Valentines card/envelope : Grateful Greetings/ Love Impressions DSP

Good afternoon ! Yesterday we had a little bit of snow here in Westren Newfoundland, but after a day of drizzle and unseasonably warm weather , the snow is nearly all gone!! My son may have to wait for next year to try out his new tobaggon! I'm not complaining.... my friends and family in Edmonton have been hit with one of the worst snowstorms in 30 years!!!
I thought today I would play around with some ideas for my next workshop. Since Febraury is really just a few short weeks away ( reall, where has the time gone????), I decided to make a Valentine card. I must confess, I never give out Valentine cards, not even to my DH!!!! I just like all the pretty papers and the Glimmer paper from the mini is my fav!
So, here's my card and matching envelope.....

Here's what I used to make this card:
Grateful Greetings stamp set
Love Letters DSP/ Glimmer paper
Real Red/ Basic Grey/ Whisper White cardstock
Antique brads/ Rhinestone brad( non SU)
Heart / Designer Label/ small Oval punches
Real Red 1 1/4" striped ribbon
Framed Tulips embossing folder

I originally made this card with a larger heart ( diecut made with my Cricut):

Maybe my DH will get a card from me after all!! LOL

Happy Stamping!
