Valentine Card Using Sweetheart Paper

I have been wanting to make an Easel card for months!  I keep seeing them everywhere I looked and decided to give it a try.  I have to say that it was so easy - I was surprised.

I went to Splitcoaststampers to get the tutorial on how to make one.  Here's the link if you want to try one yourself:  Easel Card Tutorial.

Here's my first Easel Card:

I used Close to My Heart's Sweetheart Level 2 paper which is on sale for only $3.00 right now!  It's been retired and is only available while supplies last.  Here's the link to my website where you can see all of our products that are on sale right now while supplies last:  MyCTMH.

I used our Mad About You stamp set which was the Stamp of the Month in December of last year for all the images.  I also used our AMAZING Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to make all the cuts!  Since the stamp set coordinates, I didn't have to cut anything out by hand.  

Here's a list of cuts I made using the AP cart:
Small hearts:  p. 26, A6, shift < Heart1 > at 1"
Butterfly:  p. 41, C1, shift < Btterfly1 > at 1"
Banner:  p. 70, E10, Font Layer < Cupcake > at 3/4" and length at 3 3/4" (using the Fit to Length key)

Thanks for looking!
