Hugs & Kisses

Love Impressions Designer Series Paper makes it easy to get a nice background on your Valentine's Card.
It comes in 12 sheets, 2 each of 2 single-sided embossed designs on cover-weight paper, and 2 each of 4 double sided designs on text-weight paper. 

For today's card I started with a card base of Basic Gray cardstock, followed by a matte layer of one of the double sided papers that was cut in half and each side displayed.   The Basic Gray scallop was cut with the Big Shot Machine using the large scallop on the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz die, and for extra texture I also embossed it using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.    The sentiment in the center is from the Love You Much stamp set.  To add some more sparkle to the center scallop I heat embossed the little dots with silver embossing powder.
