Be Mine Valentine

Hello Stampers and Card Makers! I have another Valentine's Day card for you that is really cute and exciting!
I had the basic parts of this card cut out and partially put together when I came across a little booklet I got Free in one of my shipments of supplies before Christmas.
The background paper and heart, ribbon band and layered flower are from the Blush 6 X 6 paper pad from My Minds Eye. Around the ribbon band and the cut out heart I outlined them with the Thin Border Dazzles from Hot Off the Press in the silver color. I adhered the band and layered flower to the bottom of the card, and used small foam squares between the layers of the flower to make it dimensional. I couldn't decide where I wanted to put the heart, so I kept turning it and moving it around to see where it looked the best. I added three strips of hot pink polka dot ribbon to the right corner of the card, and a strip of washi tape with multi colored hearts to the bottom of the card. The only place left for the heart was in the top left corner, but it looked so plain there, That is when I found the little white booklet with green stripped border that had an arrow on the cover. I adhered the heart to the book cover and then adhered the book to the front of the card. That was the exact look I wanted, but to my surprise, when I opened the little booklet. . . look what happened!
The little booklet was a heart, folded to look like a mini-book!  What a surprise! I wrote the word LOVE inside with a white marker, but you could write any secret message inside for your friend or loved one.
I hope you liked today's card, and will make one for someone special in your life. Have a great day, and I will see you again tomorrow.

    I really like the washi tape card! Washi tape is quickly becoming one of my new faves! I love the transparent look that it has and all the many colors. Thanks for your great ideas!
