I could NOT bring myself to make another conventional Valentine Card. LOL! Today’s Challenge at the Dazzling Diva Design Challenge from Add A Little Dazzle was to use Chocolate Craft Metal (my personal favorite!) and Scarlet Red Craft Metal. The embossed strip is Dark Chocolate Craft Metal and I used a tiny Scarlet Red Metal Heart to offset the grunge of the card. Click the links below to play along with the challenges this week. :
The full tutorial is HERE. Hope you’re having a GREAT day! 😀
All edges were inked with Distress Ink and the inside of the card too to carry the grungy theme all the way through.
Many elements of this card were left-over from my Stash. The base card is a left-over piece stamped with a Dictionary Background Stamp. The Corrugated Strip is a left-over piece from Tim’s November Tag attempt. The Gadget Gear was a left-over too! Always make extras when you’re creating! It makes it easy to assemble something later one!
An Idea-ology Key Hole and Corner were added to the corner and front of the card.
A Gadget Gear was die cut from Grungeboard and embossed with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder, cut in half and then added to the card front.
Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to know what you think! Please leave me a comment and let me know.
