You Rule! Valentine

I wanted to make these super simple because lets face it, the ruler will be ripped out and the rest thrown in the garbage.  Sad, but true.
For the above Valentine I used (1385) White Daisy cardstock as my base cut at 3 x 4 3/4.  I then cut the (1272) Cranberry Cardstock piece at 2 3/4 x 4 1/2.  I random stamped some hearts I had in different stamp sets using (Z2116) Cranberry Ink.  Using my cutting board and exacto knife I cut two slits about an inch in length.  I slipped in my ruler.  I bought a huge bag off of Amazon.  I'm sure any local party store would carry them too.  I then attached the Cranberry piece to the white piece.  I cut the heart using my exclusive Cricut cartridge (Z1790) Artiste.  The hearts are cut at 2 inches using the heart on page 66.  I then used Cranberry ink again and a alphabet stamp set to stamp "you rule!".  I attached the heart using some (Z1151) 3D foam tape.  

This one is even more simple.  The heart is the same as the other and I used (Z1751) Cranberry Bakers Twine to tie it to the ruler.  My little guy will write his name on the back for all his classmates.
