Playing Along with the Valentine Challenge

BeMineCardOf course I had to play along with the first Mail It Monday card challenge. And since my husband and I have deemed February as our no-spend month, this cute little creation just might go to him for Valentine’s Day.

I used black cardstock and some heart-themed paper that I’ve had in my stash for a few years to create this quick card. I also used a border punch on another scrap piece of paper, and inked everything in black. The red shape and the “Be Mine” stamp are both from Sizzix’s Framelits — I picked them up at Archiver’s going-out-of-business sale the other day. Score! I added a coordinating heart brad and raised all the red with 3D glue dots.

This Valentine challenge card was really easy, but the simple pops of deep red really pull in the eye. Oh, I also lined the card with white paper, so that I will have a place to write all my sweet nothings to my husband.
