Love Ya card

Have you read the Path of Positivity's post this week? I was deeply moved to see how the writer saw the many ways her hubby expressed love without even speaking the words. I usually write my own long notes inside cards that I give others. After Valentine's Day I decided it's OK to keep making cards to let others know how much I appreciate and love them.  Today I've been playing with retired papers. Seeing the growing collection always reminds me that I need to make a lot more cards, gifts, and layouts if I'm to whittle down the collections before I die!! I made these cards using CTMH Sweetheart papers (and very old stamps that I also love to horde) for the challenge at Heart to Heart, "Falling in Love."

I heat embossed the sentiment using Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. I love the XOXO ribbon but never know how to keep it "upright" after tying. If you have a trick, let me know!

While I had the measurements in mind, I decided to make another one. This one is similar with a different paper from the same pack and a different stamp set. I'm writing a message in this one for hubby!

You can see the similarities and differences in this photo.

Thanks for visiting.

I'm sharing this first card with the following challenges:
A Snowflake's Promise #37 - winter theme/Valentine option
Heart 2 Heart  challenge - Falling in Love
Path of Positivity #46 - Expressions of Love
