Red, White, Black Vday card

I so did not use my cricut for this card but I did use some new products and a new technique that has begun to spread.

I am entering a CardzTV color challenge use only Red, White, and Black.

I am seriously supper happy beyond words how cute/lovely this card turned out!

Here is a look at the products I pulled out, I used the 2 heart punches and the single L O V E wood mounted stamps. Also 3 different heart cling stamps.
Didn't use glue dots but just in case I had them out. The pop dots are circles today.
Look at that pretty Stampin Up ink pad in Real Red. LOL. I didn't use the banner die.
Making 2 cards at ounce. Red base, 2 white layers (one for inside and one for outside), and the black mat. Standard size card.
White colored pencil and ruler to make the outline of the chalkboard.
One of the hearts to act like the little ties for the LOVE banner. drew a white pencil line first then did the hearts and then the LOVE letters.

Let dry, next time I will heat set, THIS TAKES LONG LONG to dry.
Finished Card. LOVE IT.

The two hearts are stamped in Real Red ink and used the two hear punches to punch them out
and did some fussy cutting to finish them. Big one is on a foam circle while little is just attached with adhesive.

Matted first with the white, 1/4 of an inch border around.
Inside again white mat with 1/4 of an inch border around. I stamped the sentiment in the Real Red ink as well with a stampin up stamp. Heart punch in the top for some somethin.

Used a sponge dauber and gently sponged around to give the chalkboard effect.
