Faux Embossing Valentine

One of today's most versatile trends is "Faux Embossing", or creating the look of an embossed background with layered papers. It is featured in both Papercrafts and Creating Keepsakes magazines right now! This week the HoneyBees Challenge over at BettyBee's Buzz will be Valentines with Faux Embossing!

So, I have created a card that is clean and simple, but packs a visual punch, in striking red and white, accented with the sparkle of Stickles.

This is what my card base looks like up close :)

These are the embellishments for the front... One white heart punched to fit, and the "True Love" and "L" cut from the Celebrate With Flourish Cricut Cartridge. Today is Monday Motivational, and I have given the entire tutorial over at BettyBee's Buzz... I hope you will check it out!

On a personal note... my missing Kitty has returned :) Hurray!!! Rusty got out of the house on Dec. 21st, and just vanished, and tonight, as I was chatting with my Sister, as she wished me Happy Birthday, I heard "Meow, Meow, Meow" and I ran to the door, and there he was on the step.... a little thinner, but no other signs of problems. His twin brother is so happy to see him, too! I can't imagine where he has been, and we've had awful weather, etc. Just so grateful that he's home!!
