I have the pleasure to be this weeks hostess of the Timeless Tuesday challenge. Since today is Valentine’s Day I thought I challenge you to make a card for someone you love (Husband, Girlfriend, Mother, Child, Grandparent….) and add at least a splash of red to it.

For my sample I started by stamping the image from Sweet Nature in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die. The image was masked  and the background stamp was stamped over the image in second generation Vintage Photo Distress ink. It was colored with Copic Markers ( R00, R20, R22, R24, G40, G43, G46) and the edges were sponged first with Antique Linen, then with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

The edges of the layer were stitched before Seam Binding was tied around the lower edge. It was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Label 23 Nestabilities die.

A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the new Classic Tag Template dies. The center was sponged with Antique Linen, then a flower image from Tiny Flowers and Tags was stamped over it with the same ink. A sentiment from the same set was stamped in the center with Tuxedo Black Ink. The tag was tied to a piece of Linen Thread that was used to top the bow with a button.

The edge of three pieces of the new My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper were sanded, then stitched together to form a 4 1/16″ x 5 5/16″ layer. White Crochet Lace was taped around the horizontal strip before everything was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. Rhinestones from the 72 Count Rhinestone pack and part of a Finesse Swirl finish off the card.
