DIY Valentine's card idea

Yes—Valentine's Day is still a more than a month away, but during the snowstorm this past weekend, I made a trip to one of my favorite Brooklyn card shops, and decided to get a little crafty! The main reason: Have you heard about heat embossing? It's what gives cards that elegant, raised, dimensional effect. All you need is a stamp of your choice (I chose this one), embossing powder, this heat tool, and watermark ink. You stamp your design onto the card, cover it with powder, dust it off (you can save and reuse the excess powder so it lasts a long time), and then seal with the heat embossing tool. Voila! A beautiful handmade card to give to your sweetie, your sister, or your friends. :)

So pretty, right? Would you try this craft?
