Favorite Stamp of the Month

Today Emma and the My Creative Time design team is showcasing a "Favorite Stamp of the Month":  You Had Me at Chocolate.  This is definitely a stamp set I love, as you'll be able to see with the many projects I'm sharing in this post.  I kept it really simple with the card above.  It's just an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of kraft cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".

To make my border, I began with a strip of My Mind's Eye patterned paper, edged with the ekSuccess Bumpy Roads edger punch.  I added a strip of red cardstock, and then the "I Love You" strip, cut with my Silhouette out of white textured cardstock.  This cut is one of a set of six Valentine borders designed by Lori Whitlock that can be purchased from the Silhouette Online Store. I sized it at 5.5" in width, making the height 0.34".  Can you believe how well it cut those teeny letters?

To frame my sweet sentiment from You Had Met at Chocolate, I used the Stitched Heart Die that is included in the My Creative Time 100% Sweetness stamp set.

Here are the products I used for this card:
