Step 1. Let's make our background. These alcohol ink backgrounds are so easy and dry almost instantly. Here's the tutorial from Tims blog. I tend to make several of these at a time.
Step 2. I wanted to add some texture to the background. I laid down my stencil so that the texture would go from the top right corner toward the middle. The Ferro is a thick texture paste and is quite pretty. I spread an even layer over the stencil using a palette knife. Wash your stencil and knife right away as this paste will ruin them if it dries on.
Step 3. Add Stick-It adhesive sheets to each cardstock and trim excess. Die cut friend from the foiled vellum. My vellum has a tiny gold heart pattern on it. Die cut the heart from the black velvet cardstock and punch out all the tiny negative pieces. Die cut hearts from gold foil cardstock.
Step 4. Once the paste is dry, stamp the hearts from the set in gold ink and emboss with gold embossing powder. Stamp the sentiment in black.
Step 5. Add 1/2" Scor-tape to the back of the inked panel. Remove one strip of backing and lining up properly, attach to the cardbase. Remove the rest of the backing strips. Add black heart, friend and gold hearts where desired, removing the backing paper and pressing down. Our card is complete!
