Be My Valentine

Got a little play time last night! Actually I had most of the evening and could have had several more cards done but lost something I "NEEDED" to finish this one! Don't you hate that?? I knew I had these buttons, but boy were they hiding!! Yes, I need to clean my room!! Here is the card.


I just got this new heart, Be My Valentine, from the Occasions Mini catalog and wanted to do something with it. It was perfect for the sketch challenge over at Stampin' Addicts and also fits the Valentine theme at Pals Paper Arts.

Card base is Riding Hood Red with a tight layer of Soft Suede behind the Very Vanilla background. I stamped the background with two of the hearts from I Heart Hearts in Riding Hood Red across the top and bottom. I then spritzed it with the Soft Suede marker and textured it with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Another strip of layers is across the center, Soft Suede first then Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla. The Very Vanilla is spritzed with both Soft Suede and Riding Hood Red and also textured with the Square Lattice folder. I stamped the Be My Valentine heart twice, once is Soft Suede and once in Riding Hood Red. I cut the banner out on the Riding Hood Red and added it to the Soft Suede. My final accents are the missing buttons from the Holiday Mini in Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler with Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta knotted through them.

Thanks for stopping by today-hope you're having a great weekend AND finding some stamping time!! :)

That looks so cool! At first I thought you had done the inlaid embossing on it and wondered how you cut out the hearts, then I read your description. Love this!
