Sponge tattered rose, milled lavender, and dusty concord inks onto manilla tag.

Stamp I Love You Alphabet three times with vintage photo ink, let dry or use a heat tool to dry.

Stamp Harlequin background with Versamark ink and emboss with clear powder. Sponge over tag with aged mahogany. At this point you can choose to leave the embossing or you can place the tag between paper and iron it to remove the embossing powder (I removed the embossing powder). Tear the bottom of the tag off and rub edges with vintage photo ink. Layer tag on black cardstock. Set aside.

Stamp Real love stories on natural cardstock with aged mahogany ink, tear edges, sponge edges with tattered rose ink and layer piece to black cardstock. Set aside.
For the background, tap the milled lavender and tattered rose ink pads onto a craft mat, spray with water, lay natural cardstock in ink, pick back up and dry with a heat tool. Repeat using tattered rose and aged mahogany ink pads, dry. If there are any areas without enough color, sponge on extra color. Layer background to folded black card.
Sponge grundgeboard letters with aged mahogany ink. Dry emboss the letters using the Cuttlebug folder and die cutting machine. Lightly rub black soot ink over letters so that you only get ink on the embossed areas.

Color ribbon with aged mahogany ink and iron between paper to set ink.

Assemble card as shown.
