- I wanted to make the stamped image look as close to the envelopes on the patterned paper as possible, so I stamped it with red ink on white cardstock. I then pulled out another seldom-used tool languishing in the stash...the chalk pastels! They worked perfectly to replicate the soft pink background and accent the hearts.
- I cut the edges with postage stamp decorative scissors and layered it on red cardstock for some pop.
- A little baker's twine and a "be mine" stamped in the lower corner and done!
