Valentine Love – stepped up version

valentine card close up

Yesterday I shared a sweet little valentine card that my neighbour made. Today I’m back to show my stepped up version of the same card, with added distressing.

valentine card

Stamp sets: Valentine Love (W122695 or C122697), Very Vintage (117693), Texture (116685)
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy (106574), Riding Hood Red (116205), Crumb Cake (121685), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Bravo Burgundy (105214), Riding Hood Red (111836), Crumb Cake (121030), Versamark (102283)

The card base is again a square of Bravo Burgundy matted this time with Crumb Cake card. A mat of Very Vanilla was stamped in the centre with the Valentine Love heart in Riding Hood Red and Very Vintage was wheeled around all the edges in the same ink. The Texture wheel was then used to stamp in Crumb Cake and then Versamark which was heat embossed with Clear EP. Sponge Daubers were used to apply Riding Hood Red and Bravo Burgundy inks around the edges, building gradually, working from the outside towards the centre and wiping with kitchen towel to remove excess ink from the embossed areas. Once sufficient colour had been built up the edges were wheeled again with Texture using the Bravo Burgundy ink. This layer was then adhered direct to the card front. After stamping the heart again in Versamark onto Riding Hood Red card and heat embossing with Cherry Cobbler EP, it was punched out with the Full Heart, sponged lightly with more Riding Hood Red ink and popped up on dimensionals.
