Valentine's Words

This card looks like more work than it is.... It is all very simple stamping and layers, that's all there is! I started out with the 4x4 red dot square of paper and the three squares... and built the card from there-- I will start with a few elements and arrange and re-arrange and rearrange until I find a layout that I like. I love this Martha Lace Edge punch -- the white paper I used is 80# and it punched right through - no problem or raggy edges. Why can't all the border punched work as nice as these? The "Hugs and Kisses" and the bottom Square with the Hearts are popped up with Foam tape. Finished card size is 6x5.
