My Last Valentine's Day Card, I Promise


Okay, this is it, my last Valentine's Day card! I thought I would make an elegant card, I love using gold embossing powder and layering with gold paper. I stamped the image which is by Stampendous, with VersaMark ink and embossed with champagne embossing powder. The image is painted with Twinkling H2O's (and I just ordered the new set of twelve while at CHA), so the image is really shimmering but the scan doesn't show it. Then layered it onto plum and gold papers. The cream card is stamped with hearts by Great Impressions in a light pink, I can't remember the name and I don't want to run down stairs to check, yes I'm lazy, it's late. After glueing on a plum panel, I inked just one little heart from the Great Impressions stamp with VersaMark, stamped and embossed, then added a heart sticker. Added some beautiful green satin ribbon and I'm done!
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes on getting over my cold, I'm all better now but my hubby is really sick, he came home early from work and will be home tomorrow. He so rarely gets sick, that having this cold is killing him. So it looks like another week before my house is germ free :(

This is so elegant with all of the detailed embossing and shimmer. I'm sorry to hear your husband's not feeling well now. You're about a week behind me in all this viral stuff that's been going around. Hopefully you will all be able to get some rest this weekend. Next week will be much better than this one! :) Hang in there!
