Fun Valentine's Couple Card

I saw this cute card idea on Lorri's blog, and she was inspired by Valita's post and great video how-to.  I created the heart couple last night with a white scallop envelope, but this morning changed it to a black scallop envelope so the guy's shirt would stand out better.  I brought my stampin' stuff with me this morning to the coffee shop to hang out with my DH while his listened to Leo Laporte's Tech Guy show, and ran across this card design by Denise while looking for ways to finish my card.  When I came home from the coffee shop, I grabbed my Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder so I could emboss the white panel behind the envelope.  I just finished putting it all together.  Looky:

 

Viola, it's done - and I now have three card choices for my stampers on Friday, along with the brag books I shared in a previous post.  YAY!  Now I can get to work on my Sale-A-Bration blog hop projects.  I think I'm going to go simple on those to make my live easier - I love the Clean and Simple Stamping blog card designs and I'm sure I can find four to use for the Thank You Kindly sentiment stamp set that I'll be featuring on my stop of the SAB Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop back by the weekend of January 28 - 30 to see what I came up with.  As always, thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit my blog.

I was wondering (just for a moment) if there was anything that could be done with the dressy girl/boy hearts other than a wedding card, and there you go! Perfect!
