This lovely card was created for Valentine's Day, but one could just change the sentiment, and it could be used for an anniversary, wedding, or just to show you care. 

Starting with a 4"x6" Memory and More Basic White Card Base, I decided to use the new Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder, an embossing folder with dies. I embossed a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and cut out the center heart in one pass through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine. I cut a small piece of Small Talk DSP and  adhered it to the back of the embossed piece, making sure that the direction in the paper is followed. Using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive, adhere the Gorgeous Grape piece to the large Memory and More card base. Approximately 18" of Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon is tied around the fold. The sentiment is from the Sweet Conversation Stamp Set and stamped using Gorgeous Grape Ink and embellished with the lovely Pastel  Pearls.
