Non Stamped Valentine Card

I had this cartridge in my had when it was on sale at Michaels right before the holidays and then decided I didn't need it. Then my girlfriend came over with it last night so that we could play with my "new" cricut machine the "Expression". Well, what a diifference from the old one to the new one. It's like the "Cadillac" edition. As soon as I saw the Valentine Silouette, this immediately came to mind, and I whipped it out in no time flat. I cut it at 3 1/2" three times and used dimentionals to assemble it. I then used the Martha Stewart fench punch and cut that out twice again using dimentionals. For the embossing, I used the Stampin Up Sizzix embossing folder Elegant Bouquet, and for the hearts, I used the Stampin Up Heart Punch and then embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder.

Here is the side view to show the dimentions.

Needless to say, I immediately went on line and ordered my own cartridge, and I'm glad I waited because it was cheaper on line from "Oh My Crafts" especially after you apply the 20% coupon code. If you decide to check it out the coupon code is NEWYEAR20.
