I "heart" U - Valentine - Splash Technique

A gingerbread man on a Valentine? You betcha! Here's a fun splash card. You splash the top sugar layer with blush splash and then put three of the big hearts cut out from the heart trio die set and spritz with grapefruit splash. Take off the heart masks and voila! - a pretty background that's ready for a sweet message!

The pennant banner is straight so with a little curve added, you get a pennant across the card in grapefruit petite polka dot and some heart twinkle stickers to cover the bends in the paper.
A gingerbread man in grapefruit holds an "I *heart* U" banner stamped in grapefruit from the Sending My Love stamp set. It's tied to the gingerbread man with blush baker's cording and held in place with a pop dot. Isn't that little man adorable on a Valentine!!  :)
Here's the inside. Simple and sweet!

Take some time and looks at your stamps and dies and see what you have that could be used for other holidays and birthdays and baby cards. You might be surprised at the versatility in your collection!
