I needed a card last week for my stamp club and I was getting stuck in a rut with always turning to flowers to stamp with. But then my friend, Annie, came over and reminded me about the cute designer frames embossing folder set and I saw my Love You More stamp set and suddenly things started coming together. I won’t tell you how long I futzed with the final elements trying to decide – should the bird have pink or just red, should the stamped frame be at an angle or straight, should the ribbon be near the top or down near the bird…. but eventually I settled on this! : )
I even broke out the Alphabet Press embossing folder (on sale this week with the weekly deals!) for the background. I’ve had this folder for a while but keep forgetting to try it out. Doesn’t it sand awesomely?
And for the finishing touch, I just had to use the “Made with Love” sentiment from the same set to complete the card by stamping it on the back.
Just a reminder, if you love this set, it is only available until January 27th. It’s not in a catalog but you can find it in the Valentine’s Product’s section in the Online Store.
