1.  Cut Your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
*2.  Watch the Video below for this step.  Cut your Cherry Cobbler card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet the same size. Peel off the words on the Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Run though your Big Shot using this sandwich:  Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform (all tabs closed), cutting plate, card stock with adhesive side touching cutting plate, Wax Paper, Hexagon Hive Thinlit, and your top cutting plate.  Poke out the hexagons that are cut.  Not all of them will come out-they are not supposed to!  Set aside the hexagon stickers for another project.  Peel off the adhesive backing and adhere to your card front.
3.  Stamp your Banner Blast Hearts in Real Red ink inside each full hexagon.  Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if you want them perfectly placed, or just try to stamp in the center like I did.
4.  Stamp your “Love” and “When I thing of YOU I can’t STOP SMILING” sentiments in Real Red in on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out the “SMILING” sentiment with the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit.  Hand cut your “Love” .  Put Dimensionals on the back of both sentiments.
5.  Cut your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart out with the desired size Heart Framelit.  I used the third one from the center.  Use your Small Heart Punch to punch out your Red Glimmer Paper Heart.  Put Dimensionals on the back of both Hearts.
6.  Position the “LOVE” and Small Red Glimmer Paper Heart on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart.  Adhere in the desired positions with the Dimensionals.  Position your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart and your “Smiling” sentiment in the desired positions on your card front.  Adhere.
7.  You can use some of the Hexagon Stickers you made to decorate the corners inside your card and on the outside of your envelope.  I have not yet tested to see how well they make it through the mail on the outside of an envelope.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

1.  Cut your Rose Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card front at 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Use the Heart Embossing Folder, lining it up with the top edge and then the bottom edge so you have a strip of hearts along the top and bottom.  Adhere to card base with Tombow Glue.
3.  Cut a piece os Rose Red card stock at 2″ x about 4-1/4″.  Punch the top with the Scallop Tag Topper.  Thread your Silver Baker’s Twine through the punched hole. I used 4 pieces of about 6″ long Silver Baker’s Twine.  Thread from the front to the back and pull the ends through the loop you made in the back.
4.  Cut a 1-5/8″ x 2-3/4″ Whisper White card stock for your stamping.  Stamp the desired Crazy Mixed Up Love image in Rose Red ink.  Punch the top with the Scallop Oval Punch by inserting only the top of your card stock through the punch from the outside.  Trim the bottom if necessary.  Place in the desired position on your Rose Red Tag and adhere with either Tombow Glue or SNAIL.  Put Dimensionals on the back of the tag and adhere to your card front at an angle.
5.  Punch two Rose Red Small Hearts and adhere them with a Dimensional in the desired position.
6.  If you want a fancy envelope then you can use the same Heart Embossing Folder to emboss your envelope flap.
7.  Admire your cute Valentine’s Day Card.

Happy Valentine Card Making!
