Together Forever

Ok - so I'm moving on to the next holiday -  Valentine's Day!  I just love making Valentine's - love the red, white and black color combination, lacey doilies, hearts - love it all!  Two stamping friends and I also have a Valentine's Day sale at our church in the beginning of February so I have to get going on my stash of cards!
I made this card for the Addicted to CAS  Code Word: Die Cuts. (boy, even their challenge sign is in the right colors for Valentine's!)
I used a 'together' die from PTI and 2 Nestability Heart dies.  I used plain white cardstock for my card base but layered a Bazzill white panel on top to give a little texture to the background.  I layered the hearts with foam tape and adhered the 'together' onto the panel with a glue pen.  Then I just added some winter blend sequins from Avery Elle using Glossy Accents as adhesive..

Here's what I stamped on the inside -  the stamps are from My Heart and Seasons of Love, two sets from Waltzingmouse.
That word 'forever' sometimes scares guys away (!) so you have to be sure of the person you're giving this card to!! (like you're already married to him kind of sure!) LOL!!

Stamps:  Forever and heart from My Heart, Be Mine...Valentine from Seasons of Love - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white, true black, pure poppy - PTI, white - Bazzill
Ink:  Ranger Distress Fired Brick, Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  Heart Nestability dies - Spellbinders, wonderful words Together die - PTI, winter blend sequins - Avery Elle, foam dots, glue pen, Glossy Accents.
