Shiny Valentine

Hello everyone!

Tday I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge with a Valentine’s card using non-traditional colours!

I received an order from Simon Says Stamp this morning – I picked up a few of their embossing folders in a sale last month! Anyway, I could not wait to play, so I misted the reverse of some satin cardstock and got embossing with the Pinpoint Starlets folder. I love the deep embossing folders but I am very careful after the Great Pinecone Plethora Trauma of 2021! Anyway, I have found it easier to put a cutting plate on top of the embossing folder rather than below it – I find it ensures this satin cardstock stays in place.

I left the cardstock dry and die cut the hearts using a few Memory Box heart dies. I then adhered the Poppystamps Doodle Happy Valentine’s Day on the gold heart before sticking all the hearts onto the embossed base. I have to say this was very difficult to photograph but I got there in the end!

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has a theme of embossing this week, so I’m also entering this card over there!

Thanks for stopping by!
