Valentine for hubby

Here's the Valentine I made for my hubby Mike.  I made the roses - each one took about forty minutes to complete.  I used the Spellbinders create a rose die on red paper.  Once cut, I then swiped my Whisper White Craft Ink on the edges of each petal, randomly.  Then dipped each petal into white embossing powder and heat set.  Then I could assemble them.  Tweezers were necessary in the process.  Its finicky work but I love the result, and this way I don't have to buy my roses, and can do them in any colour from my stash of paper!
I made the banner by hand after I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.  Inside is pretty nice too, I think!  Of course I wrote a whole bunch of mushy stuff afterwards, but that's between me and hubby!  Stamps are from a Graphics 45 Hampton Art, a set of ten Valentine images and sentiments.  Its the perfect set for this particular day, I think!
I used some Spellbinder flourishes and also some from Whimsy Stamps - Vines and Large Leafy Flourish, which I trimmed to fit where I wanted.  Also a Memory Box heart too. Its hard to tell from the photo, but the top layer has some dimension, and the sparkly heart is actually inset on the bottom layer. Looks better in real life, they always do!
Happy Valentine's day, and thanks for visiting!! Be blessed in God's amazing love for you today!
