Valentines Day is only a few days away!

Are you all ready for Valentines Day yet?  I have been so busy with this whole new blog thing. There is so much to learn.  I have so many ideas and projects to share with you I don't even know where to start sometimes.

 Here are a couple cards I made last night to share with you for Valentines day. 

I used the Valentine Cupcake set  Here for the large scallop heart and the arrow heart. I give it 5 stars it's so cute for so many things besides just cupcakes! Definitely a must have set for SCAL. I also used their A2 Laced Edge Card Collection Here  for the scalloped heart border along the bottom. It's So So cute!
What you will need-
Cuttlebug (Or any embossing machine you have to emboss with will work)
Embossing folder
Patterned paper
Plain paper
Glue and hot glue gun (I used a hot glue gun to attach the bow embellishment to the pink heart/red heart)
Ribbon (you can find very cute ribbon at the Dollar tree or even in the dollar bins at Michaels)
    -you can substitute these for punches or even pre-made shapes at your local craft store
Border punch or Border file
Ink for edges to give dimension (I used Fresh Ink in Sugar for my light pink card)
