Embossed Valentine's Card

Well Valentine's Day has really crept up on me this year, so I thought I had better make a card.  Hubby would never forgive me if I purchased one, as I have so much craft stuff about!

I prefer to make a smaller size card and quite often go for a clean and simple look.  For this card, I used a "Tri-boss" embossing folder to get the textured background.

I die cut two hearts.  Stuck one to the card and then added sticky gems to the other.  I mounted them on top of each other using a foam pad to provide a 3D look.

Finally, using a Papertrey Ink stamp from their "Love Lives Here" set, I stamped the sentiment using a "Black Cherry" StazOn ink.

The embossed detail doesn't show too much, so I have made a little video clip which is on the Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/ACraftingNiche/videos/398711857244827/
