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!!

Hope you’ll join our Embossing Challenge this month – and remember, you can use Coupon Code BETTY15 for 15% off your order of $25.00 or more (before tax and shipping) at the a2z store.  a2z has just received the 2015 Hero Arts release so you can get your new “wants” right now at a discount!!  Did you know that we are on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook?.  Follow us on these different social media outlets so you won’t miss out on any fun promotions!

  6. Such a pretty Valentine card Betty I love how you created the “heart” window using a die! I also really like the tip you shared about how you adhere “vellum” elements to your cards! I will to try that glue some time and see how well it works for me!! Lately, I’ve been experimenting with some of the new “bottle” with the ultra fine tip…I have them filled with my favorite glue types and so far, they’ve been wonderful. But, I admit, vellum is always a challenge for me, yet I LOVE the look, so this sounds great — thanks!

  7. Stunningly beautiful Valentine!
