Love Forever Card - Second Generation Stamping

This card is pretty self-explanatory. The one technique we used is called: Second Generation Stamping. This is what we used to create the "Love" background.

What you do is this: Ink up your image and press it onto a scrap piece of paper. Then without re-inking, stamp on your card. This will give a lighter image, or a second generation image. Then you can stamp another image on top of it - this time full strength! Looks cool, doesn't it?

For this card I used:
Ink: L'Amore red Palette (TT-195)
Paper: Scarlett Cardstock (V237), light pink cardstock (V-42), white cardstock (V-290)
Stamps: Forever Family (T2952)
Other: SU scallop edge punch, ribbon, stickles
