Valentine {please be mine}

Hi All,

So sorry it has been so long since I've posted.  I've actually had a workshop since then..taken pictures of the cards...but just hadn't gotten them posted :(  I figured since Valentine's Day had come and gone and I actually had a card to share, I better get it up.

How was your Valentine's Day?  Ours was good.  We braved the mall to go see Winter's Tale.  I had started to read the book (all 700 pgs) but couldn't get into it, so I decided to hold out for the movie. So glad I made a great movie, but was a long, overly detailed book.

The card I have for you today is based on a design I saw by Nichole Heady.  She created a very simple banner using baker's twine.

I kept the same design and used the Banner Blast stamps and Banner punch from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I punched a hole on each side of the card mat and tied off the baker's twine.  Prior to adhering the baker's twine, I ironed it to straighten it out. To hold the shape once down, I added a mini glue dot to the center. From there it was easy.  Stamp and punch the banner and add a pop dot to each.  Love the simplicity of this card.  Hope you do too!

During Sale-A-Bration, Banner Blast and the Banner Punch can be earned FREE for every $50 you spend. This is the best time of year to add to your collection and both of these are great additions!  Click on the Shopping Cart in the top right hand corner if you'd like to grow your collection.
