Valentine’s Day card ideas

Now that Christmas is behind us, it's time to start preparing for the next holiday.  Here's a card I made for a Team Swap we did in December and the theme was preparing for Valentine's Day.  I'll share mine now and then some of the other team members' cards later.

The base of the card is Pretty in Pink — I'm sure that's going to be used a lot in the next couple of months!  I created the left side of the card by using a strip of Rose Red Patterns Designer Series Paper and punching Whisper White card stock with the Eyelet Border Punch.  I layered on top a narrow piece of Chocolate Chip card stock, tied with the Rose Red and Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbons and Chocolate Chip Taffeta.  The circles are cut with the Circle Scissors Plus.  The hearts are from the Love You Much stamp set.  I stamped them in Whisper White Craft ink on Chocolate Chip card stock, then sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat embossed with the Heat Tool.  These darling little hearts line up exactly with the Heart to Heart Punch which made it easy as can be to cut them out.  The two larger ones are attached with Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Curvy Verses, one of my all-time favorite greeting stamp sets.
