I haven't blogged for a week, haven't been well all week but hopefully am on the mend now!
Anyway this week over at the Cuttlebugspot Nilda asked us to make a card/project using one of the new Cuttlebug embossing folders recently released. I used 'Victoria' as it's one of my favourites and I can see me using this lots!
My DT card this week is different for me I think it has a 'days gone by look' and I also wanted to try my new Cricut cartridge A Child's Year. It has such beautiful cuts and lots of extras and an alphabet!
My card is 8x8" covered with DCWV paper from the Luxury stack, I thought this paper matched the CB Victoria folder so well. I cut the heart with Plantin school twice base 4 3/4 " with pink pearlescent card and shadow once in cream pearlescent. The top base is embossed with CB Victoria folder and then adhered to the other base cut. I then adhered ribbon with organza frilled edge right around the heart and pop dotted the heart onto the shadow heart. I cut the valentine children from A Child's Year cart at 3 3/4" base in DCWV Luxury stack and shadow in pink pearlescent adhered and inked to death! then pop dotted onto the heart. The sentiment is computer generated 'Childhood' is Castellar font and 'Sweethearts' is Edwardian Script ITC. I cut the sentiment with spellbinders Labels 4 in two sizes and again pop dotted and inked. I added some flowers from my stash and some tiny pink pearl flowers in the centres. Just some pink satin ribbon from my stash to the top and botton of the heart to finish.
