|Valentine's Card using Always Elegant and Artistic Etchings stamp sets.|
|Close up of sentiment|
|Inside of card|
Stamp the flourish image for Always Elegant in concord crush on very vanilla cardstock. Stamp key and flourish from Artistic Etching set in basic gray, creating a collage of images. Sponge the whole thing in pretty in pink and then the edges in concord crush. Adhere collage image to a piece of striped pattern DSP that has been sponged with concord crush. Wrap a piece of basic gray satin ribbon (retired) around and secure on the back with glue dots. Adhere DSP to basic gray card base. Punch a photo corner in concord crush patterned DSP. Layer it under another photo corner that has been punched out of the whole left by a curly label punch. Adhere in upper left corner using dimensionals. For sentiment, stamp flourish from Always Elegant again in concord crush on very vanilla CS. Punch a full heart, ensuring the flourish image is centred. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark and heat emboss using silver EP. Sponge the edges of heart in concord crush and adhere to a scalloped heart of hearts die cut in brushed silver. Adhere sentiment to card using dimensionals. Add three rhinestone basic jewels in the lower right corner of the cardfront and one to the photo corner in the upper left corner.
The inside is pretty simple and self-explanatory...I kept it fairly plain to allow lots of room to write a mushy love note!
Stay tuned this week for more Valentines...of the traditional sort!
