Simple Valentine's Day card

I made a few cards that look just like this for Vienna and Lance's teachers. I printed the text from my computer. Made the edge lacey with a border punch. Stamped the heart (SU!) in Whisper White ink (SU!) and embossed it. Added the black and white polka dot sticker border at the bottom which is actually the inside of the card.

I love how the dots around the heart coordinate with the dots on the bottom. I also like the little heart in the word love. Did you catch that? Love subtle touches like that.

I started with pink paper because I'm playing along in the card challenge at a new site for simple cards called "Less is More". I am super excited about this new blog since it's right up my alley!

I am also entering this card in Annabelle's challenge to use polka dots. Lots of great resources to get creativity flowing!

Happy Valentine's Day!
