Emily was the hostess for this week's Stampin'Bs challenge and asked us to make a card using some kind of a banner. This gave me an opportunity to make a Valentine card for my mom's assisted living facility. There are 90 residents who live there, and my sister & I make cards for several holidays throughout the year -- Valentine's Day being one of them.
My daughter gave me a bunch of odd-size envelopes (7 1/2 inches by 4 3/4 inches) that were extra ones from her office's Christmas cards. They were just the right size for this four-pennant card. After running the white panel through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder, I cut the four pennants from a piece of DP from Basic Grey's Green at Heart paper pad. I cut the letters using the Cuttlebug Alphabet Curls and Swirls dies. Using my Xyron X made gluing the back of those letters a snap! The sentiment was a little long for my Word Window punch, so I cut it out and then fed it through the punch to cut the ends. The hearts across the bottom were made with a Martha Stewart border punch. Thanks, Emily, for letting me add one more Valentine to my pile!
