Happy snowy and icy Saturday to you all. Fortunately we didn't get nine inches of snow but we did get three. The snow is not a big deal. It's all the ice that's underneath it! We started out as rain and it all froze. So we have an icy mess. My DH and I shoveled our driveway this morning but left some snow covered because of all the ice underneath. The snow will make it easier to get out if we need to.
Onto better things! My card today is for a challenge over at Melanie Muenchinger's blog Hands, Head and Heart. She challenged anyone who had her set A Year of Flowers to design a card. Up for grabs is her brand new set that will be released next week. No one has seen it but I have no doubts that it's fabulous! Also up for grabs is a guest designer spot on her blog. How fun would that be!
So I saw this very cool double embossing technique the other day and knew I had to try this out. My daughter has a wedding tomorrow and she asked me to make a card for the bride and groom. I double embossed this card, making a cardboard mat with the heart shape cut out and then using the mat I embossed with the Victoria embossing folder. Then I went back and embossed the heart shape into the spot where it would go. I added the sentiment that just happens to be from another stamp set designed by Melanie Arranged with Love and then stamped, colored and cut out the rose, stem and leaf. I just love everything about this card!
My daughter originally asked if I could put their names in the heart but the Cuttlebug alphabet that I have was too big so we added things to the inside of the card: the wedding date and their names with the Cuttlebug Harmony alphabet. My first time using them. I just found it on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
So if you by chance you have the set A Year of Flowers by Melanie, hop on over to her blog and check out this challenge! Just right for a snowy day! Thanks for stopping by. I have to get the house in order for company for the Super Bowl. GO COLTS! (I hope you Saints fans out there won't hold it against me. Although I will be wearing my Dallas Clark (44) jersey tomorrow and routing for the Colts, if we lose I don't mind losing to the Saints. I think they deserve it too!)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Warm winter hugs,
