A2 Valentine's Day Cards

Good Morning!
Today I am introducing four new A2 cards that are top opening.  Each of these cards are 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and come with their own decorative elements.

I did a quick tutorial with this card to show how you can add 
texture behind the open hearts too:
1.  Cut out a 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" piece of card stock from scrap paper.  Place a double-side adhesive all of the front of the paper so your twine has something to stick to.  I am using 1/2" Scrappy Tape strips and the Solid Maraschino twine.
2.  Tape the twine to the back of the paper then begin wrapping, keeping the twine rows pushed together as you go.  I wrapped five times around the paper then pushed the twine strips together and then did five more and so-on.  It goes really fast.
3.  Your finished wrap should look similar to this!
4.  Adhere the twine wrap behind the smallest heart shape.

I love the texture it gives the card!  
Here is a look at the finished project:





You can find all of these in my store this week!
