A Valentine Card For My Sweetie with Chris

I just love Spellbinders. Mix and match or use them alone, they make simple cards look so elegant. This is a 4.25x5.5 top folded card. I started with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and ran through a 4.25x5.5 piece of white cardstock. Using my ATG, I adhered it to the front of the card. I then took my Spellbinders Borderabilities edge (Lotus Border Petites), lined it up along the bottom edge of the card, and used some removable tape to hold it in place while I ran it through my Big Shot. Since it was a double thickness of paper, I ran it back and forth a couple of times.
I then took my Spellbinders Shapeabilities (Fancy Tags Two) and cut a piece of red vellum and very carefully used my Tim Holtz Craft Pick to remove it from the die. I glued this to the front of the card with my zig pen (I knew I would be covering it, so I wasn’t worried about seeing glue streaks). Next I used my stylus tool to rub on a Valentine’s Be Mine that I had in my stash and added my Nestabling that I’ve been hoarding, to the label.
I wish I had bought the Imaginisce I-Magicut Ribbon Cutter when Kim first offered it because, of course, the ribbon I choose to back up my border frayed. Guess what is now on my wishlist with Kim!
Hope you and your loves have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
