Hello! It’s Jill from Jill Cameron Creations with a simple Valentine. It’s the last day of this crazy year so I hope the new year brings you joy. Let’s take a look at this card. The video is super quick so you can take a break from what ever you’re doing and rest for a moment.

The color pallet for this simple Valentine is traditional pinks. The cardstock is more of a warm pink to go with the beautiful rose gold embossing. Also incorporated with these two colors is a bold fuchsia, red, and copper.

First, treat the pink cardstock with anti-static powder to prevent embossing powder from sticking in random places.

Next, using Color Hive Embossing Ink, stamp the Watercolor Hearts Background stamp. Coat each heart with rose gold embossing powder. If you don’t have rose gold, use pink, gold, red, or white. This particular rose gold embossing powder has a touch of texture to it which really catches the light.

The die cut heart is from an old Spellbinder’s monthly kit. Use whatever die cut heart you have in your collection. I layered the heart then tapped it on several different pink pads to give it a bit of a distressed look.

The I stamped the sentiment in the same dark pink ink. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Magnolia stamp set. This is stamped on white cardstock and trimmed down to the perfect rectangle to layer on top of the die cut heart.

To finish off this card I added sequins in clear, pearl, red, and copper all over the front. I learned a trick from another crafter to add drops of Glossy Accents to the inside of sequins. It gives them a little more shine to this simple Valentine.
