Valentines Blog Hop Week Three

It is week three for the Valentine Blog Hop!  Haven't you just loved all the new creative ideas posted by everyone!  I feel so inspired!  And Challenged to add more to my cards.

This is the card that I chose to enter into the hop this week.

I started with a basic black piece of cardstock.  The next layer is something called Shimmer Sheetz that I purchased from a local craft store.  I used a sanding block to sand off some of the Shimmer and this makes it clear and distressed looking.  You can see the black cardstock through the sheet and I love the look of it!  I embossed this sheet with Heart Blocks from cuttlebug, but it can be used with your Big Shot!!
Next I used the Heart Framelits to create a black heart and then stamped it with Whisper White and a stamp from PS I love you.  I cut out some hearts with the small heart Framlits and then ran them through the Hearts adorning accents folder.  Next I cut out some Glimmer Hearts silver and stamped out some tags and punched them out too!  I tied all of these on with Red and White Bakers Twine.  I added a piece of Organza Ribbon too.
Inside the card is a piece of WW and  I stamped the same image from the front in Real Red and a saying from Delightful Dozen!

Hope you enjoyed this card!

Hey Girl....

That is a really cool idea to distress that paper. I had to click on it to look at it closer. I don't like that blogger don't let you look at stuff really big anymore, I wonder why they did that.!!? Your card is really beautiful, I bet it is even better in person! Thanks for being so quick on the Valenting Blog HOP!
