I have wanted to do a black, white and red theme card for a while so I thought this valentine card would be a great opportunity to work with the colors. I made the card base Whisper White. I added a layer of Basic Black card stock that I spritzed with
Paint that was mixed with alcohol (helps dry quickly) and ran through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. It doesn't show well in the photo but the shimmer paint adds just a little bit of sparkle. The Basic Black scallop circle was punched with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch, matted with a Whisper White circle punched with the 2-1/2" Circle punch and adhered to the card front. The small white envelope was made with the Petal Card punch by folding in three of the four sides and sealing. I tied a knot around it using the Real Red taffeta ribbon and popped it up with dimensionals on the circle piece. The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper WhiteModern Label punch and matted with Basic Black and Real Red card stock punched out with the same punch. I added it to the card front with dimensionals. I used the 3 Heart Punch to punch out a set of hearts from the Red Glimmer paper, Real Red card stock and Whisper White card stock that was stamped with the 3 heart stamp from the Love You Much stamp set. The rest of the hearts were punched out of Real Red card stock using the small heart punch. I randomly placed them on the card front adhering only the bottom part of each heart so that I could slip another heart behind it if I wanted to. A few of the tiny pearls were added to random hearts. Although there isn't much stamping, I built up some strength in my hands using all the punches. I hope you like my card today.
