You make my life Magical!

Hello fellow Crafters,

I hope everyone has had some time this year to craft and create! I was able to have some time in my studio to create a few Valentines Day! I chose this one, that I am giving to my youngest son, to share with you today.

I started my card off by cutting the cardstock layers. The card base, banners and two panels are from Bazzill smooth white cardstock. One panel and banner are from Bazzill Jade cardstock. I used stitched detail dies to cut the panels and I used a cloud embossing folder on the two white panels.

I inked and sprayed the Scroll Borders  and added versamark  randomly on the chipboard so that the embossing powder would only stick in those places. I then sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat embossed. I adhered one to the left side of my card. I used a small piece off the bottom of the second Scroll Border (come in a pack of two!) and tucked it under the top right corner of the small white cloud embossed panel.

I wanted to add some extra texture to the card layers so I inked a piece of cheesecloth and allowed it to dry. I then cut into strips and added under both the Jade panel and the small white cloud embossed panel. 

I stamped the cute dragons, heart and sentiment (MFT) with Versafine Black ink and heat embossed with Fine Detail Black embossing powder. I coloured them in, added shimmer and cut them out. Adhered them to the small white cloud embossed panel. Added the sentiment pieces and a few light pink rhinestones.
