Ticket!




LOTS of new products from the Spring mini catalog!

  1. The base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 of Real Red, folded in half.
  2. I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Honeycomb folder.
  3. The scallop heart was cut from the specialty paper in More Amore.
  4. On top, I placed the zig zag heart image from Hearts a Flutter, stamped in Real Red on Whisper White and cut with the framelit and a little pearl added to one side.  I also added a Basic Black "tag"…one of the Hearts a Flutter framelits turned upside down and tied with Crochet Trim and Linen Thread.
  5. The trio of flowers were added with Mini Glue Dots across the bottom (inspired by Elizabeth Price!)
  6. Admit One and Happy Valentine's Day from That's the Ticket were stamped in Black Stazon and Real Red, punched with the TIcket Duo and tucked under the scallop heart.

LOVE it!!!  Don't you?

Great  – I love it.  The embossed background is a great touch.  That black tag is a great pop of color – well, noncolor I guess!  Thanks for sharing this fun valentine with us.
