That's the Ticket Valentine

Today's Valentine uses another set in the Annual Catalog - That's the Ticket.  There are multiple sets in the Annual Catalog that are not holiday specific and I try to use them first when starting to make my holiday cards therefore getting the most out of each set. 

My card base of Whisper White Card Stock was layered with an additional Whisper White piece embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Before I placed it onto the card, I cut out a large heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits to create a nice spot for my smaller hearts.  The Real Red Scallop Heart is from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, and the Blushing Bride Heart was punched with the Full Heart Punch.  

My sentiment in Real Red was then punched with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and a Pearl and a bow of Blushing Bride 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon were added for more embellishment.  A simple card, yet I feel the contrast in colors really makes it stand out. 

The following were used:
Card Stock:  Whisper White #100730, Real Red #102482, Blushing Bride #131198
Stamp Set:  That's the Ticket #131946 w or #128075 c
