First up I have a very special Valentine's gift I made for my husband, Andy.
Stop back on Friday for the directions & supplies on how to make this adorable Valentine's dresser.
Next up is a truly beautiful card. I can honestly say that because my Card Club members said it was! This is one of the cards they made this month:
The color combo is Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink with Black & White. See? Gorgeous, right?!
We spritzed the black card stock layer with a mixture of rubbing alcohol & Champagne shimmer paint (2 oz of alchol with 1/2 tsp of Shimmer paint in a travel spray bottle). Then we ran it through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines embossing folder. The alcohol in the spray makes the texture even deeper!
We added three different sizes of rhinestone or pearl jewels where this pretty folder leaves the 5 embossed circles in a row.
Can you see the clear heart Bitty Button? It matches this image perfectly. The Razzleberry layer was embossed using the new & amazing Framed Tulips embossing folder.
