variety of brown cardstock
MSRS Mini Heart stamp
MSRS Orient Express embossing powder (or similar brown)
Versamark pigment inkpad (or any pigment pad you have)
MSRS Mini Heart die cutter (optional)
any embossing folders you like
Cuttlebug embossing machine (or whatever one you have will work too)
Viva-Decor Pearl Pen (dark brown)
foam mounting tape
Make a folded card measuring 5'X7" from your darkest brown cardstock. Line the inside with a pale brown cardstock for writing a sweet message.
Emboss a 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of dark brown cardstock using your favorite embossing folder pattern and an embossing machine.
Tap the surface of the embossed piece all over with the pigment inkpad. Sprinkle with Orient Express embossing powder and heat. Layer the embossed piece onto a lighter color frame measuring 4 3/4" X 3 3/4". Apply foam mounting tape to the back and attach to the folded 5" x 7" card.
Stamp and emboss some Mini Hearts onto dark cardstock using the Orient Express embossing powder. Cut them out with scissors or use the MSRS Mini Heart die cutter. Use other brown colors to make additional hearts.
Using your paper cutter, make a 5 1/2" x 1/8" "stem" for each heart. Tape the stems to the back of each heart.
Gather the hearts into a bouquet and tape them together just below the lowest heart in the bunch. Tie ribbon around the bouquet to hide the tape. Add foam mounting tape to the back of each heart and place the bouquet over the embossed background piece on the front of your folded card.
Happy Valentines Day - Enjoy!
