BBTB2 - Create a Valentine

Happy Monday!

Another challenge over at BBTB2
has begun!

Create a Valentine!
Yes! Valentine's is upon us - CRAZY!!!

I decided to use Art Philosophy,
one of the Close to My Heart cartridges.
They have a ton of pre-cut cards and I wanted to
try one out, so I chose this heart card.

I cut it at 4 3/4" out of some My Mind's Eye paper,
which I adore!

I decided to use a different paper to fill in the heart
that the card cut out so I could stamp the inside with
a sentiment.

The sentiment also comes from CTMH.

I used the cut out heart on the inside of the card,
didn't want to waste that :)

Then I added twine down the spine of the card.

Super quick and easy!

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2
for this week's Valentine's challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!


  1. What a cute card Emily! I like how you used the cut heart from the front on the inside. I rave about the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. It is my all time favorite cart. I'll have to whip up your design today! Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. I love your valentine card and this cartridge has to be my all time favorite. Nice idea to use the negative cut on the inside!

  3. This is such a nice Valentine card, Emily. Love the polka dots. I too am a huge fan of Art Philosophy. I bet it is my most used cartridge. Though I do love Flower Market too.
