Single Heart Card

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It was very warm here today for January and I got in a nice walk after a quick trip up to the apple house to get some Golden Delicious apples.  It was probably my last trip for the season as the bins were getting low.  They keep apples in cold storage for several months after picking.  The last ones we had were wonderful.  I got a few extra to keep in the refrigerator in hopes of keeping the season going.

My card today is my parent's Valentine.  From Rainy's blog I found out about the Sisters in Christ challenge to use one significant heart on a card. Check out her blog for her fabulous submissions.

For my card, I repeated a word stamp on the background and embossed in gold on dark chocolate cardstock.  The flap is stamped with a woodblock stamp.  My heart is painted with homemade shimmer paint using some close to cocoa ink and gold Perfect Pearls powder.  After painting, I pressed a clean, clear flourish stamp onto the heart to leave an tone-on-tone look.

I have trouble photographing these multi-fold cards but I think you get the effect.  Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients:  Stamps: love background from Stampin' Up! (this is a wheel and I don't know the name of it); Woodgrain from Hero Arts
Cardstock:  Dark Chocolate from Papertrey Ink
