Card Details

1. Stamps are by Hero Arts. Stencil is by Simon Says stamp and die cut is by Tim Holtz/Sizzix. Gold embossing paste is by Wendy Vecchi/Ranger.
2. I die cut the Falling Hearts (by Simon Says) to create my own stencil.

I just came back from a long trip and can’t wait to catch up with more inklings and stampings. Oh, I must say this card is warm and gorgeous, with the family of orange colors and gold tiny hearts. Hope this card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.
