Papertrey Ink January 2015 Blog Hop Challenge - Hearts

Hello friends.  The monthly blog hop over at Papertrey Ink is all about hearts, and not only making the outside of your card beautiful, but the inside too!  No problem...I definitely had fun with this one! :0)  Since I decided to make this card for my hubby, I went with a red, white, & black theme.  Take a look:


Made a sleeve instead of an envelope to put my card in as I won't need to mail it!


And by making a sleeve instead of an envelope, it makes it easier to just slide the card out without destroying the envelope.  My hubby saves EVERYTHING I make, so this way he won't have to save a ripped envelope! :0)


I used a few different sets to make my card:  Limitless Layers: Hearts, Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches, Heart Squared, Wreath for All Seasons, Big Hugs, & Wet Paint Dies.  (My DSP is scraps left over from my oldest daughters wedding and I'm not totally sure of the manufacturer, but I think it's The Paper Studio) 


The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Doodlie - Do stamp set, and I think it is just perfect for a Valentine card!

  6. Oh Marcia, this is amazing! First I'll start by saying how sweet and loving of your sweetie that he keeps everything. So thoughtful!!! I love that you made a sleeve for your card instead of an envie. Super clever! And thanks for the reminder that we were supposed to do something cute on the inside too. OOPS! I totally forgot! That all being said, your card is a gorgeous creation from the inside out!
