Valentine Swing Card

Yesterday, after spending all day helping Ems learn to sew (more on that at a later date!),  I went down to the stamp room for some much needed rest and relaxation (after a much needed glass of wine--sewing isn't my forte, and TEACHING someone to sew, well, let's just say it was a little less than relaxing.).

I made another swing card.  Card is from Artiste, layers are from Art Philosophy.  Little hearts are from an SU Sizzlits embossing die, and I used an SU border punch.  DP and all CS is also SU.  Stamp is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages.

I embossed the red frame with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Here is the inside.  Hard to see but there are some silver heart brads in the upper and lower right corner--think they came from HL.  I love this old SU Valentine paper--it's just so snazzy.

Today, it being New Year's Day and all, I am going to sit down and do some scrapbooking.  It's so easy to sit down and bang out a card that that is all I have been doing lately, but the whole reason I got into papercrafting in the first place was to scrapbook pix of my beautiful children, so I'm going to try to get more of that done this year.  I'm pretty terrible at keeping resolutions, but at least I'm off to a good start!  Wish me luck!
