Valentine's Card

In these cold and wintery months, I'm finding myself wanting to spend most of my time home curled up under an electric blanket on my couch.  Not very conducive to crafting with paper, stamps, adhesives and so on.  I stumbled on the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog and had one of those "omg this is perfect" moments.  I like simple cards.  Whenever I try to create something with lots of layers and paper piecing, I'm never happy with it.  My love of simple cards and lack of motivation has led me to start using the print and cut function in my Make-the-Cut software. I can design the card on my laptop...under my blankets of course.  Then move to the office to print and cut it.  Just a few quick embellishments later and voila!  A nice, simple card with that touch of homemade flair. 

For this card, I just used a basic heart shape in the software and a standard font found on my computer.  I cutout the love heart so it could be popped out of the card. It adds that special something.  I think this card will be sent to a dear friend of mine.

The Sketch:
