Love Notes

So, I'm definitely not technologically savvy, we know that right (see previous post)?  That's okay; I found some time to craft tonight, I feel much better!  LOL

I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try - one sketch per month; be sure to join the fun as it's almost time for a new sketch!  I have always loved Jen's sketches and this one is another winner!

Nothing fancy, just straightforward stamping but boy was it fun!  I used two sets from Verve - Love Notes and Blue Skies.  I used the notebook paper from Blue Skies stamping it twice, cutting out the 2nd image and mounting with dimensionals over the first.  I also curled a couple of the edges and actually punched out the holes - you know, just like real notebook paper for your binder!  HA!

I also stamped the main heart twice, mounting the 2nd image with dimensionals.  I added some clear embossing powder to the heart; so shiny IRL.

I edged everything in VersaMagic Jumbo Java, added some Chocolate Baker's Twine and called it good.  A great little Valentine's card for a special young lady!
