The majority of my cards and projects are designed to be very quick and easy to make and will need little to no instructions other than dimensions. I have provided a list of products that I commonly use at the bottom.

Punches: Eyelet Border, Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Heart to Heart

Additional materials: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Dimensionals, sponge wedge
Base of card: Pretty in Pink (8 ½” x 5 ½” – folded in ½)
2nd layer: Very Vanilla 3 ½” x 5 ¼” (sponged edges with Melon Mambo)
5” long strips punched from Melon Mambo with the Eyelet Border Punch
- I ran scraps of Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink through the Big shot using the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
- I punched some hearts using the Heart to Heart Punch.
- In the 2 bottom corners, I adhered a long heart (Pretty in Pink), then using a Dimensional, I adhered a Melon Mambo heart on top of the Pretty in Pink going the opposite direction.
- At the top I adhered a Melon Mambo medium heart and attached a Pretty in Pink bow on top.
- For the center:
- I punched a Scallop Oval from Melon Mambo and pierced a hole in each scallop using the Mat Pack and Paper Piercer
- I punched an Oval from Pretty in Pink after stamping “Happy Valentine’s Day” in Melon Mambo. I sponged the edges of the oval with Melon Mambo.
- I adhered the oval to the scallop then using Dimensionals, I attached it to the center of the card.
- I scattered 3 small hearts around
