Paw Print on my Heart

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the wonderful and talented Laurie is our hostess with a great color challenge.

My son tucked this cute paw print stamp into my Christmas stocking last Christmas, and I thought it would be fun to use it to make a Valentine for him. I tried to keep the card masculine, or at least as masculine as you can make a Valentine. The paw print is heat embossed with black embossing powder. It is super shiny IRL, but I forgot to take a photo of the shine and now this card is already on its way to him!

Stamp Sets: Paw Print (Momenta), I Knead You (My Favorite Things)
Card Stock: Ivory, Black (Simon Says Stamp), Desert Storm (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Beloved (Authentique), I See You (My Minds Eye)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Versamark
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Stitched Square Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder (WOW)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

I like the layout of your card and the papers you've picked work so well together. Very cute stamp - I'm going to have to tell my kids more strongly that stamp gifts are good, I think!
