Cool Colors for a Valentine

Home made Valentine Card with Adorning Accents Texture EmbossingWhat's your favorite color for Valentine's Day? A Valentine doesn't always have to be red or pink. The hearts on this card are lookin' good in Crisp Cantaloupe.

This card is a pretty simple design: a strip of Designer Paper down one side and 3 hearts arranged vertically. The thing that dresses it up is the texture embossing and the rhinestones.  

Stampin'UP!'s rhinestones are self-adhesive, which I really appreciate.  It would be such a challenge to try to apply adhesive to such a small embellishment.

The vertical line of embossed scallops was created with one of the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders.  Its a simple addition to the card, but "wow!" it really makes a difference in how sophisticated the card looks.

The finishing touch is the petite little flower on the middle heart. The flower was made with a new punch: the Petite Petals Punch.

So what do you think of the color?  acceptable?  This card would look good in red or in a strong pink.   Leave me a comment below.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've been inspired
