Anyway...I finished up the last 2 cards for the January swaps I had committed to.
Not having a large heart stamp or template (yet), I used the Mini Round Envelope punch, then cut off 2 of the curved tabs leaving a heart shape! The 2 tabs could also have been folded in making a heart shaped partial envelope. I've done this on a few cards in the past but since I was placing it in the upper corner of the card, I didn't see the need to keep it as an envelope here.

Any theme with Stripes Background
This stamp of flowers is one of my favorites. I used to use Mom's until I found my own : ) I really like the colors and the fine stripes on the paper. You can't tell from the pic but those "dots" between the stripes are really heart shaped! I couldn't pick any one color to highlight here so went with both brights, I don't think they clash too bad. I slightly folded each petal of the punched flowers in half to help them stand out, then topped off the centers with some glitter glue.
