Be Mine

Happy Monday!  It's great to be starting a new week - hopefully one that will be healthier for our family!  It's time to start thinking about the big Lovey holiday which is actually one of my favorite holidays to make cards for! I don't know what it is but Valentine's Day cards, or love cards in general are so much fun to make!

It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I pulled out an old set I haven't used in forever, 3 Step Adornments.  I also used Clean and Simple Stamping's FTL#172.

This is actually one of those cards that's so much prettier IRL.  It's very difficult to photograph, but I die cut a scalloped heart from clear acetate just larger than the red heart and then embossed it for texture.

It really does look neat!   The lock and key were stamped as follows: Step 3 - (Black) Versafine, Step 2 - (Going Gray) SU, Step 1 - (Going Gray - stamped off).  The sentiment was embossed and is from another KSS set, Words of Love, which is really an awesome set for this time of year! :)

Black, white and red are so striking together don't you think?  Please visit the other KSS Crew members today! Thanks for visiting! :)
