Today’s featured card is a pretty gatefold card that can be used for encouragement or for a valentine.  Cut base cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 2 1/8 on each end of the long side and fold inward. Embossing with the Sparkle Embossing Folder adds texture and interest without adding bulk. A belly band made from the gorgeous Falling In Love designer series paper adds a soft touch of bokeh, and a dragonfly cut from Gold Foil adds the bling. And a matching gold embossed stamped dragonfly graces the inside, with plenty of room for a personal message. Check out the supply list at the bottom of this post and order everything you need today!

A clean and simple way to let someone know you are thinking of them this Valentine’s Day, and it’s only one layer. Use the stamps from January’s Paper Pumpkin kit, some Blackberry Bliss and Melon Mambo ink, some rhinestones for a little bling, and a few score lines – done!

Emboss Your Heart Out

Embossing paper adds an instant wow. Want an even bigger WOW? Emboss glass.
I had these small glass heart ornaments in my stash and turned them into these lovelies.

Quick How To

Press your Versamark Ink Pad all over the bottom half of the heart surface. Generously spoon white embossing powder over the glass Versamarked surface. Heat evenly with your heat gun. [Tip:  Don’t wave the heat gun like a blow dryer, just hover like a helicopter over one spot until the powder melts, then move to the next area.] Let cool and embellish as desired. I used my Big Shot to die cut Silver Glimmer paper and Pink Pirouette card stock snowflakes. A brad in the center holds the layers together, and a glue dot on the back sticks the whole thing to the embossed heart. I whipped out six of these beauties in less than an hour.
