Valentine’s with SSCC

Today is the first day of the challenge at Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central and our theme is Valentine’s.
I have a special Valentine at my house and that is my hubby of 17 years (next month) and since this is usually the only Valentine I make it has to be special.

Here is my card. For my image I chose brother and sister Edwin & TIlda. I used  Martha Stewart Punches double hearts all around the outside. I used Spellbinders Nested Hearts to place Tilda and Edwin on. The image is a holder to hold the card closed and here is what it looks like opening up. I found the pattern and tutorial for this card at Stampartic.

I added a smaller version on the inside.

I also made an envelope box to place the card in.
