Embossed Valentine


I'm sharing a Valentine I made that has lots of embossing on it for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - which is to "emboss it - heat emboss, dry emboss, or use embossing paste." This started with a red embossed panel done with a Sizzix Heart Double Embosslit, and I dotted the heart edges with a white gel pen, adding 3 white mini heart-shaped brads. The white panel was embossed with a Sizzix Curlique & hearts ef, while the lower panel was embossed with a SU! Arrows Textured Impressions ef. I embossed and hand-cut the red & white pieces and inserted them into the embossed areas in the center. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and the ribbon was from my stash.

Thanks for checking in today and make it a fantastic day!

Wow! Look at all that lovely embossing. I confess I don't think I've ever thought of combining so many different embossed layers before. You really made it work. You hand cut those arrow pieces? Double Wow! This card makes me happy!
