Lots of Hearts! (LNS107)

I bought a couple of $1 bags, I already had tissue paper, I bought $2 candies, and I needed tags or gift cards. I made these 3x 3 gift cards out of Whisper White with the Filled With Love Bundle DSP. I also used the Scallop Heart Embosslit and Full Heart Punch. The little hearts are the small hearts from the Heart to Heart Punch. I used a retired stamp set, "A Happy Heart." I just punched the cards on the inside with the 1/16" Punch and ran some Silver Cord through to tie them onto the rope handles of the bags. It's a great last minute gift for my mom and my son.
A Yahoo Group that I'm in has a weekly challenge. This week's challenge was called "Hearts Abound" and we were to use hearts on our projects. I tried to make it look like hearts were flying out of the little die-cut envelope. The scallop circle stamp is from "Love You Much". I thought that set was retired because I couldn't find it. I just thought it was in one of the boxes of retired stamps. Well, when I was putting my stamp sets back into the book case after the new floor covering was installed, I found it!
This view shows the inside of the card. Another stamp from "Love You Much" was used. This was a fun project and pretty quick, too. Everything used to make these cards is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!!

What adorable cards - I love the little envelope with hearts. I have that die, but didn't think of using it that way - so cute. Thanks for the inspiration, CA.
