Belt Buckle

This is the card I used for my swap at the American Ink demo meeting last weekend.  There were 16 ladies at the meeting!  Such fun.
This card has all kinds of things on it.  I started with the You Are Loved stamp and the heart from Lovely Little Labels.  I used the same two stamp sets for the M&T I posted earlier.  It seems like I forget about the smaller Adorning Accent embossing folders, but they are perfect when you want a small portion of something embossed.  The heart folder is perfect for Valentine's Day.  The small heart from Lovely Little Labels on the front of the card was stamped in VersaMark ink. 
The belt buckle opening was made with the Word Window punch. Aligning it was a little challenging for me, so my 'belt' isn't perfectly in the middle of the opening, but I think it's such a cute idea!  It is also the perfect spot for the stamp design which coordinates with the Decorative Label punch.  I have quite a stash of the largest pearls from our Pearl Basic Jewels, so I decided to use the large pearls on this card. 
The inside of the card is where I stamped the sentiment, which is also from the You Are Loved stamp set.  My husband, Chris, is the absolute love of my life.  This will be his card for Valentine's Day.
