Happy Semi-Traditional Non-Standard Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day cards are not my favorite thing to make, mostly because I am so totally not a hearts-and-roses kind of person. So how about a semi-non-traditional valentine card? (Click on the picture to see a bigger version!)

As far as hearts go, I have to make an exception for the heart in the Always set. It's just beautiful and will probably 'always' be one of my favorites (*snerk*). Here I stamped it on white cardstock with white craft ink, and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I used sponge daubers and ink pads to tap color over the embossed image, overlapping the colors a smidge so they blended. Added the red accents with marker and cut it out. The rest is just squares and punches.

Ingredients (all SU!):
Stamps: Always, Happy Heart Day
Cardstock: Certainly Celery card base, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise
Ink: Craft White, Lovely Lilac, C.Celery, T.Turquoise Markers: L.Lilac, T.Turquoise, Real Red, Night of Navy
Punches: Small Tag, Ticket Corner, Scallop Edge
Other: White embossing powder, sponge daubers, Real Red ribbon, hemp twine

Thanks for visiting!

Lovely card Stacey! I have to admit I'm not a heart n roses kind of gal myself. I love to see others' creations, but can never seem to put them on my artwork in a way that I really like.
