A card for my loving husband
I made this beautiful card for my DH for Valentine's Day, wasn't he lucky?! Actually he benefitted from a couple of classes I ran so I had some spare ones, lol!
I tinted the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder with white craft ink before running it through the Big Shot, it gives a really nice subtle effect. I then stamped 'Love' from the Tiny Tags stamp set around the 2.5" circle. This was easy to do when you start at the top ('north') and then go 'south', 'east' and 'west'. You can then stamp in between those points to get an even spread.
I punched out the heart from our new glimmer paper ($8.95 for two 12" sheets) and stamped 'Amour' from the Artisitic Etchings stamp set with the white craft ink again. Finish the card off with some white organza ribbon ($11.95 for 13.7 m).
In return I got a bottle of Kahlua and some roses, so I think I did very well too!
