Valentine Greetings

Greetings this is my first design of the new year.  I first die cut the Floral Oval then removed the piece and ran the Classic Oval die through  my machine to cut out  the center. I embossed the background and reattached the Floral Oval.  I attached the Curvy Leaves behind the oval and the small Carnation flowers to the front.  To the center of each flowers I added Hot Kiss Pink Glitter.  I added the ribbon banner after I die cut it in white and twice in pink so I could create the shadow effect.  I added a little yellow ink to the birds wings and attached as shown.  Before I attached the front to the white card stock I added some mounting tape to give the design a little dimension.

Art Glitter - Hot Kiss #87 glitter
Cuttlebug - Kassie's Brocade
Elizabeth Craft - Curvy Leaves
Heartfelt - Small Camellia Carnations
Memory Box - Peace Doves
Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, Floral Ovals & Ribbon Banners

When I was in Nuremberg I purchased some Springerle wooden cookie molds.  I still don't have the recipe correct but I am getting better at getting the design to show up after they are baked.
