Day 3: Cupid Love...

Happy Feb 3rd! 
I know I'm a little late, but hey! It's Friday!
First I would like to thank the DT at Friday Mashup for picking my Punch Art card HERE as one of their top picks! It was my first challenge with them! Look at my badge!

Ok, on to the LOVE! ;) 
Now, before you start thinking I'm a crazy lady for giving my hubby all these cards, let me assure you! Normally we are very (way too) practical when it comes to holidays like this, but since I've been working on keeping up with my blog, I thought this would give me the perfect opportunity to make a bunch of little cards to let him know how much I do appreciate him and his support in all I do.
Here's the card he got today.

I started with a Naturals White card base, stamped the cupid in Chocolate Chip on some retired Real Red DSP, then inked the edges of the DSP with my Real Red pad. 
The Espresso Baker's Twine is wrapped around 3 times and tied in a bow. 
(It's Cupid! He's gotta have a bow! hehe)

The 'Love You' is stamped with Real Red on Whisper White and punched out using a 1" circle. I added the 'I' with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. The circle of hearts is Chocolate Chip on Real Red card stock, then punched using the Scallop Circle Punch. I punched out an additional scallop circle and layered it behind, for a not-so-scalloped look. 

One more cupid inside, and it's done!
Hope you liked it! Pretty simple today. 
You will notice that the cards I'm making for him are on the simple side, since I had to make them so quickly. He's leaving tomorrow morning for Canada and will be gone most of next week, so I made a stack of cards and have labeled them all according to which days he is to open them.
I know. I'm a dork. But I think it will be fun.
:) More tomorrow!
