Hi everyone! Today I'm posting the card that I made for the monthly challenge of the blog group that I belong to. This month's challenge was to create a Valentine card using hearts. Our blog group recently started weekly challenges and this week's challenge was to use polka dots so I decided to combine both challenges and the polka dots I used are on my designer series paper.
I used a current Sale-a-bration stamp set called sprinkled expressions and I just stamped the heart and punched it out using my circle punch. The black layer behind my heart is actually the blossom flower punch that I punched twice and then I placed them on top of each other so that they looked like a larger scallop circle.
My dry embossed heart layer I made using the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders- heart folder found in the current Stampin' Up! mini catalog. These strip embossing folders are great for embossing a smaller portion for your projects.
Other than that finishing my card was just a matter of assembling it. I decided to use a mini clothespin with a small piece of red and white twine tied around it and then I added a ribbon tied with a knot.
I hope you liked my card and be sure to check out the other challenge cards from our Crafty Gals blog group. The link to their blogs can be found on the right side of my blog in the side bar.
Thanks for visiting & have a great rest of the day. Enjoy the super bowl too!
