I Heart Valentines

Hello. I thought I'd share a Valentine card I made while in Texas last week, guess you could call this one my "Houston Heart"!
I stamped 465 Scrollwork Corner with Distress Embossing Ink onto a 6x6 panel of Core'dinations CS and filled in the outlined areas with a White Gel Pen. For the heart, I stamped 434 Scalloped Heart Frame with White Dye Ink onto 36# parchment and heat embossed using a new powder called Valentine Sparkle, which is a fine detail deep red with red glitter...pretty! I then used my blue embossing mat and stylus tools to etch the white around the lacy part of the heart image, the straight grid was used to add embossed dots to the open area of the heart, and finally I used the 4-split perforating tool and black perforating pad to cut around the design.
This would make a pretty box topper or the front page of a mini album too!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
See ya next card!
Happy stamping,
:) stacey
