Card #24 – Valentines day

Its almost Valentine’s day and here is the mandatory card pretty much using only the color of love! I used a whole mix of clear stamps and dies from various vendors.

Since I do not have a love themed pattern paper, I used the XO stamp from American crafts®. I stamped it all over the paper and gave it a wash with Tim Holtz® distress ink – Abandoned coral. For the sentiment, used a combination for clear stamp from Pink & Main® and Sizzix® dies. I layered the ‘love’ die thrice before coating it with red paint and applying glossy accent over it. It sure looks yummy in the close up photo below.ssn_valentine
