My Heart Is With You Card

I wanted to share a card I made for my husband. He travels for his job at times. My son and I miss him terribly. I try to send a note with him, telling him how much I appreciate his hard work. He does not like to travel and be away from us. Okay crafty friends you might want to sit down for this  but I usually grab a piece of paper from the printer or write the note on an index card! Yes ~ I know that sounds horrible but I never seem to be prepared. So this year one of my goals is to have a stash of cards for him, already to slip in his briefcase!  This card is simple but to the point! I hope you enjoy!

I love my Cricut and Imagine but I am a die girl! I die cut 3 hearts, one red, one black and one white. From the picture you can't see the black one but it is there.I then heat embossed the hearts ( LOVE how this stamp heat embosses), then folded and adhered them together. I added some twine and done! Simple and sweet!

For my card I used;

My Creative Time ~ Stitched Heart Die, 100% Sweetness and Small Talk stamp sets
Paper ~ Papertrey Ink
Zing Embossing powder
Twine ~ The Twinery
Stampin Up ~ Real Red
Memento Ink
