Cupid Valentine

For my four daughters I made this Valentine card.
The 6 1/2 X 5 Halcraft Greeting Card was used as the card base. I cut the corners with a Fiskars 3 way corner punch. AC Cardstock was used for all of the cuts on the front of the card.
Using the largest(4 1/4 inches) Spellbinders Heart Squares the mat was cut using the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine. Cupid(2 3/4 inches), layer and the shadow were cut with the Cricut Expression using the Sweethearts cartridge(page 33). The heart held by Cupid is embellished with Christmas Red Stickles. The mat was adhered to the card base with foam squares and Cupid was adhered to the mat with foam squares as well.
The band was made using the Martha Stewart Linked Trim punch and ribbon from Michaels was threaded through and made tied into a bow that is held in place with a mini GlueDot.
The sentiment using the Jasmine cartridge was welded with the Gypsy machine and cut with the Cricut Expression machine.
The sentiment on the inside of the card was found on the internet. I printed it on Georgia Pacific cardstock. I cut it into the heart shape using a Fiskars Shaper Template. I inked the edges with Colorbox Warm Red. Some of the hearts that were cut out of the mat on the front and the arrow is left over from the Cupid layer cut.
