Alternate use of Stamp

Hi Stampers! 
Today's card is a CASE (copy and share everything) of a card byDebra Burgin that I found on her blog.
It uses the single stamp "Be My Valentine" (122045) found on page 43 of the Occasions Mini catalog which was stamped with Pretty in Pink and versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. On this card, the be my valentine is covered with ribbon and a sentiment from "You're A Gem" (122268) found on page 25 of the Occasions Mini catalog, was used. The crown is from "Artistic Etchings" (118517) found on page 125 of the Idea Book and Catalog and was embossed with silver embossing powder. 
This is a 4.25" x 4.25" SQUARE card using a 4 x 4 piece of DSP. Because the USPS charges extra to mail a square card of any size, I punched the small heart in the lower LEFT corner of the envelope and then glued a 1+" of DSP into the envelope. (Put the glue or Snail adhesive on both sides of the DSP on the side that is fartherest away from the edge of the envelope) This adds a decoration to the outside of the envelope, "snugs up" the card inside the envelope and SAVES POSTAGE because now it can be sent for the $.44 since it is no longer a square. I love the win-win-win! 
Happy Stampin'!
