Mini Valentine’s Cards

P1040051 copy
I am full of ideas for the McGill Heart Silhouettes and Shadows Punch set…and these little cards could not have been easier and they are the perfect size for tucking in a lunch bag…or leaving on a vanity…or a sock drawer…or a night stand…or a dash board…Somewhere fun…and not the closet where the vacuum is kept, because who’s beside you or I are going to see that? Hmm? Winking smile

My teeny sentiments were computer generated and punched out with the McGill Scallop Multi Tag.

In a well ventilated room (or even better…, outside) apply Spray Adhesive to  Heart Silhouettes and apply fine glitter. The glitter stay put…really well!
