Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning friends!

I mentioned cutting out several Valentine's back in November, using a new Valentine paper stack and my Pop 'n Cut dies. When I went to make up the Valentine's I also wanted to incorporate some of Karen Burniston's new Pop it Ups dies, so chose the decorator dies that come with the Heart Pivot.

I hand cut the banner from the polka-dot paper, then die cut the heart from it and backed it with white card stock. A silver puffy heart sticker nestled right in there, and I added a Glitter Dot Peel-Off from Elizabeth Craft Designs for some sparkle.  Love those glittery dots ... all the bling of an adhesive backed gem without any of the bulk. You know I like my cards to be mail friendly!

I used another decorator die from the Heart Pivot set to cut the heart shape from the circle label. I added bits of foam tape around the edge, and backed it with pink card stock. Then I added some glitter glue around the edge and 3 more Glitter Dots. I also used the Agatha Edges die to cut the top and bottom edges of the insert.

Two more hearts from the Heart Pivot shape provided me with a place to add a note and sign our names, so I added glitter glue around the edge of that one as well.

It needed a little something above the circle label, so I stamped Happy Valentine's and added a heart fussy cut from that sparkly heart printed paper I've been using so much.

I think it's wonderful that Karen Burniston made sure that her new Pop it Ups line will still work with her older Pop 'n Cuts.
