ID: VSN December 2011 - Valentine - 2 Hearts card
 x 5"h

Created: Dec 17, 2011

This is one of my submissions for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the February 2012 issue with the theme of "Valentine with a quote or poem" but alas it did not make it into the magazine.

The quote is a Quietfire Design rubber stamp.


Spliced my white cardstock to create a side folded card. Stamped my quote (minus the author's name) with Versafine Toffee and embossed with gold embossing powder. Masked this horizontal area with post its and sponged Distress Pumice Stone. Inked my screen background stamp (Penny Black "Warm Wishes") with the Pumice Stone and clear embossed.

Adhered a piece of white lace (purchased at a fabric store) with double sided tape and then the red gauze ribbon.

Stamped a piece of white cardstock using the Toffee and embossing with the gold. Sponged Distress "Pumice" all over, sprinkled with clear embossing powder, flicked off the excess - vigorously, then thermal embossed it. Sponged heavily with  "Barn Door" to get into the crevices. Die cut with Spellbinders Classic Heart die (3rd size up)  and edged each heart with a red Zig Writer. Adhered to card and added some flourish pearls (Say it with Bling).

Inked up the author's name on the quote stamp with the Toffee and stamped along the edge of the horizontal strip.
