Love Bug - Heat Embossed Vellum Bow

Here's a throwback to those wonderful old fashioned Valentine's that had doilies on them.
The heart doily pack in the January collection is a great addition to this card. I cut the doilies in half so they'd go further and make more Valentine's to share. The berry, grapefruit plain and petite polka dot and blush cardstock work so well together. Severeal of the cardstocks are in the Hem and Hadley collection which is also available through February 14th.

 It's cheery and sweet and if you leave the sentiment off, could be sent to anyone on your list of people you love - from Grandma to granddaughter to a good friend.
A little Valentine Collection Washi adds a super easy bit of interest to your card. It's a rice paper tape so you can just tear it and put it on the card. A little bit goes a long way and is so cute!
Here's a close-up of the heat embossed vellum bow. A Hundred Wishes stamp set was used to make the lacy look. Isn't that dandelion perfect for a lacy effect? I love how this turned out. And, heat embossing with white embossing powder on vellum paper is AWESOME! The vellum paper is also the easiest to use on the mini bow. I just love it! Isn't it pretty?! And, I think it looks even better under the popped up love bug cut out from Punny Valentine. Isn't that sweet?
Here's the inside. Another simple finish to the decorated outside.A sweet and simple finish.
