Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day 2022!

To a special person on Valentine's Day 2022. Much love. 

My craft room revamp is almost done, and it's close enough that I could start making cards again. For such a basic card this took longer than I expected to make. I'm out of the groove of card-making I guess. Time for me to jump back in.

I'm not entering this card into any challenges.

Other Materials
card: A7 size, white; white paper suitable for colored pencils; scissors; heat-resistant craft mat; paper trimmer; embossing heat tool; double sided adhesive tape; and acrylic stamping tool

Stamp the inside with clear ink and the "Happy Valentine's Day" saying from the SSS set. Add Red Geranium embossing powder, tap off excess, and heat with heat tool until melted. Stamp the back with the "made just for you" from the MSE! stamp set in Strawberry Ink. On a separate sheet of paper stamp "for someone SWEET" from the heart hedgies set in Bubble Gum Ink, and stamp the flower hedgehog in Antique Linen Ink.

Color in the flowers and hedgehog using colored pencils. Use the paper trimmer to cut the sentiment and scissors to fussy-cut the hedgehog. Adhere the sentiment with pop dots. Add a little double sided adhesive to the top of the hedgehog and pop dots to the rest of the body. Position just over the edge of the sentiment before adhering. Add some heart sticks and an I <3 U. Don't forget to sign your card before giving it to that special someone! (Don't worry, I signed it after taking pictures.)
The finished card!
