MOJO223 and All You Need is Love

I am absolutely crazy over the color combination of black, vanilla and red, and what better to create a Valentine's Day card with? This card features a few new products from the Occasions Mini Catalog: the Take it to Heart Stamp Set, Hearts Framelits Dies and Adorning Accents Embossing Folders.

This card was created with two challenges in mind. First the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, which I must admit, I found pretty challenging! Once I got it all together, though, I was really happy with the result. All those layers add up to a really striking card.

The Paper Players Challenge inspired me to turn this sketch into a Valentine's Day card. The theme this week is simple, Love!

The only ink that was used in this card was Versamark, which was heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. After embossing, the stamped image was cut out with the Hearts Framelits Die. I cut a second heart in Real Red, then embossed with the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder.
