Valentine with Lots of Texture!


I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day. Once I got going on making it, I couldn't stop adding texture!!

One thing I really liked using was the Lots of Love Letterpress Plate. At first I didn't really like using it - I think because I thought you had to use the Craft Ink and make a big mess. But now that I figured out that you can just run them through like a Texturz Plate - get the impression, and sponge it to pop the image - I really like it!!



Here's a close-up of the Espresso brads stuck on top of a 1/4" Glimmer Paper circle. I got inspiration from my stampin' buddy Liz, who did that little layering of the circle with the brads - a fun detail!


And here's lots more Glimmer with the heart and Scallop Trim Border. I did lots of Shimmer Spray too!


And I added a Glimmer Brad to the Happy Valentine's Day banner to bring together all the glimmer!


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie
