Forever Yours

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is such a great time to make cards to show people how special they are to you.  What could be more special than receiving a handmade card telling you how much you are loved.

Today’s card has lots of hearts and and sparkle.  The image is Sweet Briar Frame from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I stamped and heat embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder on vellum, then colored from the back with markers.  I used Versamark ink and Mulberry Star Embossing Powder to heat emboss the sentiment, from SNS’s Floral-Swamp Rose set.  I added a little more sparkle by adding Pretty Princess Glitter around the edge of the decorative paper behind the image and on the punched heart at the top with a glue pen.  For full details on this card go to the SNS website here.

Thanks for stopping by,

E. Marie
