Sweet Valentine

Sometimes the simplest projects are my favorite.  I love how this sweet frame and picture of my daughter Leah turned out.
To make the inner heart I first die cut the opening in a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Curly Label Movers and Shapers die.   Then I centered the second largest Heart Framelit over it and ran it through the Big Shot.

I stamped the frame image from the Elementary Elegance stamp set over the opening and the butterfly with Versamark ink.  After heat embossing with White embossing powder, I sponged it with Early Espresso ink.

This heart was then adhered to a Very Vanilla scallop heart (cut with the largest Hearts Framelit) using Stampin' Dimensionals to give it depth.  A 2" X 5" stand, scored at 1-1/4", was attached to the back.

And speaking of sweet and simple..... Leah made these yummy chocolate truffles.
We thought you might enjoy the recipe for them as well:
Mix together 8 oz cream cheese, 1 cup fine quality cocoa and 2 cups confectioner's sugar until smooth and creamy.   Mold into balls.  Melt 8 oz milk chocolate chips and dip each ball.  Place on waxed paper and add decorations.   Mmmmm!!!
