Swap Valentine

I will be on my way to this year's Stampin-Up Leadership Event in Phoenix, Arizona. Here is the card I am offering at a special event swap. It is using the new DSP from the Occasions Mini (which can be ordered NOW!) Not sure why the card is not showing up as Very Vanilla (it is!). I only had to make 43 of these puppies.

Here's a closer view of the glitter paper with a printed underside.

Inside the card, I added a punched heart:

Here are all the pieces needed to make this card:
(1) 5-1/2" x 801/2" Very Vanilla CS, score at 4-1/2"
(2) 5-1/2" x 1" Pretty in Pink CS
(1) 5-1/2" x 2-3/4" Sending Love DSP
(1) cut 6-1/2" long Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon + (1) 2-1/4" long cut Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
(1) Punched Scallop Circle in Pretty in Pink
(1) Punched Full Heart - put through the Big Shot SU Exclusive Textured Impressions Dot Folder
(1) Medium Punched Heart in Pretty in Pink using the Heart to Heart Punch - with embossed dots
(1) Small and Large heart in Real Red using the Heart to Heart Punch
Using the 6-1/2" long ribbon: wrap around Pretty in Pink piece. The 2-1/2" long ribbon is a single knot. Trim ends.

Here's a front and underside view:

Position the Pretty in Pink piece 1-1/4" from the card bottom:

Using the new Punch: (Scallop Trim Boarder): punch the edge as shown:

Score 1-3/4" as shown (see the pink arrows). After scoring, fold up to reveal the printed underside. Add adhesive to keep the folded part closed.
Position on top of the card as shown, Pop the Full Heart and Scallop Circle with dimensional and place on card.
