Valentine Cards #2 - Heat Embossed

Hi Everybody. Just a few more Valentine cards. I made 3 of them with two similar but different designer paper. I heat embossed the heart and flowers with gold embossing powder to give it a shiny appearance.

I think gold and red go well together. I didn't create a sketch for this one because it's a fairly simple layout.


I don't know if you've figured it out by now but I love to heat emboss my images. It's just a fun way to create dimension to an otherwise flat image. I actually stamped and heat embossed the flower images for the Glittery Ornaments for Christmas but I didn't have a chance to use them all so I decided to use them for these Valentine cards.

Have you guys started on your Valentine cards already? It's best to start early.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: SU Loving Hearts, Flowers (SU unknown), Love Matters (sentiment)
Paper: K&Co designer paper, SU Creamy Caramel, Real Red
Ink: Versamark ink, Black, Tim Holtz distressing ink (shading)
Accessories: Gold embossing powder, Marvy oval punch, Fiskar scallop scissors, grosgrain ribbon
