Lifetime Love

I've had this Verve set for over a year, but this is the first time I've inked it up for a card.  I really love the sentiments.  I used the latest Mojo Monday sketch and included hearts for the Diva Dare challenge.  How could I not?  The sketch had them already!  :)  (You can see other cards for the challenges here and here.)

I started off by stamping the word "love" repetitively across the red cardstock using the matching ink.  Once that was mounted on a black card base, then I embossed a strip of white cardstock with the Stylish Stripes folder by Stampin' Up and also matted it with black.

I stamped my sentiment and highlighted the word "love" with a Real Red marker.  I stamped the little arrow pointing toward the word "you" and underlined it for emphasis.  I matted the panel with black and added a black piece cut with the Labels One die underneath.  I then added small white dots along the curve.

For the hearts, I used white embossing powder on red cardstock and cut them out.  I also glued two more hearts on a white panel inside the card and stamped "Love Always" to continue the sentiment.  I really love this card.  It turned out fantastic!  My son thinks I should give this to my hubby for Valentine's Day and I think I will.  :)
