Heart to Heart

This card was created for a co-worker to give to his "sweetheart" for Valentine's Day.  He specifically requested red and white.

I started by cutting a piece of Shimmery White paper using a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen #6 die (I seem to be using this one quite a bit lately).  The sentiment by PSX was inked in VersaMark then Cherry Cobbler and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  I wanted to add a little something to the background so I stamped the flourish from the Elements of Style set in VersaMark and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  They are faint, but I think you can see them in the picture.

Cheery Lynn Designs Heart to Heart Lace Doily dies were cut from Cherry Cobbler paper and glued on.  The edges of the Shimmery White paper were sponged in Cherry Cobbler.

The crinkle ribbon is just a piece of Cherry Cobbler seam binding.  Using my Bow-Easy I created the bow then sprayed the ribbon with some water to dampen (mini mister bottles are great for this).  Next, I sprayed SU Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz liberally on the ribbon and scrunched it with my hand.  After I let it dry overnight I attached it with a Making Memories Je t'Adore heart brad.  The key brad is also from Making Memories.

The inside sentiment and flourish were stamped in Cherry Cobbler and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I punched three hearts from glimmer paper for a little pizazz!

Very romantic. Semi transparent ribbon gives even more depth.
