Cuttlebug ValentinePosted: February 8, 2009
This heart is the first stamp I have from the new catalog. I didn’t have a heart stamp so I decided to get this beautiful one. Simple though this card is, it took me forever! I had hoped to post it a few days ago but I just couldn’t work out what was missing. I changed orientation, added words, removed the ribbon, etc, etc. As it turned out all it needed was the embossed background; I had been working with a blank vanilla piece which was just too plain. The embossed background filled in the space without making it too busy.
I stamped the heart in red, cut it out and cut a matte out of real red. The heart is raised slightly over the ribbon by stampin’ dimensionals. Thanks for dropping in, I have another heart card which I am almost finished which should be up soon.
