Valentines Blog Hop Week Three
It is week three for the Valentine Blog Hop! Haven't you just loved all the new creative ideas posted by everyone! I feel so inspired! And Challenged to add more to my cards.
This is the card that I chose to enter into the hop this week.
I started with a basic black piece of cardstock. The next layer is something called Shimmer Sheetz that I purchased from a local craft store. I used a sanding block to sand off some of the Shimmer and this makes it clear and distressed looking. You can see the black cardstock through the sheet and I love the look of it! I embossed this sheet with Heart Blocks from cuttlebug, but it can be used with your Big Shot!!
Next I used the Heart Framelits to create a black heart and then stamped it with Whisper White and a stamp from PS I love you. I cut out some hearts with the small heart Framlits and then ran them through the Hearts adorning accents folder. Next I cut out some Glimmer Hearts silver and stamped out some tags and punched them out too! I tied all of these on with Red and White Bakers Twine. I added a piece of Organza Ribbon too.
Inside the card is a piece of WW and I stamped the same image from the front in Real Red and a saying from Delightful Dozen!
Hope you enjoyed this card!
