I ♥ YOU Valentine!

Here is a No-Stamping Valentine's card I made for a swap consisting of super talented SU Demos! It's not often that I create a card without ever inking a stamp, so this is kind of a big deal;) The clouds, balloon and sentiment are rub-ons called Love Impressions. They are AWESOME! The DSP is the Whisper White pattern (with light gray words) from the Neutrals DSP Stack. All around the DSP, curving with the pink circle, I used a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer to pierce the edges. I work quicker without the guide, so I pierce free hand, using a ruler to keep me in line, but not for spacing. This only took a few seconds. If you're scared of a mistake, I suggest the Guide that comes with the Mat Pack. I use it for brad placement, and when I need a strip of exactly spaced pierces. I lived on the edge for this one;)

Paper, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Real Red cardstock. Pink Pirouette Textured CS, Neutrals DSP, Red Glimmer Paper
Punches: Small Heart, Eyelet Border, Modern Label
Accessories: Love Impressions Rub-Ons, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, SNAIL, Dimensionals

Hope you like it and will visit soon for more!
