Catching up

Here are the cards I made for a "variety" winter/Valentine card class which I can now share. The first one uses heat embossing on the tag and dry embossing with the Cuttlebug on the background. I like the unusual color combo for winter - turquoise, white and red with a touch of silver.

This uses a watermark red background, Perfect Pearls in the black background and red foiling (hard to see) just above the white eyelet border.
I like this combination of the kraft and pink colors. The heart is stamped, then covered with double-sided tape sheet, cut out and sprinkled generously with iridescent ultrafine glitter. It's gorgeous in real life!

The last card uses Distress Ink for stamping on the white background. On the top layer, the flower and leaves were stamped in Versamark and clear embossed on white; then Distress Ink was sponged all over - the embossed image resists the ink so when the excess is wiped off, the image "pops."
