!HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Hope your holidays were fantastic! And you're off to a good start for 2012. My start hasn't been so good. Coldest days we've had in Central FL and no heat and plumbing troubles. So I've been busy scheduling and working with repairmen. UGH.
Enough of my woes let's get on to my project.............
Now I must apologize for the quality of the pics. The card is pink & white but in some of the pics it has a yellowish/orange overtone. The first pic above is a true color.
I am entering this in:
Joan's Gardens Challenge #1 -
■Make a card and/or tag using some kind of hearts
■Use any kind of embellishments
■Use, pink or red with white
■Do some kind of embossing
Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Use Punches and Die Cuts TT010512
Last But Not Least Challenge - use something new
My new tool is the MS Swirling Lace around the page punch set and what you can't see; Glubber dots under the rose.
I saw this format on Chocolate Crafts and Bears OH My blog. You can see it here. Carol had links to where she found it and to a video she did of how to do all the folding. I believe Carol called a 'napkin fold' card. Anyway, I fell in love with this when I saw on Heartfelt Creations Wednesday blog post and went over to Carol's to see more of it. Isn't it great! I've included several photos so you can really see how 3 dimensional it is.
I'm not one to do Valentine's but when I started playing around with this pattern this just sort of evolved to meet the challenge requirements. And I so love the way it turned out!
