Belated Valentine Cards

Just a few cards  I made for my niece and nephew who are away at college, but they could also be used as Valentine cards.

For both cards, I used the heart from the flower stamp in the  I'm Owl Your's Open Studio Stamp Set by Memory Box.

I stamped the heart with VersaMark embossing ink on a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of vellum that was folded in half to make the card base.  Then I heat embossed with some very fine gold embossing powder.  I used my MISTI to line up the hearts on the second card.

To color the hearts,  I used some Copics and colored from the back side of the vellum.

These are the Copics I used for the purple hearts:

The Happy Happy Happy is by Frantic Stamper.  I cut it on some metallic gold paper that best  matched the gold embossing powder.  The "hugs" and "kisses" are also by Frantic Stamper.  They are from the Accessory Words #3 set.

The ampersand is an old Sizzix die I had but there are a few ampersand dies in the Dies R Us Store.
