Be My SweetHeart Card


I used this week's sketch from the Mojo Monday blog to create this 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card. I love that blog - they always have the best, creative sketches!  I used paper by Echo Park, Be Mine Collection.  Ribbon is by Papertrey Ink.  Pearls from Hobby Lobby.


I cut this heart at 2-3/4" from the Cricut Formal Occasion cartridge.  It's a beautiful, six layered image!  I pop dotted the heart for some dimension.


The stamp "Sweet Heart" is by Emma Aguilar, My Creative Time.  I love her Valentine set called "You Had Me at Chocolate" - check it out HERE!  She also has three other fabulous sets which you can see HERE!


Finally, a strip of paper on the inside finishes off the card!  Be sure and check back tomorrow for a beautiful layout from Melanie!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more Hello Thursday Cricut projects at:

Obsessed with Scrapbooking and
Courtney Lane Designs!

We are also both giving away Emma's stamp sets - don't miss out!
