Hearts for the Valentine's day

Valentine's Day is just a few hours away and one of the many ways you can show your appreciation for someone is with a handmade card. So, let's celebrate the colours of love: red, pink, and white! Below is one of the cards I've made for Valentine's day and can be used for any other occassion. 

I incorporated different shapes of die-cut hearts from various cardstocks and patterned papers. I always wanted to try to make ruffled ribbons but I don't have a sewing machine to do so. So, I thought of doing it without one. There you go, ruffled polka dots ribbon with pink and white ribbons on top to embellish the card. Final touch to the card is the embossed sentiment 'with love'.

This card was made using high quality cardstocks (acid free & lignin free) with Bazzill Embossed White Cardstock - Polka Dot as the background on pink base card.

 Close-up: No-sew ruffled ribbon (polka dots) with pink and white ribbon on top 
and the embossed sentiment

Close-up: different sizes of heart shapes with pop-up hearts

Hope this inspires you! Happy Crafting! :)
