Valentine's Day card idea with 2 Cute Ink digital stamp

Here's another Valentine's Day card and this time it's for my mother – a gate card – using 2 Cute Ink's Beary Sweet digital stamp as the focal image. I'm a member of the 2 Cute Ink digi club and received this sweetie with my January stamps. It's doing Valentine duty here, but really it could be used for just about any occasion. Honey Script is the sentiment free font tucked in next to the stamp.

The frame around the image is Toga's Polaroid die; a fab, versatile die, it looks good however you use it (this Christmas card from last year is another example).

Felt hearts from my stash, ribbons and a button dress it all up.

Digital stamp – 2 Cute Ink Beary Sweet
