First Valentine's Day Card of the Year

A new card two days in a row...I'm on a roll!  I'm really glad to finally be able to get back into the swing of things.  Today's card is my first Valentine's Day card of 2012.  I also followed the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2012, too.  It's MOJO222.  I think it's a great sketch.

I got to use some new Occasions Mini items on this card, as well.  I had a hard time getting the picture to show the true colors I used, and this was the best I could do.  I think the card looks better in real life. 

The first Occasions Mini item I used is the P.S. I Love You stamp set (p. 8).  It's a set of 15 stamps, so there are a lot of different looks you can get with it.  It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the chocolate on the strawberry is shiny.  I put Crystal Effects on top of the "chocolate".  I really like the look.  The heart was punched out with the Full Heart Punch (p. 210 in big catty).  The cupid and chocolate strawberry were cut out free-hand.  I also popped the chocolate-covered strawberry up with a Stampin' Dimensional (p. 206 in big catty).

The designer paper I used is the same as the card I made yesterday...Twitterpated DSP (p. 13).  I used the Adorning Accents Impressions Embossing Folders (p. 7) to make the Riding Hood Red hearts strip.  The last Occasions Mini items I used are the buttons on the card...Twitterpated Designer Buttons (p. 12).  I attached them to the card with Mini Glue Dots (p. 206 in big catty).
