A Valentine's fix-it

Forget Christmas - it's on to Valentine's Day! I need to make my Valentines ahead of time this year, since Baby #2 is due the first week of February!

I had an idea in my head and knew what supplies I wanted to use, and this is what I came up with:

Something's missing, isn't it? It just doesn't look....finished. I thought about it, and thought about it, and then BOOM! I knew what it needed. :) It looks so much better now, with only that little ribbon addition, doesn't it?!

Hint - the buttons are sewn onto the card. It makes them stay in place much flatter than when using glue dots!

Stamps: Heart Prints (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (SU); Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz Bitty Dot Basics (PTI)
Accessories: Vintage Buttons (PTI); linen thread (SU); Pinking Hearts border punch (SU); Large Heart Punch (EK Success); Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon (SU); chipboard letters (Target); dimensionals (SU)

It's Your Day

Yep, still using those purple and green scraps that are sitting on my desk!!! :) I can't leave them alone. I think this Rich Razzleberry is my new favorite color - I will be very sad when it's gone.

This card was really easy to put together, since I already had the polka dot strips inked up from last week. That green strip is actually that strip of paper that is left after you use a border punch! The polka dots were already heat embossed from a different card. Yep, I save EVERYTHING.

You also can't tell in the photo, but the whole panel is on dimensionals. I don't have the photography skills to show off that subtle dimension it gives, but it's there. :)

Stamps: Star Prints, Polka Dot Basics II (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Craft White (Stampin' Up!); Versamark
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Old Olive, Kraft (SU)
