Kids Teddy Bear Heart Shaped Valentine

Click the following for:Vintage Valentine OSAAT DT Ch198 
OSAAT DT Ch198 Anything Goes.

Created this Kids Heart-Shaped Valentine Card using a Spellbinder heart die.The Heart-shaped Valentine 2 heart pieces are cut with Spellbinder largest Classic Heart die, each heart piece is scored at the top at 3 1/2", red tape adhesive is added above the score line on inside piece, the red tape is peeled off and then the 2 heart pieces are attached together.

Used craftsmart stamps for the sentiment & Teddy Bear.

Tried a new to me way of using washi tape. Placed strip of washi tape on an index card (cardstock can be used also) which gives it sturdiness, 2nd strip added above 1st strip, punched a shape out using a Stampin' Up heart punch, and used dots adhesive on back to attach the heart shape with washi tape on it to project.

Added ribbon and used a strip of washi tape to hold it in place. I've found that over time some of my washi tape on projects has peeled up at the ends. In order to prevent the ends from peeling up I used red tape adhesive over the ribbon before placing the washi tape on and this seems to hold the washi tape in place at the ends better. Has anyone else had the problem of the washi tape peeling up & what have you done to prevent this?

    Thanks for the washi tape tip. I just received an order of quite a few rolls but have yet to try them out. I've not had a problem with the Stampin' Up tapes - so I wonder if it varies depending on brands. Good to know!

  10. Oops, I got so distracted by thoughts of washi tape that I forgot to say...
