This card took about 30 minutes from start to finish. Don't forget to decorate the envelope!

These are items for a first grade Valentine's Day party.
I made the picture frame out of popsicle sticks and used Aleene's Quick Tacky Glue. I kept them straight by lining them up on my craft mat. Let dry, then paint them with any color of acrylic paint. I then attached the picture using adhesive. Next, I cut a piece of ribbon and glued it to the top. Finally, added hearts using SU Heart to Heart trio punch and Candy Lane Designer Series Paper aka DSP.
Next up is HEART Bingo. Click HERE for directions. I placed the numbers on cardstock and since they were so small adhered them to cardstock punched out from SU Scallop Square. I dressed up Kirkland Chocolate Covered Raisin's container to fit the mood using SU-Sizzix Top Note. Not shown is the playing cards with which I stamped them with the trio heart stamp from the Love You Much set.
The last items is the crimped envelope card which was my last post.
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

These are fun cards I will give to my son's teachers! I think I will add a little gift card to note as well!
The tops were fun to use different items with such as Stampin' Up scallop border punch and the eyelet border punch.
I absolutely adore Flerurettes. Those of you who crochet know how much time it takes to make on of them. Now you can buy them in a pack 12 for only 9.95 and I will not tell anyone you didn't make these little gems!
Don't forget you can stamp on pattered paper and cut it out to make a quick, cute and easy embellishment as I did with the large heart. Thanks for looking!

I used Stampin' Up's new Hostess (level 2) stamp set "Echoes of Kindness", stamped the flower stamp in black onto white cardstock, used SU watercolor pencils and aquapen to color it in. Placed this onto Pink Pirouette. The base of the card is Pacific Point and ribbon is Pink Pirouette. Challange yourself to make a "quick" card.
*The NEW Texture plates would add dimension to the Pink Pirouette cardstock*
