I am excited to share my card with you today. First, a little back story....I've been keeping a secret from you... :-) Have you heard of the Control Freak Swappers? They are an awesomely talented group of SU demos who host the monthly Control Freak Blog Tour as well as a swap group. And, can you guess? Yes...I was invited to join the fun! Truly, this is a big honor for me--it's an amazing group of talent and I am proud to be a Freak! OK, so that's the back story for the card which I made, with today's challenge in mind, for a recent Control Freak Swap!
Oh my gosh, there are so many products that I love from the new Spring Catalog on this card! First, I stamped a sentiment from the new set Cross My Heart in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut the shape.
The heart is punched from Primrose Petals cardstock with the Owl punch and got a glossy look with some Crystal Effects. See the Pool Party heart behind the sentiment? The heart was cut with a Heart Framelit and over-stamped with the chevron oval stamp from the new Oh, Hello set. Love this set, too!
And, I know you noticed the deep impressions of the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder, right? Isn't it gorgeous? This tiny little heart from the Tiny Tags set decorates a few of the honeycomb spaces. Finally, I added another heart under the sentiment and layered a piece of the yummy More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper to the front as well as the inside.
Sorry for the photo-heavy post but I wanted to show you all the little details I so love adding! And speaking of show, I just know the rest of the Design Team has some wonderful projects to show you. Be sure to check them out, including our 5 new Guest Designers! I hope you'll get your craft on and join us before the challenge closes on Friday, January 11th at Noon (PST). Have a great week everyone!
