One more Valentine before the big day tomorrow – just in case you need a quick idea for a last minute card! The theme for this month at a2z is “emboss it” so make a card to enter using this inspiration! You could win a $25 gift certifcate!
To create my card I first die cut the heart from Spellbinders Classic Heart die. On a scrap of white stamped the HA leafy vine in Versamark and embossed with HA white embossing powder. Rubbed HA red royal shadow ink over the embossing and used a baby wipe to remove some of the ink from the embossed parts. That piece went behind the open heart.
Mounted that on HA carnation layering paper and then onto the card base which is Neenah astroparche. Embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Ranger liquid platinum and adhered with some Aleene’s clear gel glue – I just put little dots of it behind the letters and it holds really well and doesn’t show – this is my favorite way for adhering vellum. Also like this glue because it never clogs – ever ever! Added a few HA clear gemstones (love these – the perfect little accent) and done and dusted!!
