Sweet Valentine Card

Hi bloggers!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner this card is a great choice for your sweetie. 

I used Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress ink on the Valentine Silhouette set from Stampers Anonymous. After inking the stamp, I spritz it with a little water then stamped it on the front of my card. Once the ink was dry I embossed it with the matching texture fade. Lightly inked the edges of the card with Worn Lipstick using an ink blending tool and foam.
Now use the mini Love Struck set and die cut the cupid and heart form grunge board. Paint the cupid with Barn Door distress stain and the heart with Snow Cap acrylic paint dabber. Let dry. Spray the cupid with Forever Red - Perfect Pearl mist and the heart with Perfect Pearl - Perfect Pearl Mist and let dry. You can use a Heat-It Tool to speed up the dry time. 
Add a doily (i inked under the doily first with Worn Lipstick distress ink on my ink blending tool) You could also use the distress doily die from the alterations line. Wrap bakers twine around the card add a key and tie with a bow. 

Send it to someone special. They have the key to your heart! 

Enjoy your day~ Richele
