Love Hearts

I have another card to share with you!
This is the Valentine card I made for my husband. I couldn't take a photo 
of it before as all my photo's appear on his phone too!


I wanted to keep it fairly clean & simple but a little bit in your face too! 
It's an A6 base with an added a panel that was embossed using a piece of sequin waste, 
then inked with a liquid chalk inkpad. The sentiment was printed directly 
on to the panel using my PC. Next I cut two hearts from some red & white dotty paper 
using a sizzix embosslit. I love how that baby cuts & embossed at the same time!
I covered the hearts in clear ink & heat embossed with clear embossing powder! 
I wish at this point that I had some UTEE but I don't, so,
 I repeat the process until I get the result I want!


You can see the high gloss here! 
I added some red & white twine & tied a little bow just to finish it off! 
I hope you like my little card which features another of my favourite techniques!
 If you have a favourite technique, why not make a project using it & share it with us in the latest challenge over at The Crafting Cafe!
