This month's hop them is LOVE!
I am using Samantha's XO Heart Pocket Card 
her You and Me, Me and You Phrase for my project!

This month I decided to create a card for my Valentine...
For the inside I have a vellum bag that I placed the You and Me, Me and You phrase on along with a couple sequins hearts!  Since this card has the little XO heart that is attached to the card, I am able to sit the vellum bag inside the card and it holds it perfectly! 
Inside the vellum bag I have a photo of the two of us...
and I plan to write a little love note on the dot embossed background.

 Here is my tutorial:
 1.  Cut out the XO Pocket card as it comes.  Then in Silhouette Studio, ungroup the items until you see a box around all the items as shown.
2.  Delete the XO detail pieces and score lines.
3.  Use your "Edit Points" tool to delete and move the lines until your image look similar to this.  This will give us the mats for the XO detail pieces.
4.  Cut out the mat pieces you just created - your cuts should look similar to these.
5.  Adhere the mats inside the card as shown.
6.  Cut a piece of white card stock to mat the inside area, emboss it and ink it if desired, then adhere to the center of the card base as shown.
7.  Place adhesive on the small heart tab and adhere it to the card base.
8.  Your card should look like this now.
9.  Use a utility/craft knife to slice a line in the score section so that you can slide ribbon through it.
10. Slide your ribbon through and tie in a bow.
11. Add a piece of twine around the bow.
12. Next cut the You and Me, Me and You phrase to fit on your vellum bag.  Adhere to the bag and embellish as desired.  Insert your photo.
13. Place the vellum bag in the card, inserting the corner in the heart pocket to hold!
