Punchy Valentine Card - Heart to Heart Punch

This was a fun Valentine to create, using somewhat non-traditional but happy colors. It would be an easy project to get kids involved with. Create a cardstock card base (I used Rich Razzleberry). I've found an easy way to create a card base is to cut an 8.5"x11" sheet of cardstock in half (perpendicular to the long edge), creating two pieces that are each 8.5"x5.5". Then score it in half again to create a card that is 4.25"x5.5".

Next cut the Whisper White cardstock down to 4"x5.25". Punch 1" circles and hearts from Crushed Curry, Dustry Durango, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, and adhere them in a grid-like pattern to the Whisper White cardsock, randomly assigning the colors. I popped up three of the hearts using Stampin' Dimensional foam adhesive, and adhered the rest with my Snail adhesive.
I made loops of ribbon simply cutting about 3" pieces and folding it in half. To get it to stick in half, I used sticky strip between the ribbon, and also used sticky strip to adhere the ribbon between the rich razzleberry card and the whisper white rectangle.
Happy punching!!!
