First Valentine - Prickley Pear

I know I haven't posted since Monday - sorry! I haven't been feeling that great, but I do have projects to share. I'll post one tonight, but I have to rephotograph the others in the morning before I can get them up.

This is the first Valentine's Day card I've made this year and I HAD to use my new stamps from Prickley Pear. I love this Hearts & Flourishes Valentine half sheet of rubber. This is a really simple card - and I went for a classic look with this one - black, white and red. I used the Pastel Embossing technique on the "Be My Valentine" sentiment because the plain white was just too....white. LOL.

I embossed the hearts with white EP on red cardstock and cut them out. The layer they are sitting on is put up on dimensionals. I used clear and red rhinestones for corner accents.

I put the Cuttlebug folder in at an angle just for something different, but I didn't like that it was so hard to see on the black cardstock, so I rubbed white over the raised spots to give it more definition.

More Valentines coming your way tomorrow so check back!

Beautiful! I love how the red hearts just pop out from the card and the cuttlebug folder at an angle is a great idea!
