Before embossing the background with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, I lightly added Pear Pizzazz Ink with a Blending Brush.

Both images are stamped on Shimmery White with Versamark Ink and heat set with Silver Embossing Powder using the Heat Tool.   They are water colored with a Water Painter.  If you have not used a Water Painter, I encourage you to do so.  This technique makes you feel like a real artist!!  The images are then die cut and stacked on the card front with Dimensionals.

Red Rhinestones, red ribbon, and the sentiment are the finishing touches!!
