Happy Valentines Day!

Hi Blogland, and Happy Valentines Day to you all..
What do you do when you get a call from a friend late in the afternoon the day before Valentines Day asking for a card! Well, obviously if you knew what they were going to ask you would ignore the call I guess! But as I did pick up, the other obvious thing to do was to keep it simple.. or as they say in the "Compare the Market" (Meer Cat) advert on TV "simple"s"....
So that's exactly what I did!I punched out several hearts using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Heart Punch (M42-35004) onto some Gold and Red Embossed card stock..
I had the idea, albeit a very quick idea given the limited notice, of having a hanging heart in an apertureas we had had some new tri fold apertures delivered recently.So I cut off one end of the aperture card so that there would be no backing for the aperture.Then glued the hearts to the outside edge of the aperture,.lining each heart up with the Gold rim of the card.I then took Two hearts and glued them together, placing a piece of clear thread in between them before actually sticking them together.
This was attached under the top and bottom heart at the front so that the tape holding the thread to the card would not been seen, which it would have been if it was adhered to the inside of the card as of course I had cut off the backing page which would have hidden and joining.Once done, I added the sentiment in the spaces in between each heart.. and voila!
Hope you like it and that my mates other half does too.. As it was so quick and simple to do I even had time to make one for the shop, so all in all a good hours work..
Enjoy the rest of your day.. See you soon
