Sharing the Love

Good morning everyone.
Valentines Day is just around the corner so I thought I'd share a card that would be perfect for that special person in your life.

 
These are the Groovi Plates that I used for this project.



 
 
Firstly I used the nested Deckle Square plate and embossed a border using the smallest ball tool.
Next I chose my sentiment and embossed the words.
If you look closely at the Rose Plate, you can see that on the rose that is positioned at the bottom of the plate, there is a perfect "heart" within the petals.
I used this to create another border within the deckle border.  Leave enough space at the bottom to put in the rose.
After embossing the hearts and the rose it was time to think about the background.  I have used the trellis plate but changed it up a bit.  I have only embossed the design in one direction.  Inbetween the embossed rectangles I have embossed a small circle.  I did this freehand but if you would prefer to use a plate, there is a perfect circle on the Border plate that came in set 1 & 2.
 
 
I have coloured the border, hearts and rose on the back of the parchment using a distress marker. I have also added some embossing on the rose to give more depth to the flower.
 
Please let me know what you think of the card and if any of you try this, I would love to see what you do.
 
Have a lovely day.
