Cuttlebug Valentine

img_7084card16

This heart is  the first  stamp I have  from the new catalog.  I didn’t have a heart stamp so I decided to get this beautiful one.   Simple though this card is, it took me forever!  I had hoped to post it a few days ago but I just couldn’t work out what was missing.  I changed orientation, added words, removed the ribbon, etc, etc.   As it turned out all it needed was the embossed background;  I had been working with a blank vanilla piece which was just too plain.  The embossed background filled in the space without making it too busy.

I stamped the heart in red, cut it out and cut a matte out of real red.  The heart is raised slightly over the ribbon by stampin’ dimensionals.  Thanks for dropping in, I have another heart card which I am almost finished which should be up soon.

Supplies:
Inks:  Real Red
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Real Red
Stamps:  Ever After
Also:  Red grosgrain ribbon,  Birds and Swirls cuttlebug folder
