Valentine Love Card


Good morning!  Today I have a Valentine card to share with you that I made with my new Valentine dies from The Scrapping Cottage.  I used the Vintage Keys die and Frames 1 dies for this card, as well as the Frame 1 word/sentiment stamps.  

The key was made by cutting it with white card stock, then coating the surface with Versamark ink and sprinkling on gold embossing powder.  After a quick heat set to melt the powder, I let it cool or set up for a minute, then repeated the process two more times for a nice, thick metallic look to the key.  This was a fast and easy card, and I sure like those every once in a while.  I cut the Label 1 in both red and white, and stamped the sentiment with the Label 1 word stamps. The addition of some pearls, ribbon and a metal heart sticker finished this card off just beautifully.

Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit today!  I wish you a glorious day and weekend and lots of happy stamping!
