The new Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate is a hardworking multi-tasker that's also perfect for embossing the beautiful botanical design.  It's double-embossed here - pressure-embossed, then heat-embossed to highlight the delicate details.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline Valentine design for you.

Cut the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  Lightly spritz both sides of the heart 4 times - from about 12" away.  Let the paper absorb the water for about 30 seconds then place the smoother side of the heart onto the Blissful Heart Foil Plate and pressure-emboss it. Use the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Place the embossed heart on a smooth, hard surface and use a brayer or the direct-to-paper technique to ink the entire design with picked raspberry Distress Oxides.  Quickly heat-emboss it with Imagine's Iridescent Embossing Powder for a sparkly, glittery, glossy look.

Use a blending brush or sponge dauber to ink the edges of the heart with picked raspberry.  Sprinkle the embossing powder along the edges and heat-emboss it.

Cut the "love" portion of the Sending Love Daily Script from dark gray and bright pink cardstock - save the little pieces in the "ove."  Attach the greeting to the Blissful Heart with a liquid adhesive - I used the original Tacky Glue.

Cut bright pink cardstock with the 1-⅛" x 6-¼" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die. Cut two strips of the silver 6x6 in the Delicate Pastel Mirror Pad with the smallest slim rectangle die.

Attach the diecuts to a card of Creme Woodgrain cardstock (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamdots for the heart.  Add the lightest Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - see you again on Sunday...
