Offset Valentine Tree

  This Valentine's card couldn't get any more simple!


  It's embarrassing to say as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, but I do not own a current Valentine's day set!  I have 2 stamp sets that have a heart stamp in them but that's it!  Yikes right?  Nope!  You just need to think outside the "stamp set" a bit!

  I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree and simply added some little punched hearts (from the Owl punch).  I went off the reservation even more by stamping the tree off center on the Whisper White cardstock.  Generally I'm an "everything balanced and in its place" stamper but sometime we need to challenge our regular style!

  The sentiment is stamped and flagged and anchored with a Calypso Coral button tied with black baker's twine.

  So don't despair if you need to make Valentine's cards and you don't have a "Valentine's Day" stamp set.  Get crafty and make what you have on hand work!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
