Love is....

Another 'Love' card today.

The word stamp is an old Docrafts wood mounted one with the date 2004 on the side, so I guess I've had it quite a while!  I stamped it with Versafine 'Satin Red'.   I die cut the image with a cross stitch die, hand cut a red mat to layer it on and used a strip of cross stitch ribbon to match.   The background is embossed with a Creative Expressions 'Heart Lattice' e/f.  I added a punched scalloped heart, embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' e/f to finish off my card.


I am joining in the following challenges:

  16. Hi Liz

    Your card is beautiful and I love the words and the embossed background very much.

    Lots of my stamps (and papers for that matter) are very old but still going strong .. .. I have parted with some though to an old folks home so they can have a play with them.

    Hope you have had a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  18. This is gorgeous and I'm so glad to see you use an older stamp. I wish we all used a lot of older stamps to give them the love we had for them when we got them. I have so many older stamps I don't need new ones but that doesn't seem to stop me from buying new things. I used paper today on my card from the 90's I think. I still love it.

Love the embossing too, just give it a classy look. Beautiful ribbon as well. Well as you can read, I'm in love with the whole card! lol Hugs, Brenda

  26. I really like your bold, large sentiment and stamping it in red was a great idea. Love all the stitchery details you've added and the perfect finish is the sweet dotty embossing on the heart. Thank you for joining in with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
