The beauty of simplicity
Sometimes the simple things in life are the best, and that is exactly what I had in mind when I created this card using a beautiful heart stamp sent to me by Stamp Addicts.
Those of you who visit my blog regularly will have worked out that I am more of a cutie / character kind of person when I comes to card making, so this particular stamp is a little out of my comfort zone, as it strikes me as being quite vintage. So I decided to keep the card very simple and the the beauty of the stamp speak for itself.
I dug out some of my old stash for this card including my once much loved embossing powders and some gorgeous ribbon that I found lurking in the bottom of my ribbon box.
Once I had stamped and embossed the heart, I then matted it on to some matching card before carefully sticking ribbon on each of the four edges, to frame the central image. The entire panel has then been mounted on to the base card using sticky fixers to give that little bit of lift.
Here are some challenges that I would like to enter today:
