Welcome to the Virtual Valentine's Day Blog Hop...

I decided to try something totally different for Valentine's Day. I wanted something three dimensional so here is what I came up with.....

I used stencil LL3010. Dry embossed it 4 times. Dusted red ink over the top of each one. Then cut out the center with an exacto knife and the outer edge with scissors. Score down the center of each heart.

I used the nestability classic oval to cut the ovals in the card and matts. Take a piece of embroidery floss or four strands of thread and tape to card front centering over open oval.

Apply double stick tape on the back of the four hearts, fold them in half and attach them to each other over string. Punch out four small hearts and attach to string in the same way inside center of large hearts.

Attach the print and solid matts to the card front. Be careful not to catch any of the hearts under the matts. Hope you like the finished result.



Now its time to "Hop" from blog to blog, be sure to leave some Valentine "love" in the form of comments at each blog you visit. There are more than 19 companies giving away some awesome Valentine blog candy. Taylor Usry's Blog is a place to find out all about these giving companies. So if you want to continue on with a hop to another participants blog, hop over to Taylor's blog for the list. The more blogs you visit and the more comments you leave the more chances you have to win. These opportunities will continue through Thursday at 6:00 PM. Taylor will randomly choose the winners for the prizes. Now, take your time the next few days and enjoy the Hop! Remember you have until 6:00 PM Thursday evening to leave some comments.
