I based my design on this fun card made by Nancy Amato that I saw on Pinterest. I stayed faithful to Nancy's layout but used a black, white and red colour combo for my card and I embossed the white panel with the SU! 'Falling Petals' embossing folder - looks more like hearts to me than petals! I stamped the hearts using Real Red ink and stamped full strength and stamped off once impressions. I wanted to add some highlights to the hearts but I couldn't find a white gel pen in my craft room. I think I got fed up with them not working and threw them away! I found some watered down white acrylic paint and I used the end of an embossing stylus to add white dots to the hearts. I popped up the jars and the black bow.
Here's the inside and the envelope. Usually I place just a white panel on the inside of my coloured card bases but to make a change I matted and layered a white panel. I liked how it turned out and happily, Owen loved his card!
