Valentine for dad

Let me tell you Aaliyah, valentines for men are not so easy to pull off!
I started with the new February sketch at DCWV
And I pulled out my timeless type paper stack.
I love this stack, but quickly realized there are no red pages.
No fear, I made my own red paper!

I wanted to incorporate some of the very trendy chalkboard look that's out right now.
So I used this fab stamp that I won last week, and stamped in white to give that look.
Then for the hearts, I die cut them out, and then inked them with my distress ink pad in
Barn door. Then I embossed them, and finally I added a little bit of red staz-on around the edges.
After a little bit of twine action I mounted it all to a polka dot card base, and we are ready to 
Rock and roll!!
