Hugs & Kisses Valentine!

Good Monday to you!  Hope you had a great weekend!  The weather here in lower Michigan has been unseasonably warm, which made for a nice few days!  But today we are back to freezing!  I have a Valentine for you today!  In fact, it is one of the Valentines I intend to gift my hubby! Lets get started!
Isn't the red lips ribbon the best?  I love that it is sheer ribbon and creates such a wonderful bow!  I tied the bow with white seam binding and used a bit of the white seam binding for button embellishing the heart die cuts. The designer paper is the Love Letters Collection from BoBunny!  I cut two hearts using Spellbinders Classic Heart Dies. A couple misc buttons from my stash are also embellished with Kaisercraft Adhesive Pearls, a staple in my craft supplies! The paper heart doily is from the dollar store!  

Don't know why my designer paper strip looks orangish here.  It is much more red in real life!  My sentiments for this card are from JustRite's Antique Valentine Tags One. The stamped glitter edged frame on the card front is also from this set! The sentiments are stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink. Now I have share that I did indeed put on lipstick and kiss "Love You" for the card inside.  Admittedly, I have not done that since our college days! Chuckling here as I write this post! I'm curious to see if he will question whether those lipstick lips are stamped or mine!  Time will tell on that one!  

There you have it!  My husband's first Valentine of the season!  All the highlighted products used on this creation are found at The Stamp Simply Store!  Just click on the colored wording and it will take you directly to the items!  Take good care!

Love your card!! At first I wondered if you had "kissed" the ribbon too! Hope your husband loves it! :)

This is a wonderfully fun valentine. I really like the lipstick ribbon and then the kiss inside.
