Valentine - Stamping 411 SSC188

Stop the presses! I have finally played along this week with the Operator's at Stamping 411. I have heard about this site for awhile from my wonderful upline and girlfriend Selene. I like to look at the sketches weekly for inspiration. Selene even includes dimensions to cut your cardstock or DSP so it is very easy to play along. Here is the sketch:

Here is my interpretation:

I was thinking of my Valentine class when I put this together. I knew that I wanted to use the Love Impressions Designer Series Paper. When  I looked closer at the large focal image I thought of hearts and decided to take it a step further and try out the inlaid embossing technique with my Big Shot and Square Lattice embossing folder. You just glue down the red and pink hearts and emboss the entire square with the Big Shot and folder. I added a bit of bling with two rhinestones. 

The great thing about this card is that it could be a love, anniversary or wedding card by just switching out the sentiment. Do you like this card? Would you like to get a group of friends together to stamp a few cards? Contact me today to book a workshop. Sale-A-Bration is here and this is a great time of year to host a workshop.
