Be My Valentine Embossed Card

 This is the first time ever that I have created a card with an embossed sentiment.  I use the folders all the time which you can't really tell from the picture, but the white background is embossed but while digging through my folders, I happened across this sentiment and decided to try to make a card with it.  I always love how I can size my squares and cut them in MTC before assembling the card.  Lazy, I know but I like to have everything "fit" like I want and MTC shadowing allows me to do that!   I actually love how it turned out.  I also decided to drag out the twine and buttons which I also like on this card.  So much fun!  The hardest thing was keeping the twine from fraying.  What is your secret?  Sure makes it hard to thread when it unravels so easy..... Valentine's die cut (card and squares) and embossing embossed hearts valentine valentine valentines with hearts anything goes any holiday embossing photo challenge love
