Valentine Cards With Rosettes

Valentine Rosette 2

I love rosettes.  They seem to go perfectly with Valentine’s Day crafts.  The paper called “Adore” by Authentique made very pretty rosettes.  As usually happens to me I had a few unexpected problem.  I used pink heart brads to fasten the vellum to the first card so that adhesive wouldn’t show through the vellum.  But I did this as my final step and the brad backs were visible on the inside of the card.  (I covered them up with paper hearts.)  Another problem was that as I was heat embossing the vellum bits of the embossing powder clung to the vellum around the stamp.  I tried blowing on it and tapping the vellum on the table but I couldn’t get rid of the extra sprinkles.  If anyone has a way to get rid of these extra sprinkles I would appreciate hearing about it.
