Sisterly Love,AHS#146




I found design #146 at Atlantic Heart Sketch, and decided to make a Valentine for my sister.  I found this sweet vintage paper in a partially used paper pack at the thrift store, and die cut three hearts.  I stamped then embossed the off white piece, and ran the paper through a second time without the folder to flatten out the pattern a bit.
 Can you believe in 1997 Stampin Up had foam stamps?! Yup, and I think they should go back to selling them as an option.  They work well, and they're a cheap alternative.  I added a little gold locket (reminiscent of childhood as well) to the center of the heart and my card is complete.

Love your vintage look! The embossed textures are very nice. Never thought of running through again to flatten - great tip! Thank you for sharing at Atlantic Hearts this week.
