Hi Everyone,

Thank You for joining me on my My Craft Spot VALENTINE INSPIRATION Day!

For my FOURTH project, I used the BRAND NEW "Always & Forever" Stamp Set. I just LOVE how this set is filled with LOVELY ROMANTIC, yet simple phrases that can be used on any LOVE-type card.

I wanted to show you how one of these simple phrases can make your cards stand out.

I based the card on the Viva La Verve January Week1 Sketch.

Again, I replaced the circle with a Heart, but this time from the Cricut Simply Cartridge(pg.31) cut at 1.75" REAL. I added the letters "I" and "U" cut from the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge at 1.25".

I added a small tag from the Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge stamped with the "XOXO""Hugs & Kisses" - phrases from the "Always & Forever" Stamp Set. I tied it around the letter "U" with some "Divine Valentine" Baker's Twine available at My Craft Spot.

I used some of my Home-Made Dimensionals to pop-up the letters and heart in layers.

I distressed the edges and stitched around them - Can you tell I LOVE my new sewing machine?

The inside of the card is also stamped with the "Always & Forever" Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed my FOURTH project for the My Craft Spot VALENTINE INSPIRATION. Please scroll down for more projects.
