Follow Your Heart
It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and this week Beate has challenged us to create a card for someone you love and the only requirement is that it has to have red on/in it.
You can play too, and every week Flourishes has a drawing for a lucky participant who will win a $10 GC to their store. Please play along and maybe you could win :) You will find all the details in their Timeless Tuesday BLOG POST :)
A Simple sounding card, yes? No, not for me. The first card did not turn out like I planned, so I redid it and decided to make a simple card with little embellishment to let my sentiment stand out.
I used Flourishes "Life Lines" stamps set stamped in Brilliance "Moonlight White" ink and embossed in white embossing powder on The Paper Company "Weave Wine" cardstock, paired with Flourishes "Classic White" cardstock. I used the following Spellbinders layered together: Hearts, Lacy Circles, Circles, Square, and Labels #3. I used my Spellbinders "Flourish Empressabilities" on my white cardstock, under my heart, that I popped up with a popdot. Then I added some Crystal bling from Prima on it for something different then my usual favorite, pearls.
I had a little bit of difficulty getting my sentiment to stamp out nicely since my red CS had such a texture on it, but other then that bump, it all came together pretty quickly. I like the look of clean cards, but I struggle making them. They just look so bare, but less is more, right? :)
