These adorable little Valentines will be sent out to all of our loved ones this weekend, along with some yummy goodies. They were super simple to make. It was my first time using a Spellbinders die, and I am in love. Their designs are beautiful and also very practical. (I had only one little hiccup with this project. All of the little pieces in the design that were to form the negative space kept sticking in the die. It took forever to pick all of them out with a toothpick between each pass through my machine. Any suggestions?) For the center heart, I just used a stamp, cut around it, and folded the heart in half to give it some dimension. I attached it using DMC floss and a needle and thread. I did punch two holes in both the heart and the background paper before sewing the two together so that the force of the needle through the paper didn’t rip or damage my design. I printed the text on the inside out on my printer, minus the “V” in love. To add some interest, the V is made using two fingerprints…a cute way to let my little guy “help” mommy.
