Exploring Cricut...Be My Valentine

Happy Monday,

I have a card to share with you for this week's Exploring Cricut.  We were asked to create a project with a Valentine theme.

My card:

I began with Crumb Cake card base, followed by some pretty patterned paper from my stash.  I happened to have Love You a Latte cartridge on my desk, since I was working on some projects, so I decided to use it for this challenge.  I cut the to-go cup and all layers at 4 1/2" - perfect size for an A2 card.  I used Whisper White, Tan, Chocolate Chip and Real Red card stock.  I cut a small tag at 1 1/4" using the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I then placed 2 small hearts using a puncher, and a small red rhinestone to one of the hearts.  To finish it off, I wrapped the lid with Red Baker's Twine and tied it to the tag.

Adding my card to:
The Pink Elephant - Challenge # 237 Happy Valentine's Day
Fussy & Fancy - Challenge #107 "Be My Valentine"

Thanks for taking a peek,
