My card tonight was one that I thought would be really easy to make and I had to start over 3 times before I got a viable card.
The background was made by inking a new embossing folder that I received today as blog candy from my buddy Debbie (waving hi!) It's from the Sizzix Damask Set. I used Fired Brick distress ink and then spritzed it with water before embossing. I backed it with red card stock on a white base. I heat embossed the sentiment and the border with black embossing powder on vellum. The sentiment and border are from a set from Simon Says called Happy Every Day. I fastened the vellum with two heart brads. I like the way this turned out even though it took me so long to get it right.
I am entering these challenges:
- Simon Says Wednesday challenge: have a heart
- Get Creative challenge: must include a heart
- House that Stamps Built: black, white and red
- Cards in Envy: from the heart
- Happy Little Stampers CAS: embossing folder stamping
I have to get my little gifts done for my co-workers for Valentine's Day. That's my next project. Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you had a wonderful start to your week. Hope to be back soon with a new project.
Hugs to you all!
