This is the third day I’ve shared a card made by one of my Candy Hearts team members for our January team meeting swap. Judy Newsome of Lafayette, GA, used the Hey Love stamp set with the Dot to Dot embossing folder and a couple of punches to create this fun Valentine. And it has a pun! And you know how I love puns! Look at the cute little gorilla and the sentiment “I’m ape over you.” And the embossed dots in the background add even more whimsy. This card would be perfect for a child, but could also be given to any fun loving adult.
Here’s what Judy made:
