Vintage Lace Valentine

I have been busy posting cards this evening and I thought I would share the best for last. I think of out of all the six cards I have posted this one is probably my favorite.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Very Vanilla base. The second layer is also Very Vanilla, it is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. The top and bottom are stamped in Crumb Cake with Delicate Details (a free Sale a-bration stamp) I embossed it with a retired embossing folder because I felt it needed a quiet subtle background, but I think the Softly Falling Embossing folder would work just as well. The heart is Very Vanilla and is cut with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit. I sponged the heart with Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke. The larger flowers are made Watermelon Wonder card stock which are heat embossed with white. The smaller flowers are made with Very Vanilla card stock and are inked in Watermelon Wonder. Some of the flowers are popped up with dimensionals. The banner is stamped in Always Artichoke and Watermelon Wonder and also popped up with dimensionals. i added pearls to the flowers and the lace details…
