So, it's been a week now and there's no sign of this flu going away! *sigh* But *smiles* that doesn't stop me from getting messy and having my mind whirl with new designs that I want to make and want to create!
This particular card was another that I made for Valentine's Day. The little "love stamp" topper was die cut using a Cuttlebug die and embossing folder onto red card. I used Co-Ordinations range of card because I wanted to sandpaper it and reveal a white core to give it an aged, distressed look. Once that was done, I handstamped a piece of white card using a Memento Dew Drop ink pad in Rhubarb and Anna Griffin's rose background stamp, which I then distressed the edges of with distress inks. I die cut a piece of black card and then matted and layered all my elements onto these lovely scratched effect backing papers from Trimcraft and finished off with black adhesive gem stones.
