Some Embossed Valentines

When I saw this gorgeous embossing folder, I knew I had to have it!  It came earlier this week, and here are 3 cards I made with it.  These new super-thick 3D folders make beautiful impressions!

supplies: white and a white-core pink cardstock, Memory Box Open Studio Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder, Spellbinders Scalloped Heart die, sentiment from (retired) Simon Just a Love Note

I embossed regular heavy white cardstock first, then did the same to a white-core pink cardstock which I first cut into this scalloped heart shape, then sanded to bring out the details.  This is so pretty that I didn't want to cover up any part of it, so I chose this teensy sentiment from a retired Simon Valentine set.

Next I used a glimmer cardstock.

supplies: white and DCWV Shimmer Pastel cardstock, Memory Box Open Studio Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder, MFT (retired) Blueprints 20 stitched banner, Spellbinders Tammy Tutterow (retired) Sew Tiny Sentiments, Altenew Cotton Candy mini ink cube from Four Scoops set

And card number 3:

supplies: white, black, and a darker pink shimmer cardstock, Heart Bouquet 3D embossing folder, Spellbinders (retired) scallop heart die, Simon's Love 2 die, stamped sentiment from a retired Winnie & Walter Big Bold stamp set, Penny Black Stitched Stackers die, Rainbow heart sprinkle, adhesive foam 

This time I cut the heart from a trimmed panel, edged it, added my sentiments and then lifted it above a portion of the design embossed on shimmer card.

Hope you're having a good Sunday - thanks for stopping by!
