Valentine Card






Good evening everyone! I have a very glittery card for you today. It's hard to tell in the pictures but it IS very sparkley. I went to Michaels today and picked up one of the new heart embossing folders from Sizzix and couldn't wait to use it. I embossed the glitter white backround with it and matted it to a piece of black. I cut the heart from George at 3 inches and then layered it on another one cut at 3.25 inches....one of the challenges you were to use Goegraphically Speaking and I don't own that cart so I saw a heart very similar in the handbook and decided on this image. The stamped sentiment is a $1 stamp that I also picked up from Michaels today. To finish the card I added that really sparkly ribbon and used my I-Rock to put the gems on the heart. I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Paper Veriety- Use pink, black and or white
2. Cooking With The Cricut- Glittermania...use lots of bling and glitter
3. Cartridge Chaos Challenge- Geographically Speaking or similar if you don't have it.
