Loads Of Love

Here’s the card I made for my Valentine - I hope he likes it!

The card base has some of the words from the Welcoming Words Level 1 Hostess set stamped over it in VersaMark ink, along with some spots from the Seeing Spots set.
Unfortunately, it can’t be seen very clearly in the photo.
I pricked a line of holes along the straight piece of card and then turned my attention to the heart pouch.
I love making templates to use with my card making. This heart shaped one took a bit of fiddling to get it the way I wanted it, but I got there in the end.
Do you think the closure looks a bit like eyes?
There are lots of pull-out tags inside the pouch which can be seen more clearly below.
Inside I wrote, 'I love you' in my best-est handwriting and signed it with a ? As I always initial my work though, it won't take him long to suss out it came from me!
Time for me to tidy up now. I got just about everything out in order to make this card.
