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.

I started paper crafting in 1995 when I first tried embossing with powder, I was so excited and couldn't believe it was so easy to make something so beautiful. Creativeseconds was started as a way of selling secondhand craft supplies and cards on Ebay and Etsy. You will find creative cards, tags, and paper crafting projects here as well as craft room organizational ideas. Follow along with me and comments are welcomed and appreciated.
