tres valentine

I had an appt this p.m. just down the street from Mike's and I try to always keep a few coupons in my purse JUST IN CASE ... so I stopped by and got this Martha Stewart embossed zigzag border punch today. I'm trying to pick up a punch each month using 40-50% off coupons.

This card's based on Amy's Friday Sketch #46 and Cuttlebug Challenges' Back To Basics challenges. I like its clean simple lines, don't you? Methinks that qualifies it for Sharon's Stamp Simply #71 - Modern Edge challenge. It started as a 4-1/2 x 5-1/2" standard sized card but then I found a 4x4" piece of leftover Rose Red cardstock (I hoard scraps, LOL) so I trimmed the card base down. I'd ordered a DP share from Linda H of When The Rubber Hits The Road blog fame last year (and again, just recently - if you're interested, check her DP shares here ... and tell her SueB sent ya! This time I picked up only the latest DP from the new catty.) and used some for the strip at the bottom of the card and heart punch, then used a bone folder to emboss a line above and below the sentiment.

stamps: studio g's series 26; paper: SU's Rose Red Patterns Designer Series DP, Rose Red and Whisper White cardstocks; ink: StazOn's Jet Black; tools: Martha Stewart's embossed zigzag border punch, bone folder
