 An Elegantly Simple Card!!!
Crissy has outdid herself again~~I wish I could think like her :)
I needed a 25th wedding anniversary card.....Whola!!!
First off~~I printed the Floral Heart digi quite large. Softened edges with TH Fired brick ink and Cut out with SB Scallop Heart--then did the cracked glass technique.  I don't have reinkers so........ I had to put my thinking hat on~~Hmmm.  Decided to trace cracks with Copic #24 and then took a little blender solution on a Q-tip to remove excess from enamel and it worked~~YEAH :D  It still looked alittle dull to me so I grabbed my versamark again and covered with Hallographic embossing powder and.....WOW does it sparkle Now!!!!!!!!   Popped up with foam tape and added Love sentiment that I made with shiny silver paper and my SLICE~~~I can't get enough of this fun machine :D
IRL it is so Gorgeous that I kept the card simple and only added ribbon with an elegant brad!!
Trying to catch the beautiful sparkle and shine of both paper and Image
Shows glassiness (is that a word)??? and dimension
The inside is all hearts~~~once again smaller version of Crissy's floral heart which was glitzed up with hallographic emboss powder only.  The other hearts are a $1 stamp from Michael's inked with TH spun sugar and the sentiment is SU.

Ink: TH Fired Brick-- Spun Sugar-and walnut stain; Computer; Copic and versamark

Your card is gorgeous! I love the technique you used on the heart. The pretty hearts on inside go so sweetly with the front.
