I LOVE you...CR84FN12 56

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 22, 2011 @ 9:57 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Here today with an all new CR84FN Color Challenge! I am thrilled to pieces to see so many players join in the fun week after week and to see so many sweet friends sign up to follow the challenge :) Many thanks! I made this rather Clean and Simple card of sorts:
I paired some Melissa Frances DP with My Mind's Eye, stitched on a bit of lace, adhered an embossed/sanded foil heart then topped off my card with a lil' paper doily, a beautiful pink paper rose and a tag bearing the sentiment I LOVE you from Sweethearts
In case you haven't noticed, I am really lovin' Spellbinders Pearl colored foil especially combined with the S4-296 Nested Hearts die templates! I wish this was sold BULK in a roll ~ I am sure it would sell like hot cakes! Up close, you can see all the gorgeous embossed detail design on the heart die cut:
Here's a pic of the 3 various size hearts that are included in the S4-296 Nested Hearts set and a sample of each size cut/embossed and sanded using Spellbinders Red Premium Craft foil:

That's all I have for today! Thanks so much for looking and I sure hope you hop on over to visit the CR84FN Design Team's projects: Sue, Suzanne, Heather, Lisa, Deborah, Meredith, Stephanie and Andrea for some awesome inspiration!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sweethearts
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities®  S4-296 Nested Hearts, S5-022 Labels Ten,  F-012 Precious Metals Premium Craft Foils (Pearl),  S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances, My Mind's Eye
