SPECIAL VALENTINES - CAN YOU HAVE TOO MUCH LACE? STAMPIN' UP! ® LACE DYNAMIC TIEF
GINGHAM AND LACE
Can you tell these photos are both the same card, just with different lighting? I do love the FREE Grapefruit Grove iridescent foil in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I snapped the photo on the left near a window in natural light (it's overcast today) and couldn't seem to get the proper angle to show off the gorgeous highlights in this foil. I had the card sitting on my desk getting ready to post some details and thought I'd see how it looked under my halogen desk lamp. Wow! So, I had to include both pics for you.
This is a really simple card, although certainly fussy-looking. The mat layer is Smoky Slate because SS is the only gingham ribbon I have and I wanted to use it for a little contrast with all that lace. The top layer is just WW embossed with the Dynamic Lace TIEF, as is the larger die-cut heart. You could also emboss the smaller heart. I decided to use "thankful for you" rather than the typical Valentine phrases. Larger heart and sentiment are popped up on Dimensionals. That's it!
