Grandma's Valentine



I saw this really cool Fancy Fold over at Dawn's blog, and wanted to try it. I still had my Berry Bliss handy from a few days ago, so I grabbed it. There also was a challenge at SCS a short while ago, using these cute heart pockets....so I combined the two.

I was trying to incorporate a photo into the Valentine's card for my Mom. I decided to print the photo, and use my Heart-shaped Nestabilities to cut the shape. I doesn't match perfectly with the heart pocket, but I'm thinking she'll probably keep the picture somewhere separate anyhow.
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Stamps: All Year Cheer III
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Berry Bliss
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Heart Nestabilites, D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, Big Shot, Purely Pomegranate stitched ribbon, Prima Heart, Glue Dots, Photograph
