Once upon a time on one of the home decorating shows I love to watch on TV, a designer said "every good design should include a touch of black". After I made this very pink card, I added the touches of black and knew it was a good idea!
I began by stamping six rows of Penny Black's Rose Edging stamp on my white cardstock. I then added a layer of vellum that came embossed with tiny roses. Love the texture it added. I sewed the three layers together and then stamped my sentiment from Penny Black's From the Heart set.
I don't know of another flower die that has the intricate detail that this Rose die from Penny Black has!! I cut three layers and stacked them and let the last layer of leaves remain free of glue. I like the dimension that adds.
For balance, I added the little black dots and then sat back and pondered ... it needed something else. That little wooden heart was on my desk, just waiting to be colored and glued into place. Just right!
Making Valentines has been a distraction from the severe cold we are experiencing. As I look out my window, I see a dusting of snow on my neighbors' roofs. A snow storm is expected south of us later today. Imagine!! Southern Alabama and Georgia closing schools due to snow!!
Stay warm and thanks for stopping by!!
