Love Lives Here
Today I have a card that focuses more on embossing than on stamping. I used the Jumbo Heart Border Die from Taylored Expressions and embossed it across the kraft panel. I then took some patterned paper from the Valentine Project Pantry Kit and die cut the top of it with the same die so that the paper would nest perfectly along the embossed border. I also used one of the dies in the Hearts a Plenty Die set and embossed it on the upper part of the card. I then die cut that same die using patterned paper and cardstock from the Valentine Project Pantry and "paper pieced" it on the embossed image. Because it was already embossed into the cardstock, the die cut piece nestle down in so it looks like it's pressed into the cardstock rather than sitting on top. It looks pretty neat in person. :)
As finishing touches I added some ribbon and used a white gel pen for some faux stitching and to fill in the dots in the border. The sentiment is from the Love Shack set.
