Tic Tac Toe Red and Purple Valentine

red-purple-embossed-mini-heart-valentine

For this background, I repeatedly embossed the multiple heart die from last year’s Simon Says Stamp February 2016 Kit onto red cardstock using an embossing pad (silicone).  It took quite a few passes through the Big Shot (15?) to fill the red cardstock (layer for an A6 card – 4 1/8 x 5 3/4 inches) with embossed hearts, but I am pleased with the way it turned out. The layer behind the red layer is Curious Metallic Virtual Pearl (from a sample pack I bought), and at some angles, it has a violet tinge to it. (Of course, I was never successful trying to photograph said tinge!)

Here is the multiple heart die:
