Valentine's Card

Shhh everyone, I am posting my valentine's card to give my husband.  We have been married for 9 years now and have our two beautiful boys, Tyler (almost 4) and Bryan (one).  We aren't really big celebrators of this holiday, but we do enjoy giving each other a nice card with a personal message inside.  I thought this pull out card and card holder would be perfect for me to write a special note to him.

I didn't have any valentine paper so I decided that I would try to make some with my Cricut Color Inks.  I used my gypsy to fill a sheet of paper with hearts from the Sweethearts cartridge.  In the Gypsy I also modified the original card holder image.  I moved it over to the right to allow room for my "Love" sentiment on the side.  Next, I switched the blade back in and cut the card holder out.  The Gyspy was a great purchase for me and really allows me to be more creative with the Cricut.  There is no way I could have done this without it.  The "Love" sentiment was also from the Sweethearts cartridge and then I layered it on top of pink and read paper that I uses a corner punch on.

My husband doesn't really know what to make of this new hobby, but I hope he can enjoy the card.
