Oh, how I love you...

So I had some time before work this morning...in fact I am on my way out the door in about 20 minutes.  So I thought I would stop in and post this card I made!

A simple one layer card using CAS-ual Fridays Loving Thoughts set.  I took a few pictures to show you how I did it....

First I used this heart and die cut the vellum....


I was able to center the heat perfectly since I could see where it was going....


I used some non-permanent adhesive and then ran my hand over so it would be even more easy to remove from the card.  This way the mask was down tight on my card front.  

I stamped and stamped off all over until I had the heart covered.....
(see all those finger prints?  Thank goodness for the mask or I would have made a mess!)


And then peeled of the mask to this....


Last I added the sentiment right over the top and ran the whole card through the Big Shot with the Linen plate.

I love the fact that masking with a heart can make any non-valentine stamps work for a Valentine card.  

Well, I am off to work!  Have a great day!
