Embossed Heart Love Card with Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!! =)

Pin It

 

Hello!!

So EXCITED I was able to play along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week!!
I decided I'd create a FUN LOVE Card that I could use for several occasions!! Wedding, Anniversaries, just to say I LOVE you, ect. I started by lightly drawing a heart shape on the front of my card with a pencil!! Then I took the two different arrow stamp pieces from the Sweet Heart Stamp Set and stamped them with a space in between so I could add a heart in the space later!! I stamped the arrows with Versa Mark Ink and then heat embossed them with Ranger Ultra Fine Gold Embossing Powder!!
  

I LOVE the way it looks!! I then too the mini heart and stamped it in between the arrow pieces using some Rose Petal Chalk Ink from Prima!! After my ink was dry I took the LOVE Die and ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot with a Spellbinders Embossing Mat and Embossed it in the center of my Heart!! I then took it and left the Die in place and added some Ink around the Die going lighter around the edges!! Once I removed the die I had a PERFECT Outlined Embossed word and then I decided to add just a tiny touch of ink just to tone down the starkness of the word alittle bit!! I also wanted the LOVE to stand out just alittle bit more so I took my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and colored in the word and the hearts around the border!! It is really subtle, but in real life it finished it off just perfectly!!
The other neat thing about a card like this and having them on hand is that if I have time I can always come back and personalize it later!!
I added Scotch Foam Tape to the back of the panel and then attached it the card front!!
Here is my finished card!!



THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)
I'll also be linking this up for the Guest Designer Challenge and for the Fun and Cute Challenge!!
