For my first card, I started by sponging different colors of pink inks onto white card stock. I die cut the ornate heart, the center heart and all of the smaller hearts out of it. The Valentine greeting was stamped onto the center heart and to help set it apart a little, I added a die cut ribbon tag underneath it. The white panel was embossed w/ little hearts and the leftover rectangle (used for all the heart die cuts) was used to back the embossed panel. One of the beautiful ornate borders was used for the white lacy strip beneath the hearts.

On my second card, I used the beautiful Heart & Soul set. I love the patriotic theme to this set and since it has a bit of distressed look to it, I used papers that seemed to carry that over. I used a combination of inks on the image before stamping it on ivory and die cutting with the matching die.  The smaller center heart was done the same way. The greeting was stamped with the same combination and die cut with a pennant die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
