Always & Forever

Hello My Crafty Friends!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  I have a sweet Valentine card for you today using my E2, A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge and none other than K Andrew's "I Heart You" Stamp set.  In case you missed the blog hop on Friday and haven't had a chance to check out her new stamps, click HERE

My card is a typical A2 sized card.  I used Georgia Pacific black card stock from Wal-Mart as my base.  The pretty heart DIP is from Paper Studio.  I made a rosette by cutting a 2 X 12 inch strip of white card stock.  I used my EK Success Scalloped Scallop boarder punch on one side and left the other side straight.  Using my Martha Stewart score board I scored the strip at every quarter of an inch and then folded it back and forth.  I adhered the ends one on top of the other to the first score line and it forms sort of a circle.  Then you push it down and push it to the center to close the hole.  Add a punched circle to the back to keep it all together.  I fill my hole to glossy accents to help keep it all together.  You can add a second circle to the top of the rosette if you would like for added support.  I only do that if you won't be able to see it, when I am covering it with a button or an image.  I will do a pic tutorial soon if you would like.  i inked the edges of my rosette with SU Rose Regal ink.  I cut my image from A Child's Year Cricut cart at 3 inches using red card stock from Recollections.  I ran it through the cuttlebug folder with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder to give it some texture.  I added a crystal heart right above their hands.  I stamped "Always and Forever" from K Andrew's "I Heart You" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of scrap white card stock.  I cut it down and used my corner chomper to round the corners.  I inked around the edges using the same Regal Red ink.   I repeated the process with a piece of black card stock and placed the white layer on top of the black using square foam adhesive from Recollections purchased at Michael's.  I added two crystal hearts (also purchased at Michael's).
