Valentines card for my husband.

Made this card for Mr. Scrappymo!.

He always remembers special occasions like Valentines, Anniversary dates, Birthdays, etc. He pulls out the card and presents it with a flourish!

For once, I am going to be prepared and try to give him his card at breakfast.

This is another card with lots of glue and glitter...I have a few little specks of glitter on my fingers, just from photographing the card...hehehehe...He is going to be one glittery guy on Valentines!

The little heart is punched, versamark ink smeared all over it, sprinkled with embossing powder and then finally heat sealed.
Boy, that heart is so tiny and even with tweezers to hold it, my fingers felt fairly overheated when I was heating the embossing powder!

What a gorgeous card - he'll be delighted.
I have a tiny wooden peg wired to a thin dowel that I use for embossing tiny things. Another way is to temporarily stick the tiny item to a long strip of card/chipboard before heat embossing. And brads/eyelets go in a special strip of card with holes ar one end. No more burnt fingers!

My Dh is the same - I have to scramble to keep up with his card-presenting as well! Thanks for the inspiration.
