To Someone I Love


This week's challenge at Pile it On is "To the One You Love". I made this card to send to my daughter who is away at college. I wanted to do something vintage and girly for her. I have had this heart with the beautiful rose chintz pattern cut out and sitting on my desk for a couple of days. I had used the DP for another project and the heart was just one of those elements that you cut or make and then they really do work for the current project so you set them aside. But I didn't really set it aside. I had it propped up on my craft table because it was so pretty and have been looking at it all week. This just seemed to be the right project to use it on. I silver embossed the Letters of Love (SU) on Mellow Moss and cut them with Labels 1 Nesties. All the DP is digital paper printed on my home printer. I embossed a layer of Very Vanilla and sponged it with Creamy Caramel. The main element is from SU's See it With the Heart set stamped on vellum with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink and trimmed out. It's layered over a Very Vanilla heart. The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die purchased from SU, cut from Mellow Moss CS and then silver embossed with a filigree pattern. Add some pearls, end caps and Prima flowers and this card was ready to be photographed and posted. Here are the challenges I have Piled it On to this week:
I hope you will take time to stop by the Pile it On blog to see what the other teams members have whipped up this week for your inspiration.

Blessings,

WOW Linda this is gorgeous!! I love the shabby look of it and all your details are so pretty!!!
I am so glad I followed the link from your comment!!
And to let you know that I ordered the grunge collection about a year ago and it is when they produced the stamps in the US so she had them send one to me right from the factory! Apparently they don't use them anymore!!
Sorry!!!
Thanks for the visit though!
