Make It Monday #101: Layered Embossing and a Puppy!

It has been a very exciting week here at my house!  One week ago today we added a new addition to our family.  I guess three human children wasn't enough to keep me busy, I needed a puppy!  Let's just say I couldn't resist this:
Her name is Sophie (after much deliberation amongst 3 children) and she is a 10 week old Havanese.  She is a sweet dog with a great disposition and so smart.  It didn't take long for her to weasel her way into our hearts and my parents have threatened to puppynap her several times!!  We are enjoying our new addition!
Ok enough about puppy, on to my card for this week's Make It Monday challenge!  Of course being addicted to card making, I sat Sophie on a chair next to my craft table and got her input on this week's challenge!  We did very well together!  I love embossing and I never thought of embossing several colors over each other so I really had fun this week.  I dug out an old unity stamp set that I have and got to work.  I made a criss cross card and did some embossing on the insert.  I heat embossed the hearts with white powder and I embossed the "sweet love" sentiment in silver powder.  I just love the results! The envelope part of the card is so pretty with PTI papers, a doily and some scrumptious roses!!!
Here are a few images for you:
Have a great day everyone!
I already am!


  1. Oh Lisa the new baby is precious! Trying to talk my husband into one. Love the coloring on your sweet Valentine card. Darling the way the hearts dangle.

  2. Oh my goodness! This card and envelope is adorable! Love how you layered the sentiment over the strings of hearts!
