I saw this Valentine in the gallery on SCS and decided to CASE it. (I wish I could remember who made it so I could give them credit for the design.) The bottom edge of a piece of Kraft card stock was punched with the scalloped border punch and the paper piercing template was used to punch each scallop and the upper right corner. The sentiment on it was stamped with Soft Suede ink and the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch was punched from a scrap of Real Red cs and glued over the heart in the sentiment. A piece of 1/2" Real Red striped gross grain ribbon was wrapped around the center. Next, SU markers were used to color the rubber on the tic-tac-toe style image from A Happy Heart stamp set. (Be sure to use water based markers for coloring on your stamps so it will wash off.) It was stamped on Whisper White card stock. Then a Real Red marker was used to color the center heart and stamped on a scrap of WW cs, punched out with a 1/2" circle punch, and used to Build a Brad with the kit from SU. The image was mounted on Real Red card stock and adhered to the Kraft cs with Stampin Dimensionals. The card base is also Real Red card stock.
