♥ Here's my heart ♥

This is my favorite card.  Reminds me of Valentines Day.  The card stock looks like chocolate to me.  I got the idea to make this from one of those "how to" books.  The one shown was just a bit different.  I used a pattern for the hearts.  Clipped them out of scraps of paper.  The envelope is made from mulberry paper.   
I didn't know what mulberry paper was at first.  Its thick, made from different fibers.   I actually purchased it from e bay.  

When I'm looking for card stock, I rarely buy the cards already made up with matching envelopes.  Its best and less expensive just to get the value card stock sheets and cut each piece to your liking.

My husband likes to use (and swears by the nice cut) he gets from using the big paper cutter... but I don't like it much.   In a pinch I will resort to using it... but really I eyeball it when it comes to cutting and folding my cards.    To tell you the truth... I have a terrible time lining up paper to cut.   Even with the guidelines there to help.... it doesn't help me at all.  Or doesn't seem to.  ;)  

Slowly I'm adding more content to my blog... I did only start it on the 17th of January.
