Classic red/black and white Valentine

Good Saturday afternoon all!  Here's a simple kraft/red, black and white Valentine that I made with thees red Valentine doilies that I got at my grocery store yesterday!  Great detail on them, 20 to a pack from Hallmark, also available in white, a real steal of a deal around $2.00.
Anyway, I used PaperTrey Ink's kraft cs and embossed the front with a Sixxix folder, made some borders from MS punches and some polka dot pattern paper, tied a SU kraft seam binding ribbon around all and then added this SU sentiment and positioned a tiny red heart over the flower in "you".  The little bird is also a MS punch and I used a red Copic on the heart and adhered over the polka dot heart on the heart doily.  How simple is that?
Have a great day,
Chriss

  2. Carrie, this is a new? folder that I bought last week at Michael's. There are 3 other smaller folders with it in a "pillowbox" packaging, around $10.00
