At last I can share these two cards made for the Valentine girls in our family.
The wording/backgrounds were produced in CAP2 for both cards, and then the spray of leaves were stamped and coloured with promarkers, with H2Os over the top. (Sheena Douglas stamps and technique). The same technique was then applied to the flowers which were stamped on watercolour card. Finally I applied glossy accents to the flowers and the wording to make it even more three dimensional, and some gems to the centre of the flowers.
Ellie's card has faux matting and layering, but Katharine's had silver mirri matting before adding it to the cardstock.

This final picture shows a variation I was trying before colouring and applying glossy accents so that you can see that although the lettering looks 3D - it is even better with the gloss.
