Young Love!

Card making has yet again been taking a back seat lately – along with all the usual pressures, the school at which I’m a Governor got “the call” on Tuesday and Ofsted descended for 2 days. So it’s taken me a week to finish this card, which I started last Saturday as soon as I heard that our nephew Adam had got down on one knee & proposed to his gorgeous girlfriend Kasanita.

The heart was inspired by Fran Seiford from Stampendous, who I had seen doing embossing techniques that morning on Hochanda. I realised I had almost everything I needed to try it for myself, the only difference being I had to melt the powders in the oven for 15 minutes! I used a combination of UTEE and various other embossing powders I’ve had in for several years, melted onto pre-cut chipboard to give a very 3 dimensional heart which proved to be VERY difficult to photograph!

The creative process then stalled until today when I saw the sketch below at Freshly Made Sketches, where I’m entering this into their challenge. I’m also entering it into the embossing challenge at AAA Cards.

  2. Your heart is absolutely stunning! And it’s shown off perfectly with your use of this sketch. I like the simple embossed swirls as a backdrop. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
