Create a simple Valentine with the Adler Star Collage in a Cherub Heart Frame - then add a greeting, some sequins - and your card is ready!  Hello - Jean Okimoto here - with a bit of inspiration for our February Challenge.  It's all about clean and simple "love" cards - and with the big day just 12 days away clean and simple is the way to go!  

The Adler Star Collage adds a edgy, faceted look to the classic Cherub Heart.  It's sandwiched between layers of black and red cardstock.  The Rectangle Basics make it easy to cut the perfect layers without any tedious measuring.

Cut a 2.3" x 1.9" Cherub Heart from black cardstock - leave a generous margin of cardstock to create a frame.  Save the negative.  Cut Adler Star Collage from another piece of black cardstock.

Place the Cherub Heart negative over the collage and temporarily tape the layers of cardstock together.  Attach the back of the negative to the sides of the collage.    Cut through both layers with the 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.  

Cut a red cardstock rectangle to fit behind the heart.

Stamp LOVE - from the Smile Clear Stamps Set - on red cardstock with Imagine Crafts Tuxedo Black Memento Luxe.  Emboss it with detail black powder to add a bit of shine and dimension.  Cut it with the 1/3/4" x ¾" Rectangle Basics die. 

Attach everything to a 3-¾" x 7-78" card of textured white cardstock - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add light gold sequins.

Keep it simple - and easily-assembled!  You'll discover that many of the Memory Box dies create the perfect cutouts to frame our delicate collages and add dimension.   Bold colors and shiny accents add the finishing touch.

Big Thanks to everyone from last week's LOVE...Simply Stated class at Impress.  Thanks Ann, Karen and Erin - for helping us find the products we need for great Valentines.  

See you at this weekend's SIMPLY ASIAN class at Impress.  We're making six Asian-inspired cards - one of them features a simple origami bird I created for the class.   

Thanks for stopping by...see you again next week!
