One Layer Valentine's Card

The thought of a one layer card can be a little scary! I love using patterned paper and layers in my creations. When you take all those options away it can be hard to figure out where to start. This weeks challenge at The Paper Players is to create a One Layer Valentine's Card. I decided to play along and to focus on one of my favorite techniques of embossing to create my card. The supplies for this card are very minimal. I used the Framed Tulips embossing folder, Dazzling Details, the new Flowerfull Heart stamp, classic stampin' pad in Strawberry Slush, VersaMark stamp pad, Iridescent Ice emboss powder, Love You sentiment by TPC Studios, and classic stampin' pad in Smoky Slate.  All the supplies except one stamp are by Stampin' Up! I have to admit that even without layers the sparkle and embossing on this card creates enough interest. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My One Layer Valentine's Card is entered into the following challenges:
