January 2014 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Part 2

Hey Hoppers,
  Back again for Part 2 of my Blog Hop Entry for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

This card is one of my favorites that I've made in a while.  It is so soft and pretty in person.

I made the Framed Love die cut first and covered it in versamark ink and then Gold Glitter Zing Embossing powder.  Still one of my favorite products right now. Such a pretty glittery gold.

I wanted the frame to be the focal point of the card, so I used that as my jumping off point in designing the rest of it.  I started off with a sweet blush card base. Using the polka dot patterned heart from Happy Hearts in Sweet Blush ink, I stamped randomly on the card base. I then went back with Hibiscus Burst ink and stamped the same image again next to the first set of Sweet Blush hearts.

Next up, I decided to try out the white embossing on vellum to soften the look of the background and help my frame stand out.  Loving the way Danielle Flanders has been using this technique lately, so I was excited to try it.  I used Fancy Flourishes stamp set and stamped the images in versamark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I attached that to my card base.  I then added a die cut from Limitless Layers Hearts, also from Sweet Blush, and centered it on the card front before adding my gold glittered frame.

I can't wait for Valentine's day to get here! I love spoiling my girls and my sweet husband.
