You Are Loved

Valentine's Day is just around the corner!  I need to get making cards! 
Actually, I did make this card yesterday with items from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for January which you can see here:

Here is a card I made inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Vicky Papaioannou at Clips-n-Cuts HERE.  I loved the confetti heart die she used (a Simon Says Stamp exclusive) which I don't have so I used a file from the Silhouette Online store and cut it with my Cameo.
I found a coin envelope file at the Silhouette Online store, too which I thought was really cute.  One thing I've learned (a Susan tip) is to get rid of score lines which are cut on the Silhouettes (Cricut does it, too) as I find that when you fold you often get a torn look.  It's because the "score" lines are really perforated and I think the cuts are too deep and go through the entire paper.  I just cut my shape and then score them with a regular manual scorer.  Those of you not into paper crafting (Becky, Niki, Donna) may have no idea what I'm talking about and that's ok! LOL!

But those of you who are into the paper arts...well, you will know what I'm talking about!

The "you" is cut with red cardstock from a metal die from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive which also comes with some great stamps.  I added a few crystal sequins and a heart punched from cardstock.  I also used a red Wink of Stella to go over the heart and the die cut to give it a little non-messy sheen.

The little tickets came with the kit and are made by Fancy Pants.  They are so cute and slid right in the coin envelope! 

I liked this card so much I think I'll make another!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I like this with the coin envelope & tickets. I especially like how you made the heart background. You are right to turn off the score lines. I hide (turn off) the score lines on my Gypsy for cutting on the Cricut.
