CCM #227 Love, Love, Love

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Love.

I made my card for my Daughter and Son-in-Law’s Wedding Anniversary.

I started with a nice white sheet and coloured it up with Distress Oxides, adding some splatters of water and some pixie powders on the top. I used this to create the back mat and also the hearts and the background for the sentiment.

The hearts and sentiment, which I stamped and embossed with white ink and embossing powder are both from Wendy Vecchi’s Studio 490 Love to Make Art stamp set. Having stamped the hearts I fussy cut them and added them and the sentiment on foam pads.

The gorgeous diecut was also cut from the main sheet I created using a Tattered Lace die, Detailed Flourish D218.

I am entering this into::-
