25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 19 "From the Heart"

Hi Everyone!

Today's card features some non traditional colors and elements. This was a card that looked quite easy to duplicate; but actually took a bit of patience to line up the hearts properly. I used a piece of Simon Says Stamp Khaki card stock for the base. I stamped the background using the Hero Arts "Plaid" background stamp with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink. I have to be honest and admit, I don't remember from which stamp sets I pulled the little heart stamps. I stamped them with Soft Sky (Stampin' Up!) Peacock Feather, Crushed Olive, and Worn Lipstick Distress inks.


I covered each heart with some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and also with glossy accents. You can see where I muddle the application of the glossy accents especially on the top hearts. :(
The sentiment is from Verve and I stamped it in Khaki ink.

Here are the two pictures side by side. Have a fantastic day, and I'll see you tomorrow for Day 20!
