Welcome to the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Valentine Blog Hop.

 My holiday project I am sharing today is….a Valentine card!

BTW…My card is a little oversized and measures 4 3/4 x 5 1/2.

The first thing I did was cut out a 4 inch heart with my Cricut.

The next step was to make (6 ) 2 1/4 slits down the center of the hearts

with a Xacto knife approx. 3/4 inches apart.

Then I cut out 4 strips of ivory card stock 5/8″ wide…length doesn’t matter.

Now, the fun part it’s time to weave.

Here I just trimmed off to the size I wanted and put a tiny bit of glue on the

ends to keep them in place.

Here is another view.

The scalloped border was something from Creative Memories that I bet I have had for 8 years.

I added the Ivory victorian border that was cut with my Fiskars cutter.

The sentiment is from Gina K Designs along with the Spellbinders fancy tag.

Added a ribbon and some pop dots and I was done.
