Love You- Two in One!
“Love is in the Air” with Valentine’s Day approaching and I thought I would take the time to create at least one Valentine’s Day card (although this may be a bit feminine for my husband).
I decided to use the Friday Mashup FM42colors (I love the colors that Rita chose but I have not mastered paper piercing yet to "Mash It Up" :-) along with the great FMS18 Freshly Made Sketch from Linda. Both sites have terrific designers and the samples are just gorgeous! If you have the time, check them out!
Using Versamark™ ink, stamp the floral image and the sentiment from Creative Elements onto Blushing Bride and Riding Hood Red cardstock. Heat emboss using Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired from SU! years ago- I need to use all of these colors up since I just read that embossing powder does have a shelf life).
Once cooled, carefully cut out the flowers and mount onto a panel of Blushing Bride that has been stamped with the scroll image from Creative Elements (I just love this stamp set!).
Use the Big Shot™ with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions™ Folder and emboss a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock (I love embossed Early Espresso cardstock- it looks like dark chocolate:-)).
Assemble the card according to the sketch and add the pearls to finish.
Stamp Sets: Creative Elements
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot™, Elegant Lines Textured Impressions™ FolderHeat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired), Pearls, 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired)
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you can “play” along with some of the weekly challenges this week!
