tiled valentines

i made these cards the other day using some elsie paper that has fun square patterns all over one side, and then red background with white polka dot stripes down the other... i thought it would be perfect to cut apart and piece onto a card--everything was already "matched" so making these was SUPER easy. i could have put all the squares onto one card, and made it into a general purpose type of card, but i decided to stamp out a Valentine's sentiment using my $1 alpha stamps from Michael's, and by using a small acrylic heart i got in a "thank you" sentiment set from Jo-Ann's. i added dimension by using some 3D tape on the circle shape, so it pops a little. :)

anyway, i thought the big button was fun too... so here you go--super quick and easy Valentine's day cards that you could even give to a guy! i think i'll be making more of these to give to some swimmers i'll be visiting around Valentine's day at my alma mater, Grove City College.
