Valentine for Granddaughter

I'm going to post this real fast, because I have to finish the card for my grandson and get these in the mail! (Running late, as usual, lol.) I'll post all the details after I finish his card and post it here, as well. Both cards are interactive - they're going to love them!

Edited to add:
Whew! Got them both finished and to the post office ten minutes before the last pick up. When am I going to learn??? LOL, I guess if I haven't learned by age 55 35, then I never will, huh? ;-)

Anyway, as I was saying, both cards are a bit interactive. For this card, I added a twirly "floating" heart inside. Before I closed the card and sealed it in the envelope, I twisted it up on its string, so when Taylor opens it, it will spin. It's kind of cute, and I think she'll like it.

Both the image (Inkadinkado "Heartful of Love") and the sentiment (from Rubbernecker) were stamped in VersaMark ink and the heat embossed with Stampendous "Red Dragon" EP. I just got that EP at Michael's a couple days ago, because I thought it looked neat. (Actually, the Magpie inside me went, "Oooo, shiny sparklies!" so I had to get it.) It matches the Riding Hood Red cardstock really well - almost liked I had planned it!

Didja notice I stamped tiny "Love", "Hugs", and "Kisses" around the edge in VersaMark?
