All My Love

How about a Valentine’s card? It’s funny - I noticed when I went to work on this card I have NO red cardstock - never have… Hmmmm. So how about a Pink Valentines card.

All My Love
The heart is emboss/resist on the left and stamped in the same color ink on the right. I drew the heart on scrap paper and used that as a template to create each side. I randomly (as in sketchy around the edges only) inked up the Little Specks background stamp and then stamped on the Vanilla background. Some crumpling, sewing, distressing and inking finished up the card.

Tip - Did you know that you can punch through two pieces of cardstock using the Martha Steward edge punches - yep - at the same time. That way you can get your scallops to line up perfectly!

Happy Monday to you - I hope you find time to do something creative today!

Hi, Kat: I wanted to see ideas for the new ICS sets, and am thrilled to have found your work. All of your work is gorgeous. The scallops and rough edges on this card create a very real vintage feel, and the crackled glass technique on the Father's Day card is wonderful! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! Kris, Wadsworth, OH
