In searching through my rather generous collection of folders, I was surprised to find only one with a love theme or hearts! It is the sweet Couture Creations - Smooch folder. It is so cute that I made several cards with it. I hope they are sufficiently unique to qualify as three separate entries....but if not, I totally understand!
Remember when sanding the surface of cardstock was super-popular??? I had not sanded a dry embossed surface for quite some time so I decided to use that technique for each of my cards. It always gives such a soft velvety texture to the design. I hunted through my Core'dinations cardstock stacks for pinks and reds with contrasting or coordinating colors beneath the surface that would be exposed by the sanding.
I rediscovered a pad I had not used much.....an old Core'dinations Black Magic stack. It has a thin layer of black paper fibers over a colored core. How fun is this??? I used a glitter gel pen to add accents onto the black surface and embellished with ribbon and some charms. LOVE!!
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set - retired
Couture Creations - Smooch embossing folder
Core'dinations Black Magic 6x6 Cardstock
Core'dinations Sand-it Gadget
Sakura Glitter Gel Pen
Ribbon and Charms from my stash
Hope you liked this fun card! Stay tuned for a couple more posts using this same embossing folder!
