Embossed Valentine

Supplies: Stamps: Hero Arts and SU French Script Paper: black, cherry cobbler, ivory Ink: TPC graphite, black and cherry cobbler markers Accessories: top note die cut, sizzix flourish heart embossing folder, wright's ribbon, gem

It's time for some Valentine's! Michael's had some super cute new Sizzix embossing folders. My Mom discovered that the flourish folder fit inside the top note die cut, so I took her idea and used it to make this card. When using the embossing folder it was a pretty tight fit to get it centered on the top note die cut. I stumbled upon this link by Tim Holtz and made a cut in my embossing folder to allow me to center the flourish on the top note die. Next, I took Mary's punch concept and used it with the top note die cut. I also used her scrunchy ribbon technique for my ribbon treatment. To finish off the card I embossed the heart and cut it out in red and adhered it to the flourish and added a gem in the center.

Better get going, off to work!
