Valentine Card

For a recent card swap I made a Valentines card.

I started with white card stock, and folded it to make a 4x6 card. I cut a 1.5x1.5 inch square from the front portion of the card.
I then cut red paper to be 3.5" by 5.5" and I cut a 2x2 inch square out of that.
Next, I cut out a 2x2 square of pink paper, and cut out the center 1.5"x1.5".
Lots of cutting squares. Here's what the pieces looked like.

I then cut 16 gauge wire and bent it slightly. I glued one end of the wire to between two small hearts that I had cut from the same red paper as above.

Next, I glued the other end of the wire to the white paper, right above the cut out box. On top of that I layered the pink square of paper, and then the red layer of paper.

I then stamped/embossed the words 'Be My Valentine' on the front. Voila!
