Vellum Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!  
For today’s project, I was excited to break out my new Hearts Entwined stamp from My Favorite Things and try a clean and simple card.  I love the look of bright colors against dark gray, so the backdrop for my project is a notecard I made using Classic Crest card stock in Pewter.  This is a great, basic dark gray that is my new favorite neutral.

I first wanted to create a white stamped background, so using my Misti, I stamped my hearts twice on the front of my note card.  I used a strip of Post-It Tape to mask off the back of my card while stamping.

Afterward, I heat embossed the hearts using white embossing powder.
Next, I stamped the hearts on some thin vellum using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then heat embossed those using clear embossing powder.  You’ll want to use a thinner vellum, like CTI Glama Natural Transluscent Vellum.  This will allow the Copic coloring to show through better.  
I flipped the vellum over and colored each heart using a variety of the Fluorescent Copic marker colors.  These look super bright, but on vellum, they’re just right.

After trimming out my stamped hearts, I wanted to pop them up really high, so I used some 3D glue dots.  They come flatter, but I rolled them up a little so they would stand higher.  
I added the heart panel over the white hearts along with a heat embossed sentiment above. 
I love those bright hearts against the gray!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  Be sure to head over to the CutCardstock shop to see the sale on Classic Crest and Linen cardstock.
