   Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad  in Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick, and Festive Berries
   Ranger's Craft Sheet

   Happy Bugs Static Free Pouch
   Scotch Removable Tape

Supplies from my stash:
Glossy Cardstock, Versamark Inkpad, Pink Shimmer Cardstock, White cardstock,  BoBunny Love patterned paper, and embossing heatgun

Here is how I made this quick and fun Valentine's card.
      I cut my card base from the Pink Shimmer CS. I cut the CS to 5 1/2" x 11". I then scored at 5 1/2" to make a square base of 5 1/2"  x 5 1/2" card.
    I cut the patterned paper to 5 1/2" x 3". I adhered the patterned paper to the left side of the pink base.
    Taking my Glossy paper, I rubbed the Happy Bug StaticFree bag over it. I then stamped the larger heart border with versamark ink onto the glossy paper. I sprinkled clear embossing powder over the image and heatset the image. I did the same with another piece of glossy cardstock but used the swirly stamp from the set ( slightly smaller than the previous).

   Using Spellbinders Labels 24 dies. I matched the coordinating dies to the stamped images. Using Scotch removable adhesive, I lined up the dies and lightly taped them down.

    I diecut and embossing the images according to my eBosser.

    I placed both diecut images onto my Craft Mat. Using the Applicator and sponge pad, I rubbed each image with Distress ink. I first used Worn Lipstick on both images. Then on the larger image I used Festive Berries. On the smaller image I used Fired Brick. I wiped the embossed area with a papertowel to have a resist image.
     I stamped the phrase onto a piece of white cardstock using Memento Ladybug Ink. I the cut and embossed it with a smaller die from Spellbinders Labels 24.

     I adhered the largest diecut down on the center of the card base. The next die was turned 90 degrees and popdotted up.

      The phrase was also popdotted and placed in the center of previous diecut.
      I left the inside of the card blank from personalized.
