Valentine Thank You Cards

Hi friends!! I have received some Valentine gifts from my daycare families and so I am in need of some Thank You cards. I made this simple but cute card for them. I started with some white card stock. I took 8 1/2 x 11" and cut it in half to make 8 1/2 x 5 1/2". When you fold it in half, it fits into the envelopes you can purchase just about anywhere envelopes are sold. Then I took some red cardstock and cut it to 4x 5". I ran the red cardstock into my Cuttlebug using the Heart Blocks embossing folder. Then using my Expression, I cut a scalloped heart out of

Lipstick (pink) paper from Coredinations. I used the Doodlecharms cartridge for the hearts. Both hearts are cut at 3". Then using the Doodlecharms cartridge again, I pushed shift and the scalloped heart to create the inside heart. I cut this using paper from Me & My Big Ideas. (Not sure about the name of it. It isn't printed on the backside.) I then stamped the Thank You using cranberry ink to the same lipstick paper. Cut it out giving just a little tiny border around the edges of the stamped image. I then cut out from white cardstock a rectangle to go under the pink Thank You. I don't measure a whole lot when doing this. I just eye it and go from there. I matted them together and then attached them to the card. I wanted use some cute brads on each side of the Thank You mat but I didn't think there was enough room so I just glued it down. I then took the heart stamp (picked up somewhere a long time ago) and using the cranberry ink, stamped the image inside the card. Voila!! Until next time......
