Lacy Heart Smile Card

Hi, it's Holly posting today.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I was in the mood to make a fun and cute card today, and I just pulled out some things and played around.  This is what I came up with.

I started with a kraft card base, 11" x 4.25", and folded the 11" in half to make a regular A2 sized card, 5.5" x 4.25".  I stamped the fun sentiment from Anytime Sentiments (Impression Obsession) near the top of the card with some black ink.  Next, I cut out a white doily from the French Pastry Doily Die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and then cut it in half.  I adhered one half of the doily to the middle of my card.

I pulled out the Doodlebug Sweet Cakes 6x6 paper pad and found a sweet pink gridded paper, cut out a lacy border from the Anastasia border die (Cheery Lynn Designs), and adhered that to the top of the white doily.  With the Sweet Cakes papers already out on my table, I picked five different patterns and die cut Classic Scallop Hearts (Spellbinders) from each of them, and then glued them down on the card in a random fashion.  The last thing I did was wrap some Doodle Twine Sweet Cakes Valentine Assortment bakers twine around the card between the sentiment and the pink border. 

This card can be a Valentine's card, an anniversary card, a general "I Love You" card, or a "Just Because" type of card.  The whimsical font of the sentiment is what inspired me to make this fun and colorful card.  I hope you are inspired to create something fun this week!  :-)
Thanks, Holly!  Cute card!!
