It's Tickle a Teapotter week, and this week's challenge asks us to make a card using a black-and-white combination on a Valentine in the form of spots, dots, patterns, etc. I love using black and white, but find myself always wanting to sneak in a pop of red!
I started by die cutting my hearts from patterned paper. The patterned paper is pretty thin, so I also die cut some chipboard and adhered it to the paper. Using a black marker, I colored the edges so the "kraft" color of the chipboard wouldn't be seen on the card. I covered the patterned paper with Versamark using the direct-to-paper method, added clear embossing powder and heat embossed it to give the hearts a shiny finish. I die cut another heart from a piece of heavyweight white card stock, stamped my sentiment, then inked around the heart with the black marker.
I embossed a piece of red card stock with a Texturz plate, then wrapped my ribbon around the red panel. I attached the red panel to the card base and adhered my hearts using foam tape to add dimension. For extra support, I added a white liner to the inside panel and stamped it with two small hearts.
