Preparing for Valentine's Day

Last year I finally purchased the "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge.  I've seen many wonderful ideas and projects using this cartridge, especially in the Cricut magazine.  I couldn't wait to try using some of the cuts in my own projects.  One of the first creations I came up with was this Valentine's card.
The image was cut at 3.5 inches.  I used just a little silver Stickles to embellish the heart.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the precut card.  I believe the embossing folder is called "Hearts and Swirls".  I adhered everything to the card with some adhesive foam squares.  I like the depth that these raised squares give to the diecuts.  I used a Fiskars punch to create the fancy heart border. I finished the card up with some pretty ribbon from Martha Stewart Crafts.  I think this card will be appropriate for any of my Valentines this year!!  Thanks for viewing!


  1. Super sweet card! I like that it's so simple & so detailed at the same time:)
