You Have My Heart

I know that Valentines Day will be the next big day for cardmaking after Christmas, and who doesn't love to send cards expressing love to others, but can I just say, love is for any day!  The stamp and die set I used for my card, today, are by Simon Says Stamp from their newest Love You release!...  
I used the beautiful You Have My Heart stamp/die set. I think this heart shaped wreath is simply beautiful! I stamped the wreath in my MISTI with a gray ink, colored the flowers and leaves, put it back into my MISTI and this time stamped with versamark and then gold embossed.  I LOVE this technique for using with gold/silver embossing, as it's important to get the image colored before embossing, so the metallic embossing doesn't become colored from the markers.  I know yellow might seem like a strange choice for the roses, but I chose yellow as I'm missing my dad, and I always gave him yellow roses for his birthday, so yellow made me happy!  I dotted the berries with white Tonic drops, added one of the sentiments, from the set, and gave my green card panel some darker green stripes with a Simon background stamp, to match the leaves.  Here's a close up...
I hope you are doing great, wherever you are, on this amazing planet of ours, today!  Please stay safe!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
