Love, Hugs and Kisses

Hi everyone, today is my day to host at the Card A Day Blog and we are continuing the Valentine's Theme.  Today I'm using a stamp set by Inkadinkadoo that has a bunch of mini stamps in them. 

For today's card you will need four different colors of red ink and stamp two different images in each of the colors.  I punched my squares out using a 1 /14" punch, then inked around all the edges with Vintage photo. The kraft cardstock is cut at 4" x 5 1/2", dry embossed, and the edges are also inked.  The red band is cut at 1 1/2" x 4".  I made the bakers twine using two colors of embroidery floss and twisting them together.  I then double wrapped it around my kraft card front and taped it to the back.  Before I attached the button I added the three tags - hug, love, kisses; then added the button to the card.  

I just can't have a blank inside so I had to spruce it up.  I added another piece of kraft cardstock, then white cardstock with the red band at the bottom and another of the stamped images.

Don't forget to enter the Card A Day Blog Challenge this month, you have until January 31st to enter your cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
