It the Valentines Blog Hop!!!

I know you have all been waiting for the next Blog Hop with my friend Shirley!
And here it is  Yippppie!!!
Special thanks goes out to Terry who designed this awesome Blog Button for the Hop!

Ok down to Business!
I love Valentines Day - ok so I love a lot of holidays but we always need a reason to use Pink and Red right!!  And this holiday takes the cake, all Red and White and Pink all over.

So my first card of the hop will be of course Red, White and Pink!

Not to sure what this fold is called  I call it Z fold. So I started with Real Red cardstock base of 4 1/4x11.  I used the simply scored to score the CS at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2. 
Next I used the movers and shapers and the heart die to create the swinging heart in the center of the first fold.
I stamped WW hearts from Take it to heart.
The next step was to Stamp another heart on WW with one of the larger stamps in Pretty in Pink.  I used the new Framelits Hearts in the Occasions Mini to cut out the heart to fit into the heart shape on the card and decorated it with Dazzling Diamonds!
I used the new Adorning Accents Embossing folder with the hearts to create the small pink embossed image on the small front of the card.
I created the inside Card image with the Letter press for the Big Shot that says love.  I used Versa mark to enhance the letters on the Pretty in Pink Layer prior to running through the Big Shot.
I also used the Blushing Bride Pleated (gorgeous) ribbon to add details.

The heart images were punched with the Triple heart and punched from Red Glitter Paper!!!

Hope you love the card as much as I do and I hope you come play along with the hop.  Head on over to Princess Shirley's Blog for all the details

Glittery Hugs

Love that Movers and Shapers card Kathryn. It's so pretty in pink and red and I love that little touch of ribbon down the side. Great card! Hopefully life will stop whizzing by tonight and I can get one posted too!

Cheers Penny

ahh your card is so cute, it looks really cool with the falling hearts on your page, when I first opened it, it looked like they were part of the card. Thanks for joining the Valentine Blog Hop!!

Oh this is so pretty with all the details which you have included. I really like the embossing with the LOVE letterpress plate and the addition of the glitter (I am addicted to the stuff). TFS and smiles, Elizabeth
