A Happy Heart

Just got this set from my most current stamp club order and I am totally loving it. I used up some scraps from a few projects that I am currently working on to make this card. I know there is a lot between now and Valentine's Day, but I couldn't resist.

This card is a gift to DH for everything that he has done for me in the past few weeks since my surgery. It was been so frustrating for me not being able to do as much as I would have liked. I spent all day working on this one just to get it the way I wanted it for him. It's never too soon to send a card to someone you love. ;)

A note...I used Crystal Effects on the heart, which was directly stamped on SU Whisper White and as it dried it crinkled and puckered quite a bit. I am thinking that a thicker cardstock would be much more benefincial when using this technique. Lesson learned. I have used it before on smaller items with no problem, but I assume it was the size of the area covered and the weight of the paper that played a role in the issue I had.

Stamps: A Happy Heart (SU), Heart Prints (PTI)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Palette Noir
Paper: White, Raspberry Fizz
Assessories: Baubles, MS Punch, Cuttlebug Polka Dots, White Gel Pen, Crystal Effects, Spellbinders Tag and Scallop Circle, Sakura Stardust Gel Pen (Clear)
