XOXO Card

Today I have my first Valentine project to share that I made for several different challenges. This card was created with the April Showers cartridge for the banner and Elegant Edges for the scalloped tag.
The scalloped border is punched in two different colors with a Martha Stewart border punch.  The 3 heart cluster is created from a punch, glued together and embellished with Stickles on the center heart. I stamped XOXO on the banner from the Scrappy Cat Polka Dot Party stamp set.  
The mat for the scalloped oval is embossed with the Love Language Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I embellished my card with off-white embroidery floss, prima flowers, a little bling, brads and my white gel pen.  I also used some pop dots for dimension.
