Hello blogging friends! Today, is my day to post for the The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I know Christmas was just last week and on Wednesday it will be New Years Day. But Valentine's Day is going to be here before we know it so I wanted to get a jump start on some cards.
Here is a card I designed using some of the gorgeous paper from Kaiser Craft The Lake House collection. I think this paper is so pretty and perfect to use for Valentine cards. The piece of paper I used has a floral background with a combination of pinks and gray.
I cut and embossed two of the hearts from the S5-204 Lace Hearts die templates. For one of them I used Bazzill Mirror Cardstock-Gold cardstock. For the second one I used Simply Smooth White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from JustRite Papercraft® SW-04840 Sweet Hearts using Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then heat embossed it with Ranger Super Fine Embossing Powder-Gold. Then I lightly inked the edges with Memento Angel Pink ink. I also die cut the key from the same die template set. I added some Prima Flowers Audrey Black, White and Grey Roses, Abbey Pink Flowers, and Melissa Frances Pearls-Pewter. For the flowers I applied Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and then covered them with Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy. To get a nice and even coverage of the glitter I apply the glue with a paint brush--just brush it on over the entire flower. Be sure to wash your paint brush with some soap and water right away to remove the glue.
To finish off the card I used some May Arts Metallic String-Gold on the key and then I added a gray mat and a pink card base. I know the pink, gray and gold is kind of a different color combination but I really like how it turned out.
