Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  I am back today participating in an Angel Company blog hop hosted by Paperwings!  The theme this time around is Valentine's Day and I have two cards to share with you for this event.



This one is my favorite of the two cards.  I really like how soft and femine it is.  Oh, and the ribbon doesn't hurt either.  That's another find from Hobby Lobby!  This card uses the Angel Company's "I Heart You" set and "Sending a Latte". 



Up next is another valentine's day card but at the very end, I ended up adding a "thank you" sentiment, also included in the "I Heart You" stamp set since I tend to need more thank you cards than anything else.



The background is from the Level A hostess set "Build a Background".  I think I would have liked this card better if I would have used a softer color for the background hearts.  I used a VersaMagic ink pad around the outside of the card to try and soften it up a little.



In the photo above you can see the layers a little more easily.  I used a very thin pop dot to pop up the kraft label because the ribbon wouldn't allow it to lay completely flat.  The large heart is also popped up on pop dots.

And, here is the inside:



I just kept this super simple inside.  I really like the "Thank You" sentiment that is included with this set.



Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the cards.  I'd love to hear what you think!  You can find the supply list at the bottom of this post.
