I was recently honored to be chosen as the Belle of Belli over at The Creative Belli Challenge Blog and was asked to be a guest designer. The challenge this fortnight is to create a card using a heart and of course embellishments that have been lurking in your stash.
Today's card has some of my favorite things. It uses my very favorite Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder. My mom had dotted Swiss curtains when I was little and used it often in sewing projects for us girls. I used it too when I was a teenager making my own wardrobe. It always seems to be fresh, clean, and happy to me. The card has some pretty Prima flowers. I really like the dots on the flowers, I think they reflect the dotted Swiss nicely and of course they HAD to have rhinestone centers. What good is a Valentine card without rhinestones? There just has to be some sort of sparkle. Lastly it has a bow and even the bow had dots. I use bows quite often and have a wonderful peg bow maker inspired by one that Becca from Amazing Paper Grace created. BTW she is now sellling these wonderful bow makers through Our Daily Bread. I am not connected to this company or Becca. She just happened to come up with a great tool.
Now start rooting through your stash and see what you can find to create your own heart card and join in on the challenge. It's tons of fun and looking through that stash it's always inspiring.
