Hearts and Dies Love Card


It is the time of year when we see hearts all over and "Have a Heart" is the theme this week at one of my favorite challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. I used a hearts embossing folder from Darice and the Faux Textured Metal technique I learned about here to make this Love card. I masked off the sides of the front piece with temporary tape, then applied Pickled Raspberry and Fired Brick Distress Ink in the center. I brushed the colored rectangle with Iridescent Gold Pearlex Powder. Then I removed the mask and embossed the whole piece with the hearts embossing folder. I die cut Love from a die by Cherry Lynn. The Penny Black rose was die cut from two sided sticky paper and I colored it with ultra fine red and green glitter.

I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land (I used Penny Black and Cherry Lynn dies.)
