Clean and Simple Friday-Valentine

Happy Friday! I'm trying to be more disciplined with my postings and having Clean and Simple Friday is one of my routes to that end!

Here I have created a fun and easy card that really takes just a few tools and could be modified by using any stamped sentiment that you like!

I stamped the "greenery" from Fabulous Florets in Basic Gray about 1/4" from the bottom front of the card. Add a Full Heart punch in Real Red, adhered with 2 Stampin' Dimensionals for a 3-D look.

Use your Two-Way Glue pen to adhere a strip of Real Red Lace Ribbon Border over the stem. I rounded the bottom corners of my card with the Corner Rounder punch.

A close up of my heart "flower" shows my hand-snipped banner with "amour" from the "Artistic Etchings" stamp set. I added a Basic Rhinestone for a bit of glitz.

How do you like it? I am so pleased with how easy this card came together. It would make a sweet Valentine for anyone, oui?

I love your comments, so please leave one! And thank you to all of you who have "pinned" my cards on Pinterest!! I really appreciate it!

So creative. I love how it looks like a flower/bouquet. And this part --> "I added a Basic Rhinestone for a bit of glitz." I think you mean, for a bit of bling!
