Here is a Valentine I made for my Hubby. It is my entry into this weeks Cricut Circle Weekly Blog Challenge. The challenge is to make a valentine with two Cricut cuts and sequins or gems and ribbon.
I used the Love is in the Air Word Art embossing folder. I used a some scraps of chipboard to make a base so that the hearts on the side of the embossing folder did not emboss. I then embossed a piece of white Bazzil Bling paper . I punched out many little hearts and placed them over the little hearts on the embossed image. I added some tiny gems around the embossed swirls.
The bow is a piece of burgundy ribbon as well as a bow from white glittery tulle.
I cut the lips and hearts from the Love Struck Cartridge in a shimmery burgundy cardstock, and adhered them to the card front with pop dots over the space that where the hearts would have embossed.
I then matted the embossed image on red Bazzil Bling paper and then onto a black card base.
I never really know the best way to showcase these types of embossing images in my projects. Its easier to use the repeating pattern embossing folders. I never mind layering things on top of them, but with these larger images without a repeat pattern, I often find myself struggling with what section to cover up with the top layer of the design.
Thanks for coming... I hope you enjoyed your visit today.
Have a Great and Crafty Day!
