Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying our romantic projects this month, and that we are giving you lots of ideas for those special occasions for which you might need to make cards and gifts.
I have two cards to share with you today using the same stamps, but varying the ideas to give two completely different looks.
For my first card, I stamped and embossed the large lacy border and the small heart image from the Harlequin Rose stamp set, using Versamark and clear embossing powder onto a piece of smooth card, which I had cut slightly smaller than my card blank. I coloured the background using a range of Distress Inks, blending them where they met, to create a graduated background.
I ironed the embossing powder off the card using some cheap copy paper underneath the iron to absorb the embossing powder, (remembering to turn off the steam!). I spritzed the background lightly with some water, to create a slightly mottled effect. I stamped the large 'love' from the Words of Love stamp set and added some cream seam binding before attaching the background to the card blank.
