Supplies Needed for this project consist of a paper trimmer or scissors, Cardstock (really of your choice) ATG or some type of adhesive, Cricut and Extreme Fonts cartridge, ribbon, Stamps, 3D embelishments. Colors I used: Black Cardstock- Base, Pink Cardstock- layer, Valentines pattern paper, Gray card stock and you will need some kind of machine that will /add texture to your gray layer. Measurements are different for each person. I used a 8 1/2 by 11 piece of Black cardstock and cut it in half. This will give you the opportunity to make two cards from one piece. . This is an easy and quick card to throw together for someone special. Enjoy!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

First you will cut your 8.5 by 11 Black cardstock in half. (This gives you two cards)
Next you will cut a piece of pink card stock for your layered look. (same size as black just cut about a 1/4 of inch off)
Then you will cut a piece of Valentines themed paper at half of the size of the pink layer with 1/4 inch cut off on each side
Then the bottom half you will cut the same size as the pattern paper as for the gray.
Then you will either run your paper through the cuddle bug or through some type of machine that adds texture to the gray part.
Before applying the piece of pattern paper and grey paper you will add ribbon to the middle of the card layer. Just tape the ends to the back. (cheater method) Later, you can go back and add the square knot.
Next just get your cricut out using the Extreme Fonts cartridge (Cricut craft room challenge) and cut out the letters "i" and "u"
Take a heart embelishment or cut out a heart using the cricut to place in between the i and the u.
Finally, glue everything down and add your square knot to the ribbon. Viloa!
