Here is a Valentine card made with the Heartstrings paper pack, the January Stamp of the Month set called "This Moment", and then Hello Wonderful Stamp Set.
I embossed the Heartstrings background paper with the NEW Heart Embossing Folder then sanded over it to make the hearts stand out.
I got the original inspiration for this card from a sketch at Aliciabels's Challenge Blog. However, in place of the bow, I used the same swag I used in previous cards. Reason being, I stamped a bunch of them and fussy cut them while watching a movie Saturday night. I got a little carried away with them. I might try this sketch again with a bow next time.
I stamped the circle with the Hello Wonderful stamp in Whisper Gray ink. Then the "I Adore You" from the same set in Black. The Love Notes is from the January Stamp of the Month Set. All stamped in Black and heat embossed with clear detail EP.
I used a Sparkle Black Flourish and a silver Sequin with an alcohol marker, hand colored, clear sparkle in the middle. I wanted to add a third element of the lagoon to the card. I used the Lagoon Hearts Washi tape for the border.
