Heart-y Valentines
by Anne Thompson

I have two quick and easy valentines for you today using three dies and red and white cardstocks.

  • Cut the red cardstock at 4 X 5 1/4.
  • Die cut the Dibble Heart Border on an angle, sort of in the center from lower left to upper right.  Save all of the little hearts that cut out for another project.  (I usually tuck them into the envelope where I store the die.)
  • Secure this panel to the front of a side-fold white notecard.
  • Die cut Ribbon Hearts from white cardstock.
  • Secure the Ribbon Hearts to the red panel with a glue dot.
  • Adhere a small patch of Scor-Tape on the back of a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut the Sentimental Be Mine.  This makes sticking on the little letters and tiny heart "dot" really easy.
  • Add the Sentimental Be Mine  just above the Dibble Heart Border.

For this top-fold notecard:

  •  Cut the red cardstock 4 X 5 1/2.

  • Die cut the Dibble Heart Border  near the top edge on the longest side of the panel.

  • Secure this panel to the front of a top-fold white notecard. 
  • Die cut the Ribbon Hearts from white cardstock.
  • Secure the Ribbon Hearts to the red panel with a glue dot.
  • Adhere a small patch of Scor-Tape on the back of a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut the Sentimental Be Mine.
  • Add the Sentimental Be Mine on the bottom left of the red panel. 

Here's a photo of the three dies:

I really like the simplicity of just the two colors.  By anchoring the Ribbon Hearts with a glue dot, the string of hearts is left dangling to cast interesting shadows on the card front.  Remember those little hearts that punched out of the Dibble Heart Border?  I bet they'd look cute scattered about inside this card!  These dies also work perfectly for this month's blog challenge theme of Hearts.  Have you submitted an entry yet?

Happy Crafting!
