Valentine's heart cards with ribbon/thread, heart punchies and a postal background

A few more Valentine's cards!!!!!!!  I created this background a while back using images from Graphics Fairy and really love how well red hearts work with it.  I found these two in my stash so decided to use them for these cards.  I mounted them to black card fronts. On the left hand card I added a length of black ribbon to which I tied a short length using a single knot which nicely simulates a bow.  I dug through my little stash of hearts and found a collection for my card.  After finding an arrangement that I liked I glued them in place using white glue in a fine tip applicator which worked really well.  I left off a greeting to make this card more versatile!!
For my second card I tied on some heavy black thread wrapping it several times around my card front before tying it off.  I added six red hearts in different shades over the thread using 3D foam tape and finally added a little laser printed greeting on the bottom right hand corner.  I will have to find the digital file I created and print off a few more and see what else I can create with it!!
