So many valentines

That's what I'm trying to make today! I managed to do a quickie one that fit the SCS sketch challenge for today so I'll do a write-up - hopefully as quickly as I made the card!

The focal image here is a stamp from SU's So Many Sayings. I flipped the sketch in order to use this stamp. I had to partially ink and stamp the image twice to avoid stamping the one that says "missing you" - I used the edge of the paper to line the stamp up and thankfully it worked on the first try! Everything is real red - the dot paper comes from the 6x6 hostess pack and the ribbon is the new striped ribbon that I couldn't wait to use. I taped the ribbon onto the back of the white panel and then used foam tape to attach the stamped panel. With the tape going all the way across it holds down the ribbon without it having to be glued down. I'll stamp Happy Valentine's Day in the inside and call this one done!

TIP OF THE DAY: If you accidentally turn your real red stamp pad upside down while it's still open, and then thinking it's closed, you slide it across your white craft table, use your refill bottle of Stampin' Mist and a paper towel and it cleans up in a jiffy. Ask me how I know...
