Scripted Heart Valentine

Hi everybody.  Here is a valentine card I made for my hubby.  It is a bit glitsy but toned down by the black background I think.  I used an Indigoblu stamp called French Script and a Leonie Pujol embossing folder called Dotty Heart.


I started with the black background and covered two thirds of it with the script heat embossing with WOW Black Sparkle Embossing Glitter.  I then die cut a red heart using a set of dies from Sweet Dixie with the WOW Red Sparkle on the right hand side of the heart, again using the French Script.  I dry embossed the other side of the heart with the Dotty Heart embossing folder, and then added a piece of funky foam underneath for a bit of dimension.  I finished by using the sentiment die from The Works and cut two  of them, heat embossing the top one with two layers of Metallic Silver Embossing Glitter, and layered the two together offsetting them to make a white highlight which unfortunately doesn't show up that well in the photo.

Hubby did say he loved the card without any prompting from me, so I take that as a pleasing result...lol.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.

No wonder DH loved this card Pat as it is so romantic, classy and gorgeous. I like how you did the stamping on half of the heart and two thirds of the black card stock. The dry embossing looks great too x.

I love how you dry embossed half of your heat and stamped the other half! Text stamps are some of my favorite for adding "just a touch more" to cards! Thanks for playing along in our "Be Mine, Valentine" challenge over on The Card Concept!
