Valentine Note Card Set

Sherrie here again, {of course!} to share another Valentine project with you.
I love to make these little sets of note cards because they are a perfect size for little notes, and because the size is perfect for a little repetition without getting burned out of creativity. I do not like to make the same card over and over again, but these sets are fun for me.
Each note card base measures 3-1/2 by 4-1/4 inches. You can cut all three from a single sheet of 8-1/2 by 11 inch cardstock. And, these cuties fit inside A1 or 4bar envelopes, which are mailable! That right there makes them worthwhile to create!

The stamps are SU's 'Love You Much' stamp set, and the cardstocks, dsp's, and ink's are SU also. The ribbon is from my abundant stash, the buttons from WalMart, and the brads are from Pink Hedgehog Crafts on Ebay. The doily punch is Martha Stewart.
The hearts are stamped and heat embossed with clear powder, for shine and texture. I hand stitched the buttons to each heart before adhering them to the card fronts with pop up foam dots from Micheals.

I think red is one of my most favorite colors. It appeals to all of my senses. Red tulips and petunias are my favorite flowers. Cherry Lifesavers, ripe tomatoes, red satin ribbon, and of course, Red Valentine hearts! I love it when my husband and boys wear red shirts, they just look fantastic to me! My Tahoe is red! I'd probably paint my house red if my hubby would let me. But he won't!
How about you? Don't you think red is supreme?
