Here's another entry for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge which is all about...HEARTS!  This is the card I made for my hubby for Valentine's Day.  It was inspired by one I saw in Paper Crafts magazine.  (As always, click image for a larger view) 

To get the bold black embossed hearts, I first stamped the image in black ink.  Then, I stamped over the image with Versamark (this is where CTMH clear stamps have a HUGE advantage over rubber!) and embossed with black embossing powder.  When the heart cooled a little I then stamped over it again with Versamark and embossed one more time with the black embossing powder.  The result: a gorgeous, shiny embossed heart!  Here's a close-up:

And, finally, here's the inside of the card:

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper: White Daisy cardstock

Other: Black marker (Z2305), black embossing powder (Z670); Garnet glitter (Martha Stewart)
