Valentine Mini


Hi Everyone!
  Welcome to Thursday's Valentine Edition on my blog.  :)  I designed this mini as a fun card to drop in my husband's lunch box.  Although it would also work attached to a Valentine gift, or something fun to put in your kids' back packs before they head out for school.  It was inspired by the cards Erica Cerwin put together for her Sale-a-Bration cards, but I changed it up a bit.
  I used a 3x6 base (folded in half) of Real Red.  I did a 2.75x2.75 layer of the Rose Red polka dot pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper pack.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon around the Rose Red layer and secured it in the back with snail adhesive.  I punched out a piece of Real Red with the Full Heart Punch, and popped it up off the ribbon with a dimensional.  I stamped the sentiment "Love You" from Valentine Defined on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched that out with the Modern Label Punch.  I adhered it to the heart with snail, and that's all there is to it!
  I love the 3x3 cards--who doesn't like to find a little note stashed away somewhere for them to find and know someone is thinking about them.  I hope this has inspired you to make up a little stash of 3x3's for your friends and family!  Tomorrow another glimpse in to my All About Me album.  See you then!

Happy Stampin!
