“XOXO” — By Susan Cobb

Designer Tip: Recreate Susan's design for that very special someone, then use the rest of the Brad Buddies™ in the pack to create five more quick and easy Valentines–you can mix up the same layout using different Brad Buddies™ and messages for each lucky recipient!



  1. Place the card with the fold on the left and ink the edges. Mat a 4 1/2"x6" piece of red satin paper on black glimmer paper, trim the mat to 1/32" and glue centered on the card front.
  2. Open the card and place the card front on a cutting mat. Use a craft knife to cut a 2 1/2"x1 1/2" window in the card front, then ink the edges of the window (or you can trace around the edges of the window with a black pen).
  3. Computer journal “Be Mine” onto white cardstock and crop to a small rectangle. Mat on black glimmer paper, trim the mat to 1/32" and glue under the bottom right corner of the window.
  4. Glue a length of black grosgrain ribbon across the bottom of the card front, trimming the ends even with the edges of the card. Tie 8" of ribbon into a shoestring bow and use a Zot™ to attach the bow toward the left end of the ribbon length.
  5. Use the heart brads to attach the “XOXO” Brad Buddy™ to the inside of the card (so it lies centered in the window when the card is closed).
