Cultivate Love

This is a valentine that I did a couple of years ago (actually I made about 20 of these babies!). The heart was cut in my Wizard with SAR (Some Assembly Required). Some might say SAAPR (some assembly and patience required) but once I got the release foam on correctly (too much, no cut, too little, stuck in die) I got the hang of putting them together. Larger hearts are easy to do. It is just with the small ones, it is more tedious. The end result is worth it. I used Serendipity stamps on this card and would have used Nestabilities for the opening but they weren't out yet. The heart flattens so it can be mailed.
I am just trying to give you some ideas since Valentine's Day will be here soon!

Jan, It can be tedious and I did use tweezers to help put the parts in place, but once you get the hang of it, it isn't that bad. I have the larger stamp set for the hearts, which I cut (with scissors) out of fun foam and helped children put them together at summer camp (those don't collapse due to the thickness of the fun foam).
The kids caught on quickly. There are directions with the stamps or the die.
I do remember my husband saying that they were a labor of love!
Oh, and I saw your blog you did to show Wendy your butterfly.....she is a friend of mine!
