Simple Valentine

Here's a simple valentine card that I made using a technique I learned at the SU! Phoenix Regional Seminar I attended last month.

It's a simple monochromatic color scheme using Real Red and Whisper White as the neutral. The background is run through the Big Shot using the SU! Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions folder. The new "technique" was making the lace on the bottom of the card front.
I had seen using paper strips that were punched along the edge with the Eyelet Border punch and then "scrunched" to resemble lace before. However, at the regional seminar, we were shown a simpler way to do it.....use the crimper after punching to make the lace come together easier! The stamp is from the "Love You Much" stamp set (#113756, $25.95), and the saying is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" (#115370, $36.95).

Simple enough to crank out a bunch in no time at all!
