These other 2 samples are for a Valentine's Day Card Class I'm doing at the beginning of next month.
This first card uses the new background script stamp from SU! I stamped it on this patterned paper because I could not find the right paper for this card. I don't know about you but since I discovered this it has opened my eyes to all kinds of possibilities with making my own patterned paper using patterned paper and background stamps!
The nice thing about this first card is the embossed embellishment. What I discovered (maybe you already knew this) is that when you emboss something you can bend it and shape it a bit to make it more interesting. I bent the crown so that it was more rounded and used a dimensional (just in the middle) to hold it's shape.
Here's a close up view:
The second card is pretty self explanatory - some sanding of patterned paper, a scalloped punched heart, some faux stitching with a white gel pen (this is the Signo pen from SU! and it really is the best one out there!!!), some distressing of the pink paper with brown ink and some ribbon. I really like the thicker grosgrain ribbon from SU! and knew I had to use it on this card.
Only 2 cards finished for this class for now but I've got 2 more in the works and I'll post them later this weekend.
