I (Heart) Hearts 5 Minute Valentine

Last night I was at my upline Kristine's house for a meeting.  So fun!  I did a presentation to show my winning card from Leadership, and I was a little bit nervous, but everything went smoothly.  Today I've got a busy day today as well, so I thought what a perfect time to share a super easy, make in under 5 minutes card that everyone can duplicate with whatever they have at home.  I added a few lines of embossing on the bottom of my card with my Big Shot, but if you don't have one then just omit that part.  
I did the rock n roll technique on my heart image, super quick and easy.  Simply ink up your stamp in a light coloured ink, and then roll the edges of your stamp in a darker coloured ink.  Stamp onto cardstock. 

So if you have some cardstock, thread or ribbon, a button, a stamp set and some ink, you can make this style of card in 5 minutes or less at home, I promise!  Here's the supplies I used to make mine:

Stamps: I (Heart) Hearts, Short & Sweet
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride
Paper: Very Vanilla Cardstock
Big Shot: Stripes Embossing Folder (available for FREE when you choose it as your Sale-a-bration item!)
Embellishments: Neutrals Buttons, Linen Thread
I know that life can get crazy, but no matter how busy things get, everyone can find 5 minutes to spare.  I hope I've inspired you to make a card in 5 minutes or less!

Happy Stampin'
