Inlaid Heart Valentine

This is a Valentine for our precious 16 year old grandniece.  I CASEd a Jennifer McGuire card (see here).  Since our niece loves pink, my color combo is the same as Jennifer's. This was so easy to make and such fun. I can even see making an anniversary card for my husband using "manly" colors. Here's my card:

If you watch Jennifer's video, you'll know that I have leftover hearts which can make another card.  I cut multiples of the words and glued them together to give depth.  It's hard to see, but they are coated with black WOS, so they sparkle nicely. The tiny sequins finished it off.

By the way, I'm now using my IPhone to take pictures of my cards. The photos are much clearer in my opinion, although I need to get the process down better. Thank you, Brenda, so much for your help. I will probably check with you again for more help. And thank you, Darnell, for your tips, too.  Blog friends are the best!!

    1. PS blog friends are wonderful, Sheila, once my Cuttlebug was dying I thought, put its issues on my blog, and a blogger told me what to do. Six years later it's still going strong.

  9. Is there anything happier than polka dots? Truly! That bright pink polka dot paper with the red and pink hearts and shiny bold sediment make this a perfect Valentine, Sheila! She will love it! And your phone photos are fantastic!! Hugs, Darnell
