Love Always

Hi, everyone!  I'm back with another card to share.  I made this one for Brian as a Valentine from Snowie, may she rest in peace.  You will notice a representation of our little Snowie at the bottom.  

I stamped and coloured the kitty with markers, fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape, and then set her aside while I made the background.  I applied several washi tapes to a white panel along with a scrap sentiment left over from this card.  I stamped the tiny hearts above the washi tape with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide and then embossed the panel with the heart pattern.  I adhered the kitty and added three punched hearts made from a scrap of red glitter cardstock.

Digital stamp:  Snippet/scrap left over from this card using STAMPlorations Love A2 Card Fronts (freebie until Feb. 28 - thank you, Shery!)
Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Cross My Heart
Other:  Washi tape (various), small heart punch, scrap of red glitter cardstock
