My CC302 challenge card to use Black, White and Red with hearts as the Dessert option. I used Roxie's SC312 for the layout, which worked out great.
I used my new SU Letterpress Lots of Love Plate, which is in the Holiday and Occasion Mini's. I did not have Craft Red ink so I inked my plate 1st with Versamark and then inked with my Real Red ink pad. I then stamped on 140# watercolor paper to get a deeper debossed look. I really like the results. I had some extra trim so I cut out the love to attach to my Glimmer Paper Heart from the new Occasions mini. Now that Glimmer paper is COOL stuff. I cut the large heart with my SU Embozzlits Scalloped Heart of Hearts. I punched the little heart with my SU heart small punch. The DP is the new Specialty DP Love Impressions from the Occasions Mini. This was just such a fun card to make using new and old toys.
Enjoy and TFL....and thanks Joanne and Roxie for making my creation so much easier with your inspirations. Merry Christmas to all.....
I am adding my card to the new SU Demo's Creative Crew 2011 Challenge. This is the January Holiday Seasonal Focus "Hearts".

Very cool Nancy. I can't seem to break out of Christmas card mode - I hope I am not stuck. I so wish you were here to explain that letter press stuff. I love this card and the look is really cool.
