This is the first year that I did not buy a box of Valentine's Day cards for my girls.  I made a total of 50 of these cards.  Took a lot of work but it was definately relaxing.  Here is the list of supplies I used to make this card:

- cut Micheals Kraft cardstock to 3x8
- using the ScorPal score the card at 1 and 3 inches
- fold on the 1 and the 3 inch lines
- on the 1 inch side use the Tim Holtzs stapler and staple on both sides and cover with the red 1x3 cardstock
- use the "will you be mine" stamp with colorbox cranberry
- use the "kissing birds" stamp with Versafine black ink
   - color the birds with At You Spica red and black pens (let dry)
- stamp front of card with HeroArts cling "Hugs and Kisses" using colorbox cranberry ink
