Fun Friday - Be My Valentine and a mini tutorial!

Hi,hope your week has been good!
It's time for Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge...Be My Valentine.
We want to see your Valentine project.
Here is the card I gave my hubby...
I have  a mini tutorial on how I made this.
I used an X-Cut Heart Doily Die and my Vagabond to cut it out.
Then inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink.
I took my(new) paper distresser to distress the edge of my kraft cardstock.
You can take the edge of your scissors to do the same.
I distressed my DP as well and then machine stitched it to the card front.
The great thing about distressing the paper edges is that your stitching doesn't have to be perfect!
I added a bear from Teddy Bear Parade and stamped a Peachy Keen face.
I used a My Creative Time sentiment and heart and a banner die.
I tucked the heart under the bear's arm.
Thank you for calling by and looking.
Do check out all the wonderful inspiration my DT sisters have for you and come and join in the fun.
