My Steampunk Heart Beats for You

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome to the Lost Coast Portal - Laurie here with a card for the current challenge:  Love and Hearts.  It's almost Valentine's Day, so show your love and make something special for someone special!

This card was made with the Steampunk Heart stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Loopy Background stamp, also from Lost Coast.

I began by heat embossing my heart onto some red background paper I made awhile ago.  I used gold embossing powder, and when dry, I cut out my heart.  I then took a piece of gold card stock
and, using the Loopy Background stamp, heat embossed that with gold embossing powder.  I like the effect of the gold on gold - subtle but really pretty I think.

I layered my gold square atop a red square and attached my heart right in the center with foam tape to raise it up a bit.  I added a few ruby gemstones to the heart for a finishing touch.

We would love to see your romantic creations here on the Portal, so be sure to enter this challenge by the 14th for a chance to win some free stamps!
