Tis The Season For Hearts!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all having a great Thursday!
There's a new challenge on the DRS Designs blog and this weeks theme is Hearts! I created the card below for the challenge. I guess it could be a Valentines Day card even though it doesn't say Happy Valentines Day, or an anniversary card would be appropriate as well.
I admit, the technique and layout idea are not my own. I cased a card I received a long time ago from a friend on the Stamp-Shack, who has passed away. I've been meaning to case her card for a while, but I just never had the right stamps/inspiration to create it until now.

The first thing I did was stamp the Love Is Patient (201H) saying on glossy cardstock with red ink. Once it was dry, I cut it out and inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distressing Ink. I then stamped the Filigree Heart (599E) using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then to make it stand out against the glossy cardstock, I sponged on top of the heart again with the Worn Lipstick ink.

Doesn't the heart look really nice sponged this way? I matted this piece with black cardstock and embellished it with a punchie from the SU! Word Window Punch and a red heart brad. I used red cardstock for the card base and stamped the lower front side of it with the Heart Drops image (344K).

This is such a simple card, yet it has so much detail. I hope you enjoyed seeing it!

Good luck in the heart challenge if you decide to play! Check out what DRS Designs is giving away for the prize HERE!
