Valentine Card, Off to the Races, by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 002

"Red is one of my favorite colors so I love to use it when creating anything related to Valentine’s Day!  And I love roses.  Which means when I set out to make a Valentine Card for Graphic 45 that I went with the beautiful papers in the 8x8 Off to the Races pad.  Such gorgeous roses in that paper collection and such lovely ladies too—all with a romantic, vintage look.  I decided to use a gorgeous found silver metal photo frame to showcase some of the paper roses and altered it along with the Graphic 45 Door Plate & Knob by using sparkly silver embossing powders.  I love how it worked on these two pieces and hope you’ll have a try at experimenting with different mediums.  Happy Crafting!" ~Sandy

Tip: Don’t be afraid of altering metal pieces such as the Graphic 45 door plate and knob.  The easiest way to do this is by dabbing the piece with embossing ink (I use an embossing dabber) and then sprinkling the piece with the chosen embossing powder.  Use tweezers to hold one end of the metal piece as it can get really hot when heating and melting the powder with your heat gun.
