Be Mine Valentine - Quick Quotes Inspiration

Happy Valentines Day my blogging friends. I have a sweet card to share with you today that I made for my hubby with the new Quick Quotes wedding collection called Simple Elegance. This paper collection is so gorgeous and did you know that Quick Quotes has photo albums as well as scrapbooks for those very special pictures too.
Lots of times its hard to ink the nooks and crannies of a die cut. Here is my trick. Apply a small amount of Powderpuff chalk ink to your craft mat. Using an H2O pen, pick up the ink from the mat and dab it on the white paper core in the nooks and crannies. It takes a little more time, but the result is a much more polished look.
