Love Always

Hello Friends! Valentine's Day is really just around the corner. I have a few more cards to share with you, though. I used the dimensional hearts again, but in a different way. Have a look...

I stacked the punched hearts and used patterned paper as my final punch. I random stamped hearts on the background paper, using Versamark ink and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. It adds a subtle shimmer and a bit of texture. Really simple layout here, just matting and layering.

Here is what I did to the inside...

I decided to use non-traditional Valentine's Day colors on this one. I like the black with the cream. My daughter said it was, "Very classy". LoL! Alrighty then! I added a few punched hearts for interest and covered one with red Stickles. I'm beginning to appreciate Stickles more and more. It's so much fun!

That's all I have for today. I thank you so much for stopping by!

Barb, your daughter is right - this is very classy. I love the DP as background and then on the heart. The punch of red on the inside is perfect.
