Happy Valentine’s Day!

V Day 2

This card is for my hubby. I have been waiting to post it until today so he wouldn’t see it before actually getting it. It was so much fun to make. I went for the faux pressed flowers technique that I saw on Splitcoast. I think the effect is better if the embossing is tighter, but I just had to use my hearts fiskars texture plate since I can use them in the Wizard… love it! The flowers were cut out of an old dictionary… so neat to match the words used to what you are doing… all about Love today!

V Day flower

I stamped  the swirly vines from Simply Divine in Noir Palette ink then adhered the flowers before embossing. I used a makeup sponge to wipe New Canvas across some of the hearts. The center of the flowers is a sequin with stickles… just saw the other day on someone’s card…. can’t remember where now to give credit but it is super cute! I added some white gel pen dots and ribbon from Wal Mart.

V Day

On the inside decided to carry the embossed hearts over on the mat.
