I know it's nowhere near Valentine's Day time but I've been filming the bonus projects for StampAcademy and a couple of them are "love-ly" so the "love" thinlet was staring up at me from my desk! I've been swamped with all of the extra Holiday "stuff" and I guess I may be ignoring my husband a little. I'm not a very "mushy" person but, I think the universe was trying to tell me something! LOL! So, here's my "love" card. If you need Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas – You can GET THEM HERE. Tomorrow begins my "Year In Review" so definitely check back to see some of the most popular projects and lots of BLOG CANDY!
The base card is a half sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock (4 1/4 x 11) scored in half and folded. The next layer is also Crumb Cake Cardstock (#120953). It was distressed and run through the BigShot (#113439) in the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder (#125601)and then sponged with Chocolate Chip Ink (#126979). A strip of Burlap Ribbon (#132140) was wrapped around the top layer and Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding (#120992) was used to create the Double Bow (See Video HERE). The Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)) were used to cut the heart from Blushing Bride Cardstock (#131198). The heart was adhered to the cardstock using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The "love" was cut using the Expressions Thinlets (#132171) *Tip: Use wax paper between the thinlet and the cardstock for easy removal. It was adhered to the heart using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).
I snuck 3 pearls (#119247) on to offset the "grunge" of the card. All supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be found in my ONLINE STORE and delivered right to your door! Want Exclusive Samples to your Inbox? Sign up HERE.
